People "slam" Belfort, because he has a history of getting popped for abusing PEDs.
Marquardt also popped hot earlier in his career, and then flip-flopped and decided he didn't need TRT.
Todd Duffee is young and built like a greek god, so PED abuse is heavily suspected.
The reason why Hendo gets a "pass" is a combination of being older, never having failed a drug test, and he doesn't physically appear to be abusing the treatment.
I'm not talking about fighters who have been popped for roids or not disclosing that they used TRT then getting popped. I'm talking about fighters that have come out saying that they have legally used it.
Fighters that have been popped are in their own catagory, and that's being a cheater. If a fighter is using TRT legally, then they're being subjected to the same testing standards as Hendo yet they get slammed and Hendo does not.
Don't think I'm hating on Hendo because I'm not, I've always been a fan. It just seems that because he's such a huge fan favorite he seems to get a pass.
