Machida not concerned with Henderson's use of TRT

by Jeff Cain | source:

“Everybody has their own reasons for using it.  I don’t know, I’m not a doctor.  I’m a fighter,” said Machida during the UFC 157 open workouts on Wednesday.  “If the UFC says it’s okay, I think it’s good.”

Henderson has used the therapy since 2007.  Some fighters are hesitant to accept a fight with someone who uses TRT, but Machida isn’t one of them.

“No, it’s okay for me.  No problem,” he said.

Good for him....   I personally think it will not matter either way. He is just that confident in his abilities.   I personally hope Hendo will win because i think he deserves a shot against Jon Jones. Having said that my brain tells me that Machida is going to take this without to much trouble.   I also get a little tired about the whole TRT debat. I really do not understand Dana new found stance on it either. Most fighters in the UFC have used PED in one point of there professional fighting career. Either while competing in the UFC, at another organisation or in college when wrestling.   Its the same a regular drug use. It happens all the time,almost everywhere and most people have partaken in it (considering weed is still on the books as well) once or more then once in their lifes. Yet the whole of society continues to treat it as something so toxic people cannot rationally speak about it.   The hypocracy surrounding the issue of PED and TRT is staggering. So i was franky a little dissapointed that Dana chose to come out against them in such a frustrated manner.

I'm a big Machida fan. That being said, if Dan lands that monster right hand, he can beat anyone. I see Machida winning this though. Possibly handing Dan his first KO loss.
