 MAJOR: Dana laying the smack down on TRT users BIG TIME.

Dana White came down hard on the increasing use of testosterone replacement therapy by UFC f!ghters. From his talk, it seems he became aware of f!ghters using high doses of testosterone for gains in camp, who then tapered off so they could pass blood tests administered at the time of their f!ghts.

White over the summer before the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen f!ght had told Todd Grisham, the former WWE announcer and now ESPN reporter, that he didn't believe TRT should be in f!ghting, but came out the strongest he's ever been on the subject today after weigh-ins, in an interview transcribed by MMA Opinion.

"TRT has become a way for people to cheat. If this is what your normal level should be and then you have guys training at huge levels for their whole camp then tapering down to get to normal levels before the f***ing f!ght, that's cheating, and I don't like it anymore."

"There are plenty of guys inthe UFC that are naturally gifted and talented f!ghters. If you're testosterone levels are too low, then you're probably too old to be f!ghting. Stop f!ghting."

"We can test everybody. I'm telling you right now, if you are using testosterone replacement therapy, get ready motherf***ers becaue we're going to test the s*** out of you."

"Some things recently have led me to believe that people are f***ing cheaters, people are taking good things and turning them into a bad tihng and if you want to play those games, then guess what, we'll play."

"There's somuch s*** out there. Right now there's banned substances and we follow the regulations and we're going after the banned substances. TRT was never one of them and they would be tested leading up to the f!ght to make sure the levels are good. If you're on TRT now, you're going to wish you weren't. We're going to test the living s*** out of you."

"You have guys that go in there 100% natural with his talent and natural ability against someone on TRT, basically someone that's on steroids. I'm absolutely 100 percent against TRT and now I'm going to start f!ghting it 100 percent with the athletic commissions and I want nothing to do with it."

Dana may just implement more random testing among those who are prescribed TRT, ie: weekly or bi-weekly testing, it becomes moot if the f!ghters know WHEN their test are though because some steroids can be flushed out of your system and test levels go normal after 24 hours. OR Dana could take the much more expensive route and blood test these guys and see if they have been abusing it, period. But that's unlikely.

I believe this is probably a PR stunt, because there is an incentive to allow certain guys to do what they want. It's no secret that the UFC has had a "see no evil" mentality towards f!ghters that are obviously using drugs. As long as you don't get caught then they don't care. I'm really interested in what UFC is gonna do and how genuine they are about stopping the abuse.

Good, if there is gonna be so much controversy over the loophole it shouldnt be there. Its a company you lose a few f!ghts and you are cut so obviously people will look to find an edge
