He will also continue his doctor-prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. Mir said he regularly does blood work and was told his low testosterone levels posed a health risk. Saying the decision was more about his personal health than his fight career, Mir said he is planning to continue the treatment for the foreseeable future.

"As far as performance in the gym I couldn't tell you the difference," he said. "But as far as the areas of my health where I was starting to have issues, I was depressed -- as far as that goes, that gets too personal -- but I probably will always stay on this, the years of weight cutting have taken their toll, the constant dehydrating makes the body lose all that testoserone, thats medical science fact."

Yeah low test is directly related to major depression and suicidal thoughts. Also what he says about in the gym is true. Phone Post

Pic below is when Mir began trying to go above 265 pounds and this is from the Kongo fight weigh ins
 

Mir weighs in against JDS. After the carwin fight he said he was going to cut down and try to be more like Cain with speed

low test can cause depression, but i disagree about not feeling it in the gym....you see/feel that pretty much immediately.

if he wants to use it and can do so legally-fine. but he doesn't need to tip-toe around and act like it's for "health reasons" only....

What about the "medical science fact" of prolonged steroid use causing low test?

In addition to never having to cut weight, he was on the shelf for a few years after his motorcycle accident.

These guys make it sound like doing MMA just burns out your testicles. Funny how no other weight cutting sport has nearly this same epidemic of low test. Just retire if MMA is that damaging to your organs. All these guys seem to blame the "intense" training. Why continue if it is truly screwing up the functioning of your testicles? If something was going to cause you to lose your balls, wouldn't you stop? Unless of course that truly wasn't the cause...

If we're truly worried about the fighter's health, then we should force these low test guys to retire as opposed to subjecting them to this harmful training and weight cutting.

superCalo -    Look I am not one to complain, I think the job done here is fine, however when my favourite Cuban hW mixed martial artist is misquoted I get a bit agitated, underground blog made a entry :

http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/mma.cfm?go=forum.posts&thread=2041225&forum=1&page=1&pc=14 

Mir explains his personnal reasons for TRT use


In the blog entry it quotes Frank Mir as saying

I was depressed -- as far as that goes, that gets too personal -- but I probably will always stay on this, the years of weight cutting have taken their toll, the constant dehydrating makes the body lose all that testoserone, thats medical science fact."  

However when I link to the actual article Frank Mirs statement is:

http://www.mmafighting.com/ufc/2012/8/6/3223916/frank-mir-excited-by-matchup-with-daniel-cormier-explains-trt-usage 

"As far as performance in the gym I couldn't tell you the difference," he said. "But as far as the areas of my health where I was starting to have issues -- as far as that goes, that gets too personal -- but I probably will always stay on this." 

No mention of being depressed, no mention of weight cutting ?
Is underground blog making up statements about Frank being depressed, about medical science fact ?

What is going on here

Great catch, Calo. Unless MMAFighting.com edited the article, Underground Blog has some explaining to do.

He probably uses Viagra for his anxiety as well. And Extenze to promote proper bone health...give me a break, Frank.

One more reason not to cheer for Frank Mir.

TRT is a blight on the sport of MMA.
