Kennedy: Belfort's manipulation of TRT 'embarrassing'


Tim Kennedy has always been vocal about his opinion on the subject of TRT. He is against athletes being allowed to use it and to him it's embarassing to be part of a sport that allows it:

He doesn’t have an exemption because he failed an anabolic steroid test, so the athletic commissions won’t give him a TUE because he failed a previous test. That’s why he medically needs it, because he used anabolic steroids, and he got caught for it. Now he needs TRT and nobody will give him that exemption because he used steroids.

It’s embarrassing to be part of the sport and have athletes that are manipulating the system like that. It’s mixed martial arts, and it’s supposed to be about integrity and character and all the things that go with being a martial artist. This is obviously a spit in the face of every martial artist out there. It’s demeaning, it’s embarrassing. It’s not good for the sport, it’s not good for him, it’s not good for the championship, and it’s not good for the promotion. I don’t know, is there anything good about it besides for the cheater? I mean, that’s the only person that benefits from it;

1. For using it and,

2. For using it as a tool or an ace up the sleeve to try to create a situation that he could, yet again, take advantage of and cheat.

Honestly who gives a fuck who's on TRT? I'm getting sick of hearing this shit, day in and day out on the UG. Let the commissions decide if they can fight, and as long as they get the go ahead from the commission, then there's nothing else that needs to be said. No amount of testosterone will make someone a better fighter or martial artist

Tim Kennedy will probably be applying for a TRT exemption himself in a few years.

Okay first part very wrong second part very right.   Some people do have legit low T at young ages, BUT we all know for a 100 percent without a shadow of a doubt fact that vitor has low T from abusing steroids his whole life or at least when he was 17 and on.

Without taking a side, I can say that the only time I can recall seeing (and clicking) a thread about Kennedy is when he's taking about Vitor Belfort.

You can only fit so many characters in a thread title. Some words must be shortened.

TRT shouldn't be given to guys under 36 or them who have caught using steroids in the past.
