Dana White ‘absolutely 100 percent against TRT,' says usage is*‘cheating'
 
"TRT has become a way for people to cheat. If this is what your normal level should be and then you have guys training at huge levels (of testosterone) for their whole camp then tapering down to get to normal levels before the ******* fight, that's cheating, and I don't like it anymore."

"There are plenty of guys in the UFC that are naturally gifted and talented fighters. If you're testosterone levels are too low then you're probably too old to be fighting, stop fighting! "

"We can test everybody. I'm telling you right now, if you are using testosterone replacement therapy, get ready mother****ers because we're going to test the shit out of you."

"Some things recently have led me to believe that people are ******* cheaters, people are taking good things and turning it into a bad thing and if you want to play those games then guess what, we'll play!"

"There's so much shit out there. Right now there's banned substances and we follow the regulations and we're going after the banned substances, TRT was never one of them and they would be tested leading up to the fight to make sure the levels are good. If you're on TRT now, you're going to wish you weren't. We're going to test the living shit out of you."

"You have guys that go in there 100% natural with his talent and natural ability, against someone on TRT, basically someone that's on steroids. I'm absolutely 100 percent against TRT and now I'm going to start fighting it 100 percent with the athletic commissions and I want nothing to do with it."

There's a Hardeep who fought in Super Fight League!

Way to contradict himself and alienate half his fighters; Hendo, Chael, Vitor, Mir Griffin, etc.

I'm loving this! I said this before that I thought the UFC and the commissions should be the ones setting the proper standards and I'm all for them testing guys on TRT more than they're currently doing. I agreed with everything he just said, and that's a pretty rare for me.

I'd rep Dana if I could.

about time

Dana's blowing smoke. I highly doubt he's going to go after guys like Henderson, Sonnen, and Belfort.

Yep. Action speaks louder than words. So unless they really start testing regularly, it's just some PR babbling.

For God's sake every single war on drugs ever has failed miserably. Just legalize it and let the fighters do what they want, it's actually depressing that we still have to have these conversations in like 10 threads every week...
