Chael Sonnen | Testosterone Replacement (TRT) Is Good For You

March 16, 2012 9:40 am by Pedro Carrasco

“There’s two things there. Hold on. If you’re gonna associate the guy with TRT, make sure you also associate the fact that it’s legal and it’s not banned. Second thing with TRT is people are really getting confused. They look at TRT and they’re missing the stuff that really is good. TRT is eight, nine or ten on the list of things they could take to help their careers. Secondly, any time a person says ‘performance enhancer,’ stop talking to them, because they don’t have the intellect to debate with you.”

“I wanna make this point. I would never take anything if I didn’t think it would help my performance. That’s what medicine is in 21st Century America. Imagine if you go to the doctor and say, ‘Doc, I’m feeling great. You got anything that can bring me down a notch?’ That’s malpractice. It’s all meant to help your performance.”

“No, no, no. [I did not cheat against Anderson Silva] Absolutely not. Not only did I not take more of it, I was never even accused of that. Josh Gross, who’s incompetent beyond measure, went on ESPN and said that I did, so it became my reality and I went with it. I was never even accused of that. Is it legal or is it not legal? If a person’s taking a legal substance, that’s the end of the conversation. You’re sounding a lot like Josh Gross.”

If you missed it, Chael Sonnen was a guest on last night’s SPIKE TV “MMA Uncensored” and he discussed a lot of topics.

The interviewer got Chael on the subject of TRT when questioning him about the recently made public use of the treatment by Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

Sonnen, who is an admitted TRT patient, had no problem discussing the topic, even supporting the controversial therapy many aging athletes are now taking.
