Featherweight champion Jose Aldo has been generally soft spoken in the media, but today commented on the hot button topic of TRT, even tossing a heavy accusation at a former UFC world champion:
"I donít see the problem with using TRT," Aldo told Tatame. "Everybody uses [steroids], from the champion to the newcomer. I believe we [from Nova Uniao] are the only ones that donít do that, because Andre (Pederneiras) was always against steroids. I think itís wrong to criticize someone who came forward and said they take TRT."
"Americans always used that," he said. "Randy Couture fought until he was 50, and you say he was clean? If the doctors prescribe you and youíre on the limits, OK, I see no problem. If I need that one day, I will use TRT too."
