Dana White ?absolutely 100 percent against TRT,' says usage is ?cheating' - MMAmania.com
MMA Opinion was on the scene for White's rant: |
"TRT has become a way for people to cheat. If this is what your normal level should be and then you have guys training at huge levels (of testosterone) for their whole camp then tapering down to get to normal levels before the fucking fight, that's cheating, and I don't like it anymore."
"There are plenty of guys in the UFC that are naturally gifted and talented fighters. If you're testosterone levels are too low then you're probably too old to be fighting, stop fighting! "
"We can test everybody. I'm telling you right now, if you are using testosterone replacement therapy, get ready motherfuckers because we're going to test the shit out of you."
That's a lot to digest, but White wasn't done. When asked what has changes his opinion on TRT in what seems like overnight, the UFC's head honcho went on another curse-filled tirade.
"Some things recently have led me to believe that people are fucking cheaters, people are taking good things and turning it into a bad thing and if you want to play those games then guess what, we'll play!"
"There's so much shit out there. Right now there's banned substances and we follow the regulations and we're going after the banned substances, TRT was never one of them and they would be tested leading up to the fight to make sure the levels are good. If you're on TRT now, you're going to wish you weren't. We're going to test the living shit out of you."
"You have guys that go in there 100% natural with his talent and natural ability, against someone on TRT, basically someone that's on steroids. I'm absolutely 100 percent against TRT and now I'm going to start fighting it 100 percent with the athletic commissions and I want nothing to do with it."
*Sounds like Dana is just as pissed as Bisping over Vitor spoiling the big pay day.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
