Dana White Thinks TRT Is "Great" & "Fair" For Those Who Don't Abuse It | UFC NEWS


“Here’s the thing about TRT. It’s absolutely 100% legal. As sports medicine continues to advance, this is one of those things where every guy’s testosterone level starts to drop as they get older and this is basically sports science now where they can bring it back up to a normal level. And I think it’s great, it’s absolutely fair, it’s legal. The problem is, there are guys who say if this much is good THIS MUCh must be great, so you have guys who are always trying to do more than they’re supposed to do. The big job is policing it, making sure that it’s not being abused, that guys are using it the way it’s supposed to be used.”

    bullshit
    its defying age. you are suppose to lose it as you get older, nature does that intentionally.
    with trt you are prolonging the inevitable and also doing yourself more harm as you are not letting nature take its cause.
    if you are trying to feel fit and young again when you are not, guess what??? you should quit the fight game.
    everyone should retire at some point.

    • Mayor of Deviance says:

      What are you babbling about? Is “Nature’s Course” in the unified rules of MMA? How is defying nature automatically bad for your body? It seems to me it’s (obviously) helping your body be better. This is coming from a guy who still thinks TRT is cheating because there are other ways to get testosterone flowing and that there are other seldom talked about advantages to TRT. But what you have going here telling people they should just never fight again because we’re all supposed to get old and die at 40 is BS– that is not why TRT should not be allowed.

      • ballsackface says:

        he never said die you idiot.
        he said you a re supposed to lose testosterone its a part of getting old.
        if you are not strong enough to fight because you have testosterone depletion due to a natural loss that affects all men then you shouldnt be fighting

        do you know much about trt?

        from the facts i know, it is a synthetic testo reciprocator that eventually like steroids will affect your natural ability to develop it.

        you are fucking with something that shouldnt be fucked with and is why a lot of steroid abusers now need it legally just to be normal as they have damaged the natural reproduction of test.

        so basically dogfart is right, theres no valid reason for using it in this sport. if you cannot manage without it then you shouldnt be doing it. the long term effects of its use are potentially damaging and its cheating your body into thinking its better than it is. not only that but it weakens the bones and as you get older you have hight chance of breakages and osteoporosis

    • ASDF says:

      problem is everyone does abuse it except maybe Hendo

  2. Xaninho says:

    A level of 6:1 is legal, but nowhere near normal or natural.

  3. DMAC says:

    Of course he thinks it great, if these guys can’t juice you won’t see great shows plain and simple. Let’s face it majority of high level athletes are on some sort of PEDs which helps them put on extraordinary performances. It is what it is but to have shit like this aligned with martial arts is a disgrace to all the pioneers that did it natural with hard work and dedication. No I’m not saying roids makes you a great fighter but it sure does speed up the learning process..

  4. jbeamazing says:

    a lot of new fans that do not understand trt’s will call it roids but thats just because your stupid and don’t understand how they test it do some research before you call every fighter a roid head

    • ASDF says:

      Joseph, I honestly don’t know much about this topic from a medical perspective. But, isn’t the general idea that you’re enhancing your testosterone levels, by adding a substance to your body. And, when you add this substance, you elevate your game compared to someone who also have elevated their performance level?

      I think the only real martial artist in the UFC (in this context) is Machida. His understanding of technique, and fundamental basics of martial arts allows him to easily do without. The rest gain a significant advantage in their fight game.

  5. Dee says:

    Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frasier, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, and others didn’t use it or even need it and neither should today’s athletes. It’s cheating bottom line. You can’t be considered the best ever, when you’re scientifically altering the playing field. If you want me to consider you as the best, then you have to show me how good you are as your body ages.

  6. Nick says:

    Anyone else realize it’s sponsored by Trojan and there’s a fine chick doing the interview? Yeah subliminal messages.

  7. Dan Jenkins says:

    I understand that you are allowed 6 to 1 testosterone levels just out of curiosity what is the normal limit and if it significantly lower how do generate those levels naturally eg thru training, diet

  8. ASDF says:

    ASDF your anme and e-mail adrees is being published by bjpenn.com. what a disgrace for a website who publishes everyone e-mail addresses

    yep mine as been published also many times. look at the small blue print on the log in

    OneAll Social Login is a friggen JOKE at best.

    too bad BJ will never know anything about this

  9. stephen riddle says:

    It should be 1 to 1 ratio for trters un natural advantage if a normal dude has to fight a dude with a 6 to 1 ratio than wtf? Its not fair!

  10. Sugar Ponybear says:

    Cheating is cheating, plain and simple. If you can’t hang with the comp. you’re in the wrong sport. If you’re too old to hang with the younger crowd, it’s time to hang up the gloves. If you can’t legitimately compete, you shouldn’t be competing at all. The only reason Dana White is okay with it is cause half his fucking fighters are on it.

  11. JuiceOrNot says:

    I tend to disagree. As medical science advances, humans live longer and longer. It’s just a fact. Why not let people stay younger? TRT isn’t the same as roiding up, and that’s fine with me.

  12. OFFICIAL says:

    Alcohol is LEGAL Cigarrettes are LEGAL but they KILL MILLIONS EVERY YEAR DANA!!!

    If the body NATURALLY loses it then TOUGH, get a NEW job!!!!

    Soon the whole MMA will be JUICING and then the ATTENTION will shift back FULLY to BOXING!!!!!!!!!!

  13. The Truth says:

    Okay, I want all of you to go to google, type in testosterone, and do extensive research before you bash TRT or Hell even try to take a side. Seems like most of you are pissed about a topic you don’t even know anything about. Stfu

  14. rick james bioch says:

    What I don’t understand is if you are taking TRT because you have low Test and the average ratio is 1:1. How the heck is it OK to go from below 1:1 to 6:1??? Unless you like superman or captain america no normal male is going to be 4:1 naturally much less 6:1.

    I would be ok if the ratio allowed to fight is 2:1 but anything higher than that seems to be just taking advantage of the system.
