Condit Suggests Link Between Past Steroid Use And Low Testosterone | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Carlos Condit in an interview with Gracie Mag

Condit discusses topics such as his next opponent, Nick Diaz, Georges St-Pierre, TRT and Jiu-Jitsu.

“I think it’s a slippery slope, you know what I mean? You let guys start using testosterone and it’s … where does it end? You know what I mean? I wonder, especially for younger guys, I know Frank Mir’s a little bit older and of course your testosterone levels kind of dip as you get older, but some of these younger guys, you know, guys maybe in their late twenties and thirties using testosterone replacement therapy, I wonder, I wonder why is there testosterone low in the first place? And I, my theory is they may have been using something in the past, because when you use steroids, your body, after you get off has a hard time bringing yourself up to natural levels. I don’t know man. I’m not going to judge anybody, but that’s just, that’s not … I got to where I am without ever ever using any performance enhancing drugs.”

    Douche bag. Said “ya know” 10000 times. I still respect him as a fighter tho. Even tho Diaz beat that ass

    • Majestyk says:

      He didn’t stand and trade with Diaz because that would have been foolish. BJ did, and look what happened to him. Condit’s head movement, footwork, handspeed, and repertoire of strikes was way superior to Diaz. Whether you like his evasive, back-peddling style or not, he landed WAY more strikes, and deserved the win.

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Your completely right about the fight and he was smart to fight Nick that way, but he said he would fight him differently than he did. So a bit of a weasel too…..Also, your name kind of bugs me, it makes me think you drive around with a kings crown on your dashboard!!!??? no offense meant…I’m just bored and thinking out load….

        • Dick Diaz says:

          lol Carlos Condit said it was going to be a dog fight… and I personally had a great time watching that PPV. i still thought it was a great fight. don’t really see why people were disappointed in that bout.

        • Majestyk says:

          The name is an homage to one of Charles Bronson’s greatest movies, “Mr. Majestyk”.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Cool…Bronson movies are too old for me…glad to know you don’t drive around with a kings crown on your dashboard…Peace!

        • Charles Bronson says:

          If my movies are to old for you… Punk ! You must prefer the little boys urinals! Don’t eat the cake son…and don’t say I’m not your father , we don’t know that’ you see I usta fuq buffalo. So I actually could be your daddy’

      • Clay says:

        It was a good fight, but you are extremely wrong. Diaz laned more strikes without a doubt. and kept dominant positioning for longer. Yes condit landed big significant strikes every now and then, but he still got beat forsure. Diaz lost because his reputation. It’s very discriminative.

        • Kujo says:

          Really?? Guess your” without a doubt” and mine are different. And by yours being different i mean wrong. Condit landed more power headshots, greater accuracy on the body, and landed infinitely more leg strikes. And before you say ANYTHING about leg kicks not being effective strike I’d like to invite you to my gyms friday night spar and see how many you can eat in 25 minute without going down.

        • CoCiO says:

          the leg kicks weren’t effective..not the ones he was throwing, anyway..they certainly didn’t slow nick down which was carlos’ intention. Nick slowed because he probably got tired of chasing him the whole time. Watch the Diaz vs Santos fight. Those are leg kicks..

        • Clay says:

          That link is the most unreliable source of information I’ve ever seen. And leg kicks are for pussies who can’t fight. I wouldn’t ever be caught in your white trash gym. Unless I want to learn how to be a pussy

        • I’m really inspired with your writing skills as neatly as with the structure on your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a great blog like this one nowadays..|

  2. saiasaka says:

    Cesar Gracie Jiujitsu what ? what ?

  3. Zack says:

    Nick would’ve tapped him had it gone to the ground 30 seconds earlier

  4. DMAC says:

    Running man trying to get his fan base back by jumping on the hate trt wagon. I think he’s one of the baddest motherfuckers in the sport turned ho cakes brought to you by fake ass Jackson.

