Jose Aldo Says He’s Fine With UFC Fighters Using TRT

0

UFC Featherweight Champion and number two ranked Pound-For-Pound star Jose Aldo recently spoke out about the controversial topic of testosterone replacement therapy, better known as “TRT.”

In a recent interview with Brazilian publication TATAME, Aldo said, “I would fight someone who is doing TRT, who isn’t or who is using other drugs. It doesn’t matter to me anyway. The same punch I’ll throw in one of these guys, I’ll throw in another of them. If it’s allowed or not, I don’t care because I’ll still train and fight as I’m doing right now.”

Aldo continued, “I see no problem (with the drug). A lot of people use something and hide, then they criticize people who use. I think these are a bunch of (expletives) trying to find an excuse, fearing to lose fights against those doing a good job.”

The UFC champ concluded, “At one point, you have an age that makes it necessary and I see no problem with TRT.”

Jose Aldo defends his UFC Featherweight Championship against Chad Mendes at UFC 179 on October 25, 2014 at the Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
