I fail to see a double standard.
I'm no expert, but as far as I know, TRT is basically intended for older men (40+, as far as I understand). I understand other rare circumstances come up, but when a 24 year old who is in much better shape than most of the world is cleared to use TRT, red flags come up.
Also, Hendo maintains that he keeps himself tested and is always within accepted levels of testosterone in his system. Take that for what it's worth, but he has never been popped for elevated levels, and he is old.
I'm a sports purist and would prefer it be banned altogether in competition, but it isn't. And hendo's case is the most acceptable I've seen.
On topic: good job Dana. You've hyped this fight. Now if anyone believed a goddam word you said this might have an impact.
