Rampage To His TRT Critics | "Get Rid Of Your Slave Mentality"

Quote:
“If I was losing my hair and the doctor told me, ‘You need a hair transplant,’ I’m going to do a hair transplant. If I get my tooth knocked out like Randy Couture did against [Lyoto] Machida, I’m going to get a new tooth put in my mouth. If my testosterone gets low and the doctor tells me, ‘You need to raise your levels back up to where you used to be when you were 25,’ and you’re fighting these young folks, I’m going to go do it. I feel like it’s a medical condition. I have to say this. I have to say this and maybe some people will get mad, but I feel like whoever’s getting mad at me for healing myself up, [there’s] an old saying, a slave mentality, like, ‘Oh, how dare you make yourself 100 percent to be fighting out there.’ That’s what comes to my mind.”

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is still finding himself under fire for his admitted Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).

While a guest on Sherdog Radio he wanted to make it clear that he doesn’t care what the critics thinks and believes they need to change their attitude.

Who out there is against the use of TRT regardless of circumstance?

Forget TRT replacement, I think Rampage really needs to start looking into some kind of brain cell replacement...

If the doctor says you need it then take it.

Rampage's issues go far beyond TRT though, I'm just waiting to find out he's had another mental breakdown.

Who's his manager? They really need to tell him to stop doing interviews whoever it is.

Rampage should get rid of the "I'm still a top LHW even though I haven't evolved and i'm still a flat-footed boxer, and I lose to average fighters" mentality.

Umm...what the hell is he talking about? In what world does people thinking the trt thing is a scam have any god damn thing to do with slavery?

Also, I hate to kick a dead horse, but screw it. Rampage, you arent 25, your testosterone levels arent supposed to be the same as they were when you were that age, its called getting older and losing a step athletically. At least Hendo and Chael can make a decent arguement as to why they need it, Rampage just comes off like a dumbass.

I think a lot of people hate Rampage and want to see him fail due to him threatening to smack Stephan Bonnar, Rich Franklin & other incidents.

He is right about people treating him unfairly but doesn't seem to realize the reason for it which is a shame.

/Still a fan.

Since when is getting a tooth replaced... or getting new hair... performance enhancing?

Rampage is getting defensive about it and saying some pretty silly stuff to justify his treatment.

I'm a long time fan of Rampage but come on, fighters saying this TRT stuff is anything but allowed cheating are either liars or just delusional.

So fighters found a loophole to roid, and I guess it's nice that it's getting real casual because atleast now all the fighters can do it and not just the wrestlers from one certain ring of friends. But if Rampage is going to act all outspoken and honest atleast stay true and say "I want to use a chemical performance enhancer because im getting old and I am becoming a bad fighter" this "oh the doctor says I need it" is just stupid.
