I couldn't disagree with Dana White's point nor his wording more. First of all, if as Dana puts it, "every guy's testosterone starts to drop as they get older," than isn't THAT "normal?" Having a lower testosterone level at 35 than 19 is normal. Artifically enhancing it back is not.

Plus, where does one draw the line? Humans produce growth hormones when they're younger, and those taper off to some degree as we get older. Why not start taking HGH to get those levels back? I mean c'mon. There's more holes in that argument than swiss cheese.

Everyone gets older, athletes included. Artificially extending a competitor's career life is still just that: artificial. To me it defeats a major purpose of martial arts and taints the sport. My 2 cents.

As long as theyre pissing clean according to fair, reasonable guidelines I dont care what they do.


If i was fighting at the highest level, I'd probably go to Sinai hospital and get my limbs lengthened to gain an advantage, so maybe my opinion is a jaded one.

For what it's worth, Timothy Bradley said he had never even heard of TRT when they asked him about it during one of his work outs.

I wasnt aware football was a olympic sport. Unless you are talking about soccer/football ofcourse.

I need to brush up on my olympic sports i guess.

Anyway

Im guessing the NFL banned trt also??? But my guess is steroids is much more common there then it is in MMA. But that just a guess based on the size of those monsters.


btw
Can i get your account??

I dont watch any other sports except for MMA so i dont think having an extra mma forum account can hurt. Plz?

I just did a quick Google search on "testosterone replacement therapy in sports" and every link on the first page is MMA related.
TRT is an MMA thing as far as professional sports.

But you have to realize that humans also didnt used to live to the age they do now a days (Because of MEDICINE). ALL the medicine we take is to upset the natural order of things. So its because of medicine we get to a "unnatural" age and lose so much testosterone in the first place. So now we are just balancing with medicine what we unbalanced with medicine in the first place.

You cant pick and choose what medicine is okay or not okay or whats natural and what isnt natural. Its either all okay or none of it is okay. A guy taking caugh medicine can in turn help his performance come game time because he isnt sick.

The focus should be on increasing the testing and making sure the testosterone is within the limits OR maybe even lowering the maximum allowed testosterone.
