Bellator Boss Happy With TRT Ban

March 1, 2014 9:55 am by BJPENN.COM News

“I’ve had the same opinion on [TRT], and the same stance on it since the first time I asked the question. I just never felt that the controls were tight enough to be able to allow it to occur. When guys use it it’s an unfair advantage. If you’re going to equalize the playing field, the best way to equalize the playing field is to eliminate it in totality. I’ve never wavered on that…it is an unfair advantage when misused. Anybody who’s in this sport recognizes that people misuse it… It’s unfortunate for guys who have a legitimate physical defect. But they’re on the side of doing it right for everybody, and the vast majority are going to be able fight clean now and not have to fight against somebody who isn’t [on TRT]. So I think it’s a good move.”

During his Bellator 110 post-fight media scrum, Bellator boss Bjorn Rebney, touched on Nevada’s recent ban of TRT.

The ban, according to his account, will not effect his roster at all since he says none of his contracted fighters have used the controversial therapy.
