Fighters Only, web monkey
 
FO: As you mentioned Overeem, let’s touch on the scandal that is presently threatening to engulf him. He failed a urine test administered in March and now the theory is that he will be claiming he was undergoing Testosterone Replacement Therapy, explaining his elevated levels. What do you think of all these fighters that are suddenly claiming to be testosterone-deficient?

You know I don’t know much about it at all. I have been fighting for 15 years and there have been trainers that tried to push that on me and I’ve said that if I have to do that kind of stuff, I am done with the sport, I wont compete any more because I want to be a natural athlete.

And I have - for fifteen years I’ve competed and taken my drug tests, random drug tests, and passed everything because I am a true athletle. A lot of these guys are taking these supplements to make themselves more impressive or whatever, to become the fighters they want to be.

That’s their choice - my recommendation is don’t do it. If its against the law or against the sport, don’t do it and if you do have to do it, don’t fight anymore. That’s just my take on it… I will leave it there, I wont go into it any further.

Tito is correct. Not everyone in the world should be entitled to fight. If you have this rare hormonal condition that creates a huge risk of steroid abuse then you shouldnt fight. Phone Post

Agreed! if you need a crutch to participate in the sport then perhaps your body is telling you its time to give it up. I don't care if it doesn't make you "super human or un naturally strong" I don't care if you need it to heal, I'd rather my favorite athletes lost naturally due to their bodies wearing down under the sport then to see them win because someone in a lab helped them out.

Thread title should actually be: Tito: "If you need TRT, you need to stop fighting. Please don't notice my head size has gotten bigger over the years."

 I wasn't going to say anything, but looking at his head around the time he fought Metzger, and looking at it now...

It's called science. Maybe we shouldn't allow fighters to use the latest and greatest nutritional facts because it might give them an advantage over the less advised natural fighters.

If you go ahead and see by the fight, what you saw, in the ring......You'll see the TRT has no place in MMA.

And nobody can descript that better than Tito Ortiz.

THIS!!!

This man has no shame and always went into a fight saying the old tito is back and he's 100% healthy.

If you need Surgery on your vertebra you should stop fighting. I mean it's unfair to all the other fighters not getting any. Phone Post

While I agree with Tito, I think he is lying about never using roids. His body type completely changed when the UFC started testing. Look at his body type against Ken vs. his body type against Chack.

weird to here him saying it, not because I think he used but just for him to be talking about the subject.
He has beaten some roid monkies and lost to some TRT'd fighters so I guess he has a leg to stand on. As for his head size, he had a melon on him since he was young. Doubt he took HGH simply because the amounts he would have needed to increase cranium size would likely cause growth of other organs and parts (take in mind I dont have the science to back that up) but its just that his head looks big.

Tito has done a great job of passing the tests over the years. He's very good at that.
