When does this stop? If I get in a cart accident and need a metal rod inserted in my arm, am I allowed to get in the cage and club people with my arm???

Yes you do, plenty of fighters have metal rods in their bones. A lot of guys break arms and legs in this sport, do you think Cory Hill and Frank Mir have an unfair advantage?

I believe Sylvia has one courtesy of Frank Mir

It just gives him an excuse if he loses, I don't think he will lose but I can see it now, "The TRT K.O'd me" lol Besides the levels are monitored to make sure you don't OD on it like my man "Nate The Great". Just shut up and fight

The anti-TRT stance is a valid one, but why does Jones have to frame it as anything more than an unfair competitive advantage? His answer would be so much more agreeable if he said nothing but "when you're looking to stay in the game, I don't I think you should take a drug that gives you the strength of a 30-year-old again" instead of focusing on the money that forty-year-olds should not be making in sports and then referring to people unlike himself as "normal people."

For once, I actually kinda agree with Jon Jones.

I don't see how TRT is legitimate for use.

Some people naturally have lower levels of testosterone even at a young age. If I can prove that my opponent has more testosterone (we're both in our twenties) does that mean I can use drugs to make up the difference?

Aging is natural. TRT is not.

I would think a DUI and crashing a Bentley would be much worse than TRT, but hey what do I know.

KenFlo tweeted something about the main event for an upcoming card being ruined, and the rumor mill says it's Hendo.

Please don't be true, please don't be true, please don't be true!!!!

I'm not going to post it in it's own thread until confirmed if it is, in fact, true.

I've been checking around and there are all kinds of wild rumors flying like Dan tested with high levels, and that it may be Jones that's hurt, but absolutely no confirmation at this point. Lots of speculation out there right now though.
