How can you possibly not be complaining? LOOK AT THE ******* GUYS WHO TAKE FUKING TRT!!! Do they look weak or like roided up athletes? Seriously open your eyes. The stupidity of people annoys me so hard. The allowed levels are 6:1 from a normal man btw.

So? The commission sets the guidelines...he met them! Don't blame the fighters, blame the commission and get them to change the levels if you don't like it!

Guidelines are bullshit when you know when you will get tested. Just like every other sport, people are cycling their roids or what ever they take.
How many times did Lance armstrong get tested positive while he was active? OH NEVER.
Still he did something that is literally impossible for a human being. What happened a few years later? They found roids in his frozen blood samples.
Do the same with the fighter, let them do bloodsampled every month, once a TRT license is in question, test those samples will be tested.

Overeem got caught on a random drugtest, what a suprise...
He should have known better and stopped raiding after the Brock incident.

I try to be civil in these discussions, I think inflammatory comments do nobody any good.

That said, this is just stupid. Seriously stupid. Ralph Wiggum stupid. Overeem's T/E levels were 14 times the average levels, and he tried to pretend it was because there was synthetic T in his anti-inflammatory medication (Not TRT as you stupidly claim.)

Mir, on the other hand, has not been tested with abnormal levels of testosterone as defined by the commission, and hasn't tried to bypass the commission's regulations with childish excuses.

Your comparison is idiotic.

Not really, I think a lot of naive people were talking about how it was totally plausible for a guy to get that huge in a short amount of time, but there were quite a few people who realized(myself included) that Mir was juicing

Maybe I should go see my doctor about TRT. You know, find out what the fuzz is all about.

If it was abuse then the commission would've chosen a lower required ratio.
