TRT Ban Forces ‘Bigfoot’ Into Pituitary Gland Surgery


“I will have to do the surgery again after my next fight, and then I will be cleared to train again in four or six weeks. I will have to do the surgery again since I can’t take testosterone (replacement therapy). Some use it for ego, but (the TRT ban) is a problem for those who really need it. That was the first time I used it. I always fought without TRT and I will continue.”

In a recent interview with The MMA Hour, Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva discussed his need for surgery following the ban on TRT.

Fair?
