White: TRT ruins good fighters, it has to go away

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

UFC president Dana White recently appeared on the UK's BT Sports, and discussed the resigning of Gil Melendez, SuperFights, what's next for Ronda Rousey (it's not Cris Cyborg), the use of Testosterone Replacement Therapy in mixed martial arts.

“When you really break it down and look at it – it's science,” said White. “As you get older, your testosterone starts to get lower, science has figured out a way to get it back up to even. 

 

“But like in all things when money is involved, people will find ways to cheat. And even though this thing is legal, people have found out a way to cheat on it. So it has to go away.”

 

“It ruins good fighters. Once you get on this stuff, or any type of steroid, you can't get off it. You have to continue to use it. Because once you start using it, your body stops producing it like it did before. So it's not good for you.”
