Rampage non-apologetic for TRT use

source: sherdog.com

Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson has recently been in some heat for comments he made about MMA athletes and their use of testosterone replacement therapy. Recently Jackson was a guest on the Savage Radio show, defending his position on his use of TRT:

“If I was losing my hair and the doctor told me, ‘You need a hair transplant,’ I’m going to do a hair transplant,” Jackson told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Savage Dog Show.” “If I get my tooth knocked out like Randy Couture did against [Lyoto] Machida, I’m going to get a new tooth put in my mouth. If my testosterone gets low and the doctor tells me, ‘You need to raise your levels back up to where you used to be when you were 25,’ and you’re fighting these young folks, I’m going to go do it.”

Jackson had sought medical attention prior to the Bader bout due to a knee injury. He was prescribed testosterone, which he said helped his knee and had other positive effects.

“Before I started doing testosterone, I was thinking about retiring,” Jackson said. “Not because I was upset with the UFC as much as because my body’s all beat up. I wasn’t as motivated to train. That’s why, because my testosterone levels were really low. I think the doctor said I probably depleted them training really hard and fighting.”

“I feel like it’s a medical condition,” Jackson said. “I have to say this. I have to say this and maybe some people will get mad, but I feel like whoever’s getting mad at me for healing myself up, [there’s] an old saying, a slave mentality, like, ‘Oh, how dare you make yourself 100 percent to be fighting out there.’ That’s what comes to my mind.”

Company, no one is all over him for TRT. He's pretending they are to get a gimmick--the slave thing. Don't fall for it.The reason Bader went on his head is because Rampage couldn't come anywhere near to slamming him.

Quinton very nearly slammed Forrest Griffin who is huge...Forrest just deended it well. Bader is a smaller LHW.

Testosterone (not steroids) is a natural substance in the body. Like taking Vitamin c or B-complex.IMO we should define the difference between steroids and testosterone.
