Less than a year after obtaining permission to use medically prescribed testosterone, Shane Roller decided that changes to his diet and training are, for now, a better choice while continuing his fight career.

"I'm training a little bit smarter," he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I'm ready to go compete, but I'm getting my body ready in a different way."

The endocrinologist who helped Roller get permission believes he needs the hormone to compete. Roller, though, has serious misgivings about its use.

He recently informed Nevada State Athletic Commission officials that he won't maintain the therapeutic-use exemption he obtained from them in June 2011, less than a month before he fought Melvin Guillard at UFC 132.

"I see what happens with the guys who have done it and abused it, and I don't want to be in that category at all," he said.

"If you're taking it right and doing what your doctor is saying, they should never be prescribing to where you'll test out of range," Roller said. "There are guys that are doing that. There are guys taking regular steroids, which is the same thing. They're taking regular steroids and cheating, so people are going to get caught that are doing it."
