    Worst part about all of this: they played way too big of a filler fight and my dvr only recorded the beginning of this epic fight, so I haven't even seen the whole fight.

    Anyway, sux for Bigfoot if he didn't intentionally cheat. But rules are rules.

    Also, TRT seems to be a grey area. It isn't steroids but it can be used to cheat. So if someone wants to rip someone for abusing TRT they should probably call them a cheater and not a roider. I could be wrong though.

    I thought bigfoot had a condition that caused his body to produce too much Testosterone, which was why he failed a previous drug test. If that is the case, why the hell would he need TRT?

    After Silva made such a big fuss over Overeem's failed tests I am very suprised by all of this.

    with all this finger pointing, I hope someone doesn't take one in the eye. Good thing Koscheck isn't involved.

    In short, acromegaly causes a marked increase in growth hormone, not testosterone; however, the medication used to treat it impacts hormonal levels across the board, including testosterone. Thus, he needs TRT to balance the impact the meds have and bring him back up to normal testosterone levels.

    AO doesn't have acromegaly, does he?

    Wait... what?
    So the UFC doctor is saying he only played middle man to Silva's regular doctor... who was the one that suggested he increase his dosage... so... that makes him to be aware of the whole situation, doesn't it?
    wtf?

    anything to do with TRT is cheatingsteroids unless chael sonnen does it and then plagiarizes a joke right after.
    and it's not plagiarism if sonnen does it. He allowed those people to test his jokes on a lesser audience for him. They should be be grateful.

    Tannure isn't affiliated with the UFC. He's affiliated with the Brazilian AC.
