"I don’t see the problem with using TRT," Aldo told Tatame. "Everybody uses [steroids], from the champion to the newcomer. I believe we [from Nova Uniao] are the only ones that don’t do that, because Andre (Pederneiras) was always against steroids. I think it’s wrong to criticize someone who came forward and said they take TRT."

Aldo won’t point fingers at Vitor Belfort, like many do, for using the testosterone replacement therapy, and he said he doesn’t believe Randy Couture was clean during his 22-year MMA career, despite the fact that "The Natural" never tested positive for any prohibited substance.

"Americans always used that," he said. "Randy Couture fought until he was 50, and you say he was clean? If the doctors prescribe you and you’re on the limits, OK, I see no problem. If I need that one day, I will use TRT too."

I thought it was common knowledge that Randy was on it.

I don't see any controversy in anything he said.

I don't see the big deal about what he said. Everything he said is true. Just because he is ok with it does not mean he is on it or supports steroids. Phone Post 3.0

How is he calling them out when he says he has no problem with it and would do it himself if/when the day comes that he needs it?

Couture statement isn't that big of a deal. It was Couture that brought TRT into the mainstream, and it was Joe Rogan that outed him for it.

Why would he call out his own team?

Would you do that?

He isn't the first to mention Couture not being clean throughout his career. Lets not act like what he said is that bad. Phone Post 3.0

He speaks the truth other than stating his own team doesn't use it. Other than that, he didn't say anything that wasn't true.

Its the same as when Jeremy Horn said that like 90% of MMA fighters were on steroids

He's insinuating everyone is on something hence "everyone using" .

Besides Aldo supporting trt is extremely surprising considering his age and what it does to the sport

Not sure why he felt the need to call out Couture, one of only a couple dozen guys to pass a random drug test. Prior to UFC 91, he and Lesnar both passed random tests.

But it does come off hypocritical, and I like aAldo.

Did Couture ever fail a test (i'm not sure)?

I leave you guys with this:

What do you make of Jose Aldo supporting TRT?

Is it wrong to criticize someone who came forward and said they take TRT?

Defending Vitor by stating "American always used that".Does that sound like a sound defense of TRT ?

Peace.

"Americans always use them"? What does that have to do with anything? Look at the list of baseball players involved in the Biogenesis scandal. Most of them are not American. Get your facts straight Jose.

"I have no problem with TRT, everyone is on roids, but my team isn't because the head coach said he didn't like them"
