Today, MMA Opinion received news from a Q&A that Dana attended with fans in London that he has now switched his stance on testosterone replacement therapy from “it’s legal!” to ‘TRT is cheating, and we’re coming after anyone that uses it:

“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 ************s because we’re going to test the **** out of you.”

If he follows through...... it would paint him in a good light in my eyes for the first time in years.

It's fairly simple. Fighters with exemptions need to be tested more. As Henderson himself has stated, there should be know reason to get your testosterone that high accidentally. However, people who have tested positive for steroids shouldn't even get an exemption. Vitor and Marquardt have proven they shouldn't be trusted.

I wonder what Cyborg's testosterone count is at between fights.

TRT isn't cheating any more than cutting 20 lbs so that you outweigh and outmuscle you opponent is; its the same punk mindset of an unfair advantage. I hate hearing people talkiing about being the best when they stack the deck in their favor.

Looking over the entirety of their careers up to this point the P4P best are: 1. BJ Penn , 2.Frankie Edgar, 3. Saku, 4. Hendo, and 5. Jon Jones. I place BJ ahead of Frankie because he moved UP in weigh and won the title while Frankie moved DOWN in weight and lost his title bout.

Anything that can be done naturally i.e. weight cutting, is not cheating.

It's not cheating but watching Rumble in the WW division made me sad as a fan.

That was pretty insane.  If you can imagine, Minowaman was fighting a weightclass heavier than Rumble.

If someone with TRUE primary hypogonadism, they can't just stop TRT. Secondary dz requires long recovery after stopping TRT.

@P4pCool after TRT let's make protein supplements and multi vitamins illegal too."


Are you seriously trying to pretend that protein supplements and Multi Vitamins are equivalent to trt?

@Franklin - Among his favourite fighters are Marquardt, Chael, Hendo, Vitor, etc.  I think he's just being biased and irrational rather than facing the truth.  I've noticed that most people defending TRT are either the fighters using it or the fans of the fighters using it.
