Dana White: 'TRT has become a way for people to cheat'


At a fan Q&A ahead of  Saturday's UFC on FUEL 7, UFC president Dana White took a forceful stand against testosterone replacement therapy.

“TRT has become a way for people to cheat," said White. "If this is what your normal level should be and then you have guys training at huge levels for their whole camp then tapering down to get to normal levels before the fucking fight, that’s cheating, and I don’t like it anymore.”

“There are plenty of guys in the UFC that are naturally gifted and talented fighters. If you’re testosterone levels are too low then you’re probably too old to be fighting, stop fighting! “

“We can test everybody. I’m telling you right now, if you are using testosterone replacement therapy, get ready motherf@$%ers because we’re going to test the s#!* out of you.”

“Some things recently have lead me to believe that people are f@$%ing cheaters, people are taking good things and turning it into a bad thing and if you want to play those games then guess what, we’ll play!”

“There’s so much s#!* out there. Right now there’s banned substances and and we follow the regulations and we’re going after the banned substances, TRT was never one of them and they would be tested leading up to the fight to make sure the levels are good. If you’re on TRT now, you’re going to wish you weren’t. We’re going to test the living shit out of you.”

“You have guys that go in there 100% natural with his talent and natural ability, against someone on TRT, basically someone thats on steroids. I’m absolutely 100% against TRT and now I’m going to start fighting it 100 percent with the athletic commissions and I want nothing to do with it.”

thanks to their TRT debauacle and the worship of juicers within its ranks, ufc is prettyy much known as the circus of the nutless. it will become even moreso with chickbrawls taken over. sales of ghetto-brawls DVDs will be up if the trend continues.in before zuffa buys the competetion, AND the jerry springer show.

cool man, I also get annoyed when I see that people are still confusing T levels with T/E ratio. I did ask a question and stand corrected on eugonad and I'm sorry for calling you a retard based on my own retardation.Now, I'm not trying to be a dick, If you have a legit background in this stuff I'd just ask questions directly to you but if you're like me just fishing info off the intranets I'll bust your balls a bit more because it seems like there's conflicting studies regarding Epitest levels?^^^is there a consensus about this?

I'll be honest in that if I would have realized that you are an 01 member (I almost always log on from the app, so I don't see it), I would not have been as much of an ass about it. I assumed that you were one of the typical noob tards because of what you said. The fact of the matter though is that people totally talk out of their ass on here, especially regarding this subject. It wouldn't even matter except that one idiot says something like "guys on TRT are allowed to have 6 x the normal amount of testosterone and it's not fair", then 50 random idiots repeat it like they are experts. That shit has become so common on here that it has become sickening. Because of this I'm automatically in uber-annoyed mode when I look at these TRT threads. Also, I'll never understand why people on here are so afraid of asking questions, educating themselves before they "speak", or simply saying "I misunderstood, or was misinformed". I know quite a bit about this stuff, but am a total noob in comparison to many of the people on the bodybuilding/fitness/steroid forums.

no I started out asking a question:"or maybe you could just tapper down TRT"and you've been a condescending jackass throughout when the fact of the matter is you don't know jack shit about it and can't read. You may drop the act now.

Also by your moronic logic, any fighter that has naturally high T levels, thus naturally high epiT levels, could just do steroid cycles whenever they wanted as they would never have to worry about getting busted since their epiT would never go down. Yeah that would make perfect sense!

"eugonadal men", you fucking retard. Do you know what that means? It means no testicles, thus no testicular production of either testosterone or epitestosterone. lol @ trying to apply that those results to healthy males.You also seem to think that "production" and "excretion" mean the exact same thing, so I recommend that you stay away from scientific literature before you hurt yourself.

So now you go into stubborn UG bad ass pissing match mode because you just got owned. Your problem is that you have no clue what you're reading. You just did a google search to try and back up your claims, and posted whatever crap you could find. I posted the science and studies to back up what I said and you are too incompetent to read and understand it."Doses equivalent to 18, 72 and 216 mg testosterone (T)/week were administered for 6 months to eugonadal men.""The lowest dosage T administration did not affect the androgen profile, while higher dosages generally increased urinary excretions of T metabolites (TG, T sulfate, glucuronides of androsterone, etiocholanolone, 5alpha- and 5beta-androstane-3alpha,17beta-diol) and decreased excretions of conjugates of epitestosterone (ET) and its precursor androgen 5-androstene-3beta,17alpha-diol."72mg of test a week is a LOW TRT dose! For some the 216mg is still a TRT dose! Most people are around 100ish MG for a TRT dose.Moron.

as opposed to a French institute? I'll go with an Eastern Block country when it comes to roiding, but it's not like you have a clue about either institute anyway.still no source for TRT alone will kill production of natural test AND epitest you're full of shit
