Hypogonadism can be caused by inflammatory diseases in particular STAPH infections. Staph is very common in contact sports like Football, wrestling, MMA. Drysdale pulled out of his fight in August with a Staph infection. The commission didn't rule on Drysdale's case, by the surprise test it makes me wonder if the commission chose to jam Drysdale up on this rather than make a ruling.

Seeing what Staph does to a person I do not believe limiting their medical treatment by removing steroids is right.

I dare any of you to go through this page, and not change a hard-lined position against "PED's".
