Doctor says Chael Sonnen's hypogonadism is caused by past steroid use

"Was Chael Sonnen a big time collegiate wrestler? Yes he was. I'm going to opine and say to you, there's no way in the world you get to the level of collegiate wrestling that Chael Sonnen was at, with hypogonadism. Let me explain to you why. Hypogonadism means that the testes did not produce enough testosterone for one to normally mature. He wasn't on TRT as a teenager. He became this big, muscled up monster and NCAA wrestler with hypogonadism? Hell no. The truth of the matter is, you could never get to that level, because you're not going to have the muscle mass and strength to get you there. They're going to run you over. Your body will not allow you to develop enough muscle and strength to compete at your size. If he has hypogonadism, it's from one thing, and one thing only, because he treated himself with steroids in the past, and wrecked his testes. That's it."

Makes sense, but it still isn't really backed up by hard evidence. I think the good doctor might be held liable for libel.

I be surprised if that is completely true, in fact I'd be kind of surprised if it wasnt. That being said I don't think any differently of the guy either way.

Is this why he sounds like he's still going through puberty. It all makes sense now.

Exactly. Anyone who believes these cheats' poor "why me hypoganism?!! damn you!" sob stories needs to get a grip ... you don't become an olympic level athlete if you're truly a genetic victim of this thing.

This loophole needs to be plugged, stat. It's a travesty.

That doctor's a ******* idiot.

He's lucky me and the rest of Team Sonnen don't stomp his ass for trying to soil the name of an American hero, I bet he's married to a Brazilian.

Well, unless he has hard evidence he should keep his mouth shut.

Beleive it or not doctors can and often are wrong. I know, i used to work with them. You think it takes a really smart peron to be a docto? It really does not.

GSP

Yes it does take a smart person to be a doctor. You obviously have no clue what it takes to even GET IN to med school, let alone successfully complete it. The doctor is absolutely right in this case, and you are extremely gullible if you think Sonnen has never taken steroids.

As a MMA fan I don't care about steroid. I just want to see him fight!
