Fitch: TRT 'is a joke'


TRT is a very polarizing subject in mixed martial arts recently and Jon Fitch is the one who falls on the side vehemently against it:

FHTV: Can you share with us your thoughts on the Pat Healy situation?

Fitch: Man I feel bad for him, I think it’s a bad deal he got. First of all, I do not think that marijuana is in anyway a performance enhancing drug, marijuana itself I see nothing wrong with it if you are a grown man or a grown woman and that’s what you choose to do. That said, I understand that there are rules in place that list as a “banned substance” so they do need to be observed. But at the same time, there are guys, like Nick Diaz who have prescriptions for it, I mean – it is recognized as a legal substance in some states and I think there needs to be a change in the rules for it, especially when you look at this and how they react vs. someone using a TRT prescription.

FHTV: What do you think about TRT?

Fitch: HA! TRT? It is a joke. This is devised to let guys who have used steroids in their past re-boost their testosterone since they abused their bodies when they were younger. The guys using it, the ones who use the excuse of, ‘I am too old to compete with young guys” – that’s bulls***! I am 35 years old, and I promise, I would and will bet money that my testosterone levels are just as good as a younger fighter. You know why? Because I have not wrecked my body with steroids, never used ANY type of PED and train healthy and properly to compete.

Kinda moot considering he'd probably feel the same about the TRT "patients" yet he just became a lot more like any of them
