Hypogonadism can be caused by inflammatory diseases in particular STAPH infections. Staph is very common in contact sports like Football, wrestling, MMA. Drysdale pulled out of his fight in August with a Staph infection. The commission didn't rule on Drysdale's case, by the surprise test it makes me wonder if the commission chose to jam Drysdale up on this rather than make a ruling.



Seeing what Staph does to a person I do not believe limiting their medical treatment by removing steroids is right.

I dare any of you to go through this page, and not change a hard-lined position against "PED's".

loved that Swanson post. I am a Drysdale fan so I really hope that he's clean.... I was so excited to see him in the UFC. Imagine Vinny V Drysdale!

They aren't prevented from using steroids for medical treatment they just can't fight while doing it. They shouldn't be fighting while having staph either so I don't see your point.

I think his point was that his levels may still be elevated from treatment, but that he was clear to fight (staph wise). I don't really buy that as the levels fall off pretty quick once you stop using it.

They surprise tested him, his T/E levels may very well have been down by fight night

I don't have a problem with people using TRT as long as they test within the accepted limits as per the athletic commissions set standards. I don't get why this is such a difficult issue. If you are above the levels, you don't get to fight or you get fined and get your fight turned over to a NC (if you win). This shouldn't be that complicated.
