 I don't buy that argument. i appreceiate where you are coming from however MMA is regulated for a reason. To take controversy off of the UFC and to market it as a legitimate spot. Dana doesn't like the judging. He could create his own judging system, get his own refs, create his own rules, but he loses credibility that way. You cannot except some of the AC rules and not others. You are right they could ban it but that is not the best course of action. He needs to go through the ACs

Agreed. We cannot blanket TRT users into one group though. I'm sure there are many different circumstances.

Dana makes a good point about the boxing pay disparity. Cool to see him be frank about the decision in getting Brock in the UFC.

This. I think it's ridiculous that many who are vehemently opposed to TRT are also avid old school fans and undoubtedly admire guys like Wanderlei Silva from his Pride days. The cognitive dissonance is that all of those guys, and especially Wanderlei, were blatantly juicing their fucking balls off but because there was no commission to catch them the fans don't mention it. It all seems to disingenuous to me. Yea, some of the guys use TRT to recover better and train harder. Big fucking deal. Most of the guys on it are ~35. I couldn't imagine competing in this sport at that age and it doesn't bother me that they take a mild drug to help them. Let all of the guys take it legally... we know most of them are on stuff anyway.

GSP Silva is very mucht he same thing. Manny may NOW fight in the same division, but they are not the same "size". Mayweather is the bigger fo the two. In boxing the divisions are MUCH closer as well. They are not "two divs" apart, they are one division apart. To boot, GSP is a MONSTER weight cutter compared to Anderson. He is 192/3 in the cage in his last 3 fights. Anderson is 200-203 according to his camp. If GSP was fighting above 170 he would also be able to EASILY add more weight by not having to cut as much. If Anderson was below 185 he would be lighter. If they did a catch weight of 178 there would be probably no more than 5 pounds difference in the cage. GSP said it was a goal of his to be the MW champion back then too. They could have made the fight at 170 right after 112, but Dana found a way out fo his promise because he was all mad at Anderson.

 He pretty much brushed it off just like that though. He said that the governement allows it, and that it is up to the government. He said he would personally get rid of it, but I don't believe that at all. If Dana was TRULY opposed to TRT he could very easily jsut BAN IT in the UFC. Who cares if other promotions still allow it, and if the commissions in certain states allow it. If he TRULY had an issue with it they would ban it.

 Yes, yes he did. I don't think he meant to, but the truth came out of his mouth either way.

What fight in the UFC where the guys are IN THE SAME DIV and arent friends did Dana not make?Manny/Floyd fight in the same div, they are close in weight, they arent friends yet the fight cant be made.What fight are you talking about that couldnt be made? GSP/Silva? two divs 15 pounds apart, not even close to the same thing.Brock/Fedor, we all know why that didnt happen and it wasnt because Dana didnt try to make it. Silva/Jones has only just started to get talked about, thats actually a mega fight I think they could make down the line if the money is right.But Manny/Floyd are two guys who fight in the same div, arent friends, hate each other and the money to be made on that fight for the fighters and the promoters is so insane its embarrassing boxing couldnt make that.
