Honestly is this stuff really needed

jdogg Says, in 12-18-2013 at 10:20:38 from    

Why was he allowed an exemption??

Bruno: His T-levels are in the 150 range where normal levels are between 300-1000. Years ago a medical exam revealed an abnormality with his pituitary gland, known as acromegaly, in which tumors on the gland cause excessive creation of growth hormone in the body. He had the tumor removed and now his body produces very little normal growth hormone.

TRT really is not anabolic steroid and it replaces naturally made testosterone its not like the kind Cris Cyborg was using she was using the type that changes your face and f**** your life up basically because you will have a good few years doing what she does but she will pay dearly trust me in the end plus this takes away from what steroids does not give and that is the heart and determination to win or die that Silva displayed in that fight and fu cking TRT does not enhance that. The commission is all over stupid shi t like this but lets all the other crap slide… go figure.

The blind leading the brain dead.

I wonder if he could have fought with the tumor… Naturally on HGH…

@jasonfn22. Punctuation keys on your keyboard broken? That is one long run-on sentence.

I know now why fedor didn’t want to fight in the UFC. There are so many fighters using TRT. Even Henderson and Silva use the TRT and both fought with Fedor. I think you simply can’t compete with TRT fighters, because they have much more energy and muscle mass. That’s only my opinion based on fittnes and judo experiences. I do sport only as an amateur so firgive me if I am wrong.

Can’t find that anywhere. Everyone giving their opinion without knowing whether he was WAY OVER. And his pituitary gland has nothing to do with test.

fitedoc Says, in 12-18-2013 at 12:25:43 from    

Sorry to inform you geniuses but his pituitary condition and the surgical excision of probably 60% of his pituitary gland CAN and likely WILL cause very low testosterone levels. Ever heard of GNRH???? Maybe you should go read about the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis before you post stupid s***.

jdogg Says, in 12-18-2013 at 12:37:39 from    

Thanks Bruno. That certainly does explain why an exemption was made. But his T levels should stay the same as every other fighter with the right medication. If they can’t be regulated, then unfortunately it’s probably time to step away from fighting, in the US anyway. It’s just not fair to the other fighters.

wcoastassassin Says, in 12-18-2013 at 12:45:45 from    

^someone001 Over 1,000 as Bruno stated. The median average is somewhere in the 500 range for a man his age.

Sorry dude but if you don’t think people we’re juicing their nuts off in Pride you’re daydreaming.

gcbies Says, in 12-18-2013 at 14:43:51 from    

Thanks Bruno…like it was written for a peer reviewed medical journal;)

Well you have to agree on one thing, he is a cross between Shriek and a sunfish. What a mug.

Liberty Lake Says, in 12-18-2013 at 16:09:05 from    

Simple solution:
Don’t allow trt

KungFuLowKick Says, in 12-18-2013 at 16:58:52 from    

Exactly what i was always saying. The guys using TRT are the same guys who used to do steroids, they just found a loophole in the law. Seriously why would you have low testosterone if you are a 30 years old athlete?? Unless you abused steroids in the past or have a REAL medical condition like losing a testicle or something like that.

MR. Creepy Says, in 12-18-2013 at 20:59:35 from    

listen all of u misinformed lemmings….99% of all athletes , no matter the sport use SOMETHING…sorry to crush ur dreams..but it is the truth… most if not all of ur hero’s use something…just get used to it..

asdasdas Says, in 12-18-2013 at 21:00:07 from    


You are generalizing. As Bruno already pointed out, Bigfoot suffers a very rare condition. Look up “acromegaly”, it is well documented. This used to be all over his wikipedia page years ago. Not sure why they removed it. I have never seen anything that links steroid usage with acromegaly.

So, in this case it is a REAL medical condition…the guy literally has half his pituitary gland left lol. Ftr, no excuse for being elevated but he really can only rely on his professional doctors.

MONTE Says, in 12-18-2013 at 23:22:59 from    

Bigfoot has been on TRT’s since at least 2011. He’s had quite a long time to get accustomed to how much he needs to use in order to test safely and be within range. The real problem is that many of the people who are legally approved to take TRT’s in sports take much higher dosages between fights and then come down to the testing range come fight time in order to pass. This wild change in levels makes it hard for them to level out in a safe range for testing and they blow tests. They error to the high side so that they aren’t very low come fight time and they end up overdoing it. I think if they’re going to allow the continued usage and approval of TRT’s they should have to be regularly tested, at least monthly. This doesn’t give them time to go super high, and then level back out for tests. They can just get on TRT’s, find their proper range and dosage, and then stick to that (pardon the needle pun).

baller Says, in 12-19-2013 at 11:28:29 from    

This TRT is just an evidence that these fighters were on mad steroids earlier in their days

mikebenoit Says, in 12-19-2013 at 13:24:22 from    

Am i the only one who thinks he sounds high during these video interviews?? I saw him on Inside MMA and he ounded VERY loopy. and look at this still picture on here. looks like he is high on pain killers to me….

KungFuLowKick Says, in 12-20-2013 at 16:59:37 from    

Maybe he sounds like that because of his giant lips and he looks like that because of his giant forehead…

bambam Says, in 12-21-2013 at 06:05:11 from    

isn’t this the guy that said overeem was made in a lab? ha . thats funny

judomaster Says, in 12-21-2013 at 13:16:38 from    

I’m absolutely sure that drug use was also presented at Pride, but if you look at Fedor’s body structure and compare to other juiced fighters then were maybe Fedor’s juices out of date or how do you explain this to yourself? Fedor’s fighting advantage was never power strength, it was always tehniques of judo and Sambo. The only< reason for Fedor's drug using would be to enhance the energy duration.

ericsson Says, in 12-21-2013 at 13:45:49 from    

Antonio Silva you big f****** Brazilian drug abusing ass hole
the UFC needs to get rid of this fool

paddedummy Says, in 12-24-2013 at 09:07:49 from    

This TRT should be banned for everybody. You lost a nut to cancer or were born with giant retard disease and now you have the testosterone levels of a little girl? Sucks to be you, you picked the wrong job by deciding to fight then, so find something else to do besides competing with real men who don’t need artificial testosterone replacement therapy to grow a beard instead of a pair of titties. If I am in an accident and have a hand amputated, do I get to keep fighting and hit my opponents with one of those prosthetic metal hooks instead of a fist?