    • Nuitari X says:

      I can’t believe so many people talk shit about condit just because of the way he fought diaz. This motherfucker is a badass and he finishes fights, look at his record. Everybody wants to say he was running away but I look at it the same way as when people try to talk shit about camping in first person shooter games, If you wanna run out and get your head blown off like a dumbass then that’s your dumbass fault. If you wanna play smart and pick your shots and only go for the kill when you see an opening more power to ya. People condit threw a couple combos at diaz that would have knocked 95% of anybody else’s ass out. Diaz has good defense. Let this man have his title shot, let’s see what happens (cause anything can happen on any given night) and show some respect to a great fighter, and before anyone says to get off his dick I’ll just let you know that I feel that way about all good fighters regardless of some petty bullshit that people talk about like this cause I’m a true fight fan and I have respect.

  5. WrestlingRules says:

    Yep after that GSP beats his ass easily. This guy ain’t gonna submit GSP. and his flying knees and spinning backfists and any other side show crap will be nullified when GSP keeps distance and peppers his face with jabs then takes his ass down for a few elbows and a choke or two, GSP will finish this guy.

    • James says:

      Please!! GSP can’t finish is own food!!

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Hey that’s your opinion but he has upped his game on the ground and boxing. Condit won’t have much power cuz he’ll be afraid of being taken down. Only way he beats GSP is by how he fought Diaz and hoping the refs give him points. GSP hits hard and can finish. I think we will see a finish by GSP unless he is tentative with the knee. We’ll see…….

        • Not You says:

          Going to have to side with you on that one. GSP has Condit no matter where the fight is. Too smart and way too skilled.

        • netpromo says:

          I cherished as much as you’ll receive performed right here. The caricature is tasteful, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an impatience over that you would like be delivering the following. in poor health definitely come more in the past again as exactly the same nearly a lot ceaselessly inside case you protect this increase.

        • James says:

          GSP’s takedowns will never be the same and that jab won’t work with everyone. Not saying GSP won’t beat condit, but he def won’t finish. Without his takedowns he’s gonna be forced to stand and bang and we all know what happens when he has to do that… Matt Serra can tell ya.. Lol, you’ll never see another finish from GSP, only gettin finished

        • WrestlingRules says:

          If Condit ties to close the distance agressively, GSP takes him down. If Condit can’t stop that then he has no answer for GSP and GSP wins easily. If that happens Condit will melt mentally and then GSP finishes him by a choke or tko…GSP’s takedowns will be flawless. That knee surgery was conducted with minor peripheral damage and that makes for a strong knee. Its the muscle cutting that makes those weak. He’s taking plenty of time to rehab. Other than perhaps ring rust that I expect Firas to beat out of him prior to the fight, Condit has very little game that can beat GSP and GSP has many tools to beat Condit…

        • Jaedr says:

          you make it sound like george can’t take a punch because matt serra (a guy with INCREDIBLE knockout power) was able to tko him? George’s standup is killer. He doesn’t need to go to the ground to beat anyone at 170 unless they are a knockout artist.

  6. chris says:

    Two biggest topics in MMA, trt and Carlos running away from his responsibilities as interim “champion”, just like he ran away from Diaz….hmmm he only wants to talk the first topic tho I wonder why

  7. Bd says:

    Talk about the running man theory … As a interem champ all we have seen from him do is run.. He recently ran from Hendricks and talked about kampman …. Hendricks will put him to sleep !!!!take him down .. You name it

  8. chris says:

    Not to mention he wouldn’t talk kampmann before but now that him and hendricks are fighting its oh yeah id fight kampmann if gsp isn’t ready..he should be punished forced up to 185 and be Brian stann’s next victim

  9. stevo the great says:

    Carlos, defend your belt or shut the fuck up. You are the running man now….there is not an ounce in you that even thinks you beat Diaz….I can see it in your actions…..that’s why you are praying for another fluke win, this time against GSP. Wont happen….you will get ground and pounded….mark my words!

  10. KO'd Your Mom In Bed says:

    Ever since the Diaz fight Condit has been just talking out of his ass…Backpedling the whole fight.

  11. Anomie says:

    He is right, prior steroid use can result in low testosterone. But the problem is that there are also many other causes, including head trauma (which given it is contact sport, is likely to be the main cause).

    Either way there needs to be a regular testing regime for all fighters.

  12. stephen riddle says:

    Cant wait for carlos to get smashed by the super robot gsp! He cant duck that fight.
