I feel bad for Bisping now 3rd loss to a TRT patient.
Testosterone is produced by the body and you can have deficiencies much like you can with any hormone or nutrient.
Dianabol, Winstrol, Anadrol or Stanzolol are not naturally occuring.
Medical treatment from an endocrinologist is several shades of grey different than injecting steroids.
The problem is not those who get medical treatment, it is those who will abuse it by not registering with an endocrinologist or the commission.
People like Alistair Overeem.
The testing system is deficient as I have said for years. Organizations won't foot the bill because:
A.) They don't really care - it doesn't affect them, it affects the career of the fighter.
B.) It would take away from the bottomline.
With the commissions, it's only B.
Judging is in the same position as better substance testing/rules and new rules which would benefit the sport.
The money is not in a solution, it is in spreading and infecting the global populous with this burgeoning sport.
