Fitch Would Consider TRT If Fighting At Age 40


Former UFC fighter, turned WSOF headliner, Jon Fitch told the media recently that he would consider using Testosterone Replacement Therapy if he reaches age 40 with a desire to still compete.

This is a 180 stance from his traditional motto of ‘natural only’ however the context in which he made this proclamation is such that he can justify the use, if everyone in the sport is still using.

Here is what he said.

“I feel like I’ve got a lot of good years left in me. I’ve never abused any drugs. I don’t even know how to use EPO. I’m feeling good. I made it this far naturally. If I make it to 40 and everyone’s still using TRT then, maybe I’ll do it so I can stick around another five years and feed my family.”
