Forrest: TRT helps you do your job better


UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin appeared recently on WHOA TV, and in his usual contrarian fashion, advocated for TRT.

Griffin was issued a Therapeutic Use Exemption for Testosterone Replacement Therapy ahead of his fight with Tito Ortiz at UFC 148.

The interview began with the now retired Griffin discussing what he is doing with his new life.

"I bought a mountain bike," replied Griffin. "That's the best I've come up with."

The interview eventually turned to TRT, which has recently been banned wholesale by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

"Here's what I don't understand," said Griffin. "What's wrong with wanting to be better at your job? If I had a dream… you only get one life. That's it. This life, I didn't mean to have this s----y body with s----y genetics. I wanted a better one. I'll be honest. I wanted to be much bigger, stronger and faster. If I could do that. 

"It's not like… people think TRT is for lazy people. No, it's just you're just trying to improve yourself. All the drugs in the world ain't gonna turn a Chihuahua into a Pitbull, you know? I could do all the TRT in the world and Jones would beat my ass every day, all day, but, you know, I could be the best me.

"So I don't think people get it, so f--- 'em. They take drugs just to stay happy. You take Prozac? Quit taking Prozac. No drugs but antibiotics. Don't take drugs to improve yourself. Your kids take Ritalin? No! Bulls---! They're doing that to cheat in school."

"You know what [Vitor Belfort's] problem is? He looks like he might be doing some stunt double work for Incredible Hulk - 'INEEDTRTACKKK'"

Forrest is extremely modest.  Before he was left with an unusable right shoulder, a misfigured broken arm, metal in each hand, a knee with 5-6 holes from extensive surgery, not to mention the other things like his back and other aches and injuries, Forrest was an amazing athlete. Talk to the guys he played basketball to the guys he played football against...he did gymnastics as a kid and wasn't allowed to eat junk food.  Forrest could have played other pro sports. The guy beat Rampage, Shogun, Tito, Franklin, etc.  Watch the first round of his fight vs Horn...he'd been training 2.5 years....and Horn was on his waht, 50th or more fight?  Horn was fighting Big Nog before Forrest ever got on a mat.

You realize that national olympic teams have a nation of doctors behind them to make sure they don't get caught, right?

Forrest is the most famous Tomato Can in sport. Of course drugs make you better ! Look at Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez. look at Cris Cyborg and Arnold Swarzennegger. Yeah open it up. Allow the steroids. People are going to continue doing them anyway.

well Forrest is correct, his genetics were pretty bad for a sport like mma..Forrest was very slow and he wasnt that strong physically..he just trained his ass off, had good cardio and was tough as hell..all of that cannot make up for a big deficit in speed and power though..u dont realize the amount of training Forrest put in and he still looked lethargic in many of his fights..
