This means absolutely nothing. As long as TRT is allowed with an exemption by the athletic commissions, there is nothing DW can do. The fighters with TRT exemptions are already monitored & tested in the jurisdiction there next fight is in anyways.

It's not like Zuffa can go around testing every fighter in the UFC randomly all year long. If they did, you would have many more fighters testing positive & suspended for recreational drugs(weed) than you would for testosterone levels.

Keep blowing smoke DW.

Guys should always have been fighting on 'natural' testosterone levels & there should be some graph or pie chart or some sh1t to tell them whats natural. Meaning, those levels drop as you get older. As you age your experience is supposed to be your advantage.

I agree. But Dana talks more smack than anyone on the face of the earth and rarely follows through with any of it. So, while I agree with Dana, i'll believe it when I see it.

Utter bullshit this. Like if GSP was caught using TRT tomorrow, Dana would have have him banned and thrown out of his organization. Dana just this week tabled an offer to multiple time banned substance abuser Josh Barnett. And know hes acting like hes taking a staunch approach for a clean sport.

Dana reminds me of the people that go out and drink, get these great ideas and are all about it. "i am going to do this this and this, you just wait!" and then they sober up and it's back to normal life while nothing gets done about it.

I sometimes wonder how different the MMA history books would look if there was to be a systematic roll-up of everything PED related in the UFC from the very beginning like we have seen in cycling this last decade. With actually capable and thorough testing by an independent company, assisted by high government. How many champions and legends would come back clean. And it makes me go off the sport somewhat, because I don't think there would be too many of them.

While I agree with that to a certain degree. The only topic I can think of that he's been so aggressive about, and I don't even think it was quite so aggro, was the r*ape van thing. Feel free to remind me but any others I can think of haven't been so important/aggressively put over.

Women's MMA. Couple years back Dana was constantly saying that we will never see women in UFC. Gee, how'd that one work out? What's that? You're going to have women headlining a UFC event next week? Good one Dana.
