Fertitta: TRT abuse has to come to an end

source: sports.yahoo.com

(1:25 mark)

"What you can't have are guys abusing this to the point where their levels are at some super-human factor, giving them this performance enhancement," said UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta on ESPNRadio1100's "The MMA Insiders" show.

"There's got to be more random testing. It seems like, possibly, guys are getting outside the boundary while they're training and managing it down where once the week of the fight [has arrived], they take the test and they're fine. I think that there needs to be this random testing to make sure no one's abusing it."

"I think we came off with a pretty strong response to Nate Marquardt, and kind how we feel about TRT. Our stance is we're working with commissions to say 'look this whole thing has got to come to an end.' If you are going to have some kind of therapy, not only can you not be at the top end of the range, you can't be anywhere near performance enhancing."

LOL @ the guys like Henderson who use TRT. He said he takes some testo because his level is low and he feels tired. He should stop to party and drink alcohol before to use TRT,maybe he'd feel better.

By the looks of Fertitta's arms I think I have to disagree.

I'm sure someone will explain this, but I don't understand: Lorenzo says "I think we made a very strong statement with what we did with Nate Marquardt", but Sonnen is still under contract?  What is the difference?  Again, I'm sure there is a reason, I just haven't read it.
