This!

what needs to happen is either a rules change or at least a clarification when it comes to testosterone. i think it would be great if the NSAC or CSAC put out a press release explaining to the fans and fighters exactly what is accepted and what the exemptions are. right now, some of the people clearly are getting away with it on the regular while some guys are getting caught and turned into villians. I don't think Dan Henderson, who has admitted openly to using TRT, has ever failed a test of any kind.

Putting up 100lbs more is more that TRT will do for you. It would take serious steroids to accomplish that.

And if you say that it's cheating, do you also frown on those who have better diets and supplements that will keep their natural test levels higher? They are putting stuff in their bodies to make them perform better. Not the same thing?

Some people just make more test than others and trt (in theory, if not abused) should just even the playing field.
