VIDEO | Tito Ortiz Goes On Rant About TRT In MMA – Unhappy With Griffin’s Use | UFC NEWS

“[MMA] has come so far in such a short amount of time, I hope this doesn’t happen to become an epidemic. What type of message are we trying to send to the youths that are watching our sport? This is the same thing we’ve been trying to stop from happening. And all of a sudden, in the last six months it’s legal to do? You’re allowed to be 6 times over average? Since day one that I’ve been competing in the last 15 years, I’ve always been on an even field. Now other fighters can be on a higher [field], 6 times more than the average person. But I think we’re sending the wrong message to the fans and the kids that want to be UFC fighters or Mixed Martial Arts fighters.”

Tito Ortiz is not pleased that Forrest Griffin was using TRT before “The People’s Champ’s” retirement fight. Here he lets Inside MMA know how he feels about the upward trend in TRT use.

    • bunkylomax says:

      piss on you guy! TRT use is garbage example..Nate M. last year he basically said he couldn’t function without it and he needed it to compete..all of sudden he says he’s done using TRT and feels great and is in best shape of his life and continues to ignore questions regarding his past use..hmm? ice personally have used testosterone boosters and you can do so much more..it’s cheating

    • Xaninho says:

      wtf? you think you’re R. Kelly or something?

  5. Nando says:

    Agreed tito

  6. renodenada says:

    two words. frank shamrock

  7. chud says:

    100% agree with Tito.
    and i can’t believe i just said that.

  8. A.James says:

    Tito got robbed that last fight. Even Forrest thought he won that’s why he left the cage.

  9. Asuza says:

    I agree. Ban TRT now Dana!!

    • Anomie says:

      For what has to be the 100th time….

      It is not up to Dana or Zuffa to ban TRT use.
      The athletic commissions who sanction the fight are also the ones that sanction the TRT.

      Dana is on record saying that if it were up to him, it would be banned.

    • Yeas says:

      Dana can’t ban it. The Athletic Commissions licenses the fighters, not the UFC. The UFC would have a hard time holding themselves to a ‘higher’ standard than the ACs, and I don’t believe they would even be allowed to considering the regulations the UFC has placed on them.

      I agree with what you’re saying but its not really in the UFCs hands.

      • Mayor of Deviance says:

        Well… I mean they could just SAY that it’s not up to them. The higher-ups of the UFC probably could do something creative about it, but this way they can appease everyone: those in favor of TRT get to use it, but they save face with those against. Brilliant PR work.

  10. TRT rulezzzz says:

    Is it just me or does that still of tito from the video look like he needs a giant penis inserted into his mouth? Well that is all also if forrest was approved and came out clean then what is wrong with the fight? forrest still won if anything tito should be mad he left it in the hands of the judges. Lay and pray tit-o, lay and pray.

  11. Gefco says:

    He’s saying this shit now cause he lost if he won he wouldn’t be say this.I swear the fight was going in slow motion that’s how old and slow they were.they need to fight on last time Tito go get trt and Forrest go get it and let’s fight again or tito let’s fight chuck one last time I wanna see u get ur ass kick

  12. hawaiipete says:

    The sport needs to be cleaned up in its entirety regarding TRT. If youre a fighter and you cant seem to muster up the energy when you wake up in the morning to train or fight, its time to find a new profession.

  13. noirz says:

    Um, what is TRT? A sentence or two defining it might be very helpful.

  14. MMApersonalJesus says:

    I agree with Tito with this one. 6X the avg person is crazy. TRT is cheating, it gives an advantage to a fighter and at that level with their skill sets so close, it’s an unfair advantage
