All time great Dan Henderson appeared recently on the Great MMA Debate podcast and talked TRT. Saturday night at Shogun vs. Henderson 2" class="Newslink">UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Henderson 2, Henderson fights Shogun Rua in the first fight of his six-fight contract with the UFC. Hendo has been issued one, final Therapeutic Use Exemption for Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Hendo said he doesn't think the TRT ban will fix the real problem - the use of illegal PEDs.
"I'm sure there's a lot of guys who need [TRT] and a lot of guys who were on it that didn't, but I have no idea," said Henderson. "The biggest issue is that it didn't solve any problems by taking it away. It doesn't really address the real issue of tackling the problem of performance enhancing drugs.
"I think if they really wanted to make a statement they should have done more drug testing and implemented no advance notice in drug testing. Show up at guys' houses at odd hours and make them give blood and pee in a cup."
After Saturday's fight there is no TRT, and it sounds like there is no certainty there will be Dan Henderson.
"I'm pretty much going to get this fight handled and then worry about the changes later," said Henderson/ "That's my mindset and I don't need to make any decisions now. I'm going to have to do some research and see what's out there."
