Lyoto Machida on TRT "I would do"

File this one under surprising.
Apparently UFC middleweight Lyoto Machida has no qualms about testosterone replacement therapy and its use in his sport.
Machida has been all over the media after his unanimous decision win over Gregard Mousasi at UFC Fight Night 36. He spoke to Brazilian website Lance!Net about his thoughts on the upcoming middleweight title fight between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belort.
The most surprising exchange came when ‘The Dragon’ was asked about his thoughts on Belfort’s TRT use:
“I think it is fair if it is according with the rules. Anyone has his reasons, such as physical, technical or personal. If he (Belfort) really has this condition, there is no problem. I would do. If I was in the rules and to match with everybody else’s condition, there wouldn’t be a problem. People talk a lot of things but he is doing everything straight.”
And as far as Belfort’s chances against Wediman?:
“I think this is a tough matchup for both. Anyone can win. I think that in the beginning of the fight Belfort has more chances but Weidman compensates with endurance. He is a young guy with a lot of consciousness.”

Its kinda hard to know exactly what he meant but i think he is saying if he had a condition where he could not produce Testosterone that he would be willing to do TRT aslong as it is within the rules.

Which imo there is nothing wrong with that. And no i do not want to argue about it lol
