Randy Couture On Athletes Using TRT | "Sometimes They Go Too Far With It." | UFC NEWS

“There is such fine line with all of the anti-aging stuff that’s out there now. TRT is generally something a guy does in their 40’s and 50’s when their natural production of testosterone drops off,”

“There are other natural ways to boost your own body’s production without replacing it and it’s safer as well, but it still should be under the care of a physician.”

“It’s a very fine and a very personal thing and there is no easy answer. An athlete is using his body to earn a living and entertain the fans, they want to get the most out of themselves, but sometimes they go too far with it.”

Randy Couture comments in an interview with MMA Frenzy.

Couture has his say on the use of TRT & how some athletes can go too far with it.

Do you agree with TRT use in sports to some extent or should it be totally banned ?

    I have no problem with TRT when it is used legally like Dan hendersen but when you have fighters who have a long gtrack record of CHEATING their way thru life like CHEAT Sonnen who has already been BUSTED abusing it he should be tested montly or denied his exemption. He has on ly himself to blame for shooting himself up with massive amounts of testosterone which made him fight a mile over his head and UFC-Dana white acts like he did nothing wrong and is posater boy for UFC. Sonnen should have been banned from ever having a TRT exemption for having 17 times the legal amount in his system. His level T level was 3400 where as most athletes his age are lucky to have 400. Sonnen is nbot the only one abusing TRT Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt was using it just like he use to use steroids and as a KNOWN steroid abuser who had been busted before with DECA-Nadrolone which is a steroid whiich is purchsed illegally he should have never been granted a TRT exemption. Marquardt admitted to teh nevada athletic commision that he ahd used steroids during his entire career in Japan and everyone knows TRT exemption was never allowed for former-current steroid abusers like Marquardt. The system is broken and the legit TRT users like Hendersen wil be the ones who prob get screwed because of cheats like marquardt and Sonnen

    • Chris says:

      Totally agree. If i remember correctly Bonnar was talking shit abut TRT and he was caught using something.

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Yeah Bonnar got busted using an ILLEGAL steroid like Winstrol- Stanozol. Bonnar is one of the last fighters that should betalking shit about steroids. At least TRT comes from a doctor. Bonnar got his JUICE from blackmarket or same place Carwin gets all his. So funny how Carwin by just not saying anything was forgiven by media-fans for having alaundry list of steroids delivred to his house from a BLACK MARKET Pharmacy that was under investigation by the Feds and later shut down and the Federal proscecuter read the list of steroids and the amounts that were delivered to Carwin at his residence and signed for by him. The feds said it was enough steroids for 5 years for 5 men. Gee maybe he was supplying all of Grudge, Marquardrt and everyone else tehre or Carwin just hada big monkey for the JUICE. I can tell just by looking at carwins face and skull that he has used massive amounts of steroids in his life and i mean massive prob more than anyone in MMA besides maybe Brock or Barnet or Marquardt

      Funny how Nate “The CHEAT” Marquardt got tapped by Almeida here in Japan then Marquardt punched Almeida after the fight due to Roid Rage, then got soccer kicked in the face by Renzo lol

  3. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Has Randy ever come out and said he officially used TRT? It’s generally assumed.

  4. google says:

    trt should be banned plain and simple.
    its not natural and its a performance enhancer.
    If you got low testosterone TOUGH SHIT.

    • Shawn says:

      Lol! Say that again when your testosterone level drops. Its one thing when you are TRTs because your level is lower than it should be and your doctor recommends TRT for a healthier life. But its another when you really don’t need it, but want to boost yourself for performance in a sports activity to gain an advantage.

      • Turkeykneck fun chav says:

        when you are under 40 and your test drops so low that you need to supplement it then its because you have been juicing and youve lost the natural ability to create your own.

        basically theres no reason to use it.

        im not even happy with henderson using it as he makes himself 6 men instead of 1

  5. Pijan says:

    It should be banned. If you can’t naturally compete like most of the other competition, then you don’t need to be competing at all. If you’re too old to naturally produce the normal amount of testosterone, then it’s time to hang up the gloves. You can cheat your body all you want but it’s going to come back to bite you, and it’s not fair to the fighters that do fight legally and naturally. Maybe Henderson, Barnett, Overeem, and Soneen can start their own company, Cyborg can headline the Women’s division.

  6. GET RID OF TRT says:

    All cheaters should make their own company.

    Ultimate Juicing Championship

    Main Event – Anabolistair “Testostereem” Overroid vs Josh ” The Affliction Killer” Barnett

    Co-Main Event – The Battle of The TUJ Coaches (The Ultimate Juicer) between

    Only in UJC. Ultimate Juicing Championship

  7. Derek Schock says:

    Should be banned, if you have low testosterone then find another income. Is cheating plane and simple!

  8. Rico says:

    It should be banned. Everyone loses testosterone as they age. Its your body’s way of saying its time to hang it up. These fighters who say they need TRT are legally allowed to get their T/E levels up to 6 to 1 in Nevada and 4 to 1 in California. Doesn’t seem fair when they may not have been that high before they started losing testosterone.

  9. Dick Diaz says:

    Overeem’s testosterone= 14:1
    randy: “sometimes they go too far with it.”
    lol no $#!T
