Dana White has flip flopped on the TRT subject in the past be it looks like the Prez is taking a firm stand. Maybe it has to do with the fact that he is in the UK and their most popular fighter (Bisping) has only 2 losses in his 7 fights (Sonnen and Belfort) and both were using TRT. Here’s Dana:
“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 (of testosterone) for their whole camp then tapering down to get to normal levels before the ******* fight, that’s cheating, and I don’t like it anymore.”
“There are plenty of guys in the UFC that are naturally gifted and talented fighters. If you’re testosterone levels are too low then you’re probably too old to be fighting, stop fighting!”
“We can test everybody. I’m telling you right now, if you are using testosterone replacement therapy, get ready ************* because we’re going to test the **** out of you.”

Last Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 7 event featured 12 fights, with nine of them being decided by the three judges sitting cageside. With so many scraps ending via decision, it’s easy to understand why most of the bouts didn’t leave a lasting impression.
However, the welterweight affair between Matt Riddle (Pictured) and Che Mills certainly caught UFC President Dana White’s...

Unrelated but wonderful.By now you’re probably aware that the International Olympics Committee – long known for being a bastion of integrity and morality – has decided to do away with amateur wrestling as a Summer Olympic event. You know this because you read about it in a rational news source or Joe Rogan rage-Tweeted your feed or because Chael Sonnen screamed it into your...

Dana White Suffers Mineirs Attack at Trinity College
Less than one month ago, Nick Diaz (Pictured) arrived in Canada to host a dreaded “beauty pageant” to promote his UFC 158 blockbuster bout against welterweight king Georges St-Pierre. Diaz was on his best behavior before, during and after the press conference, which led many to believe the 29-year-old had finally turned a new leaf.
Well, as the old adage goes, “Old habits die...
Ediane Gomes will be the first test for Cris Cyborg in Invicta and this video shows she will not be a layup fight. Although Rousey took her out in only 25 seconds. Thanks to MiddleEasy.com for the video.

Cyborg Has Message For Rousey
The cheater’s handbook for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) suggests athletes are manipulating the regimen while preparing for a fight. They will jack up their testosterone levels beyond normal ranges in order to push their bodies to its outermost limit. As showtime steadily approaches, they will then taper off the treatment to get their testosterone back to a natural level...
Although the UFC is only offering a bantamweight division for women, they were still willing to keep former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos (Pictured) under contract while paying her to fight for Invicta FC.
However, instead of agreeing to the deal – which would have afforded the 27-year-old the countless benefits of being employed by the planet’s...
We’ve seen the bros before belts philosophy countless times in mixed martial arts, including at American Kickboxing Academy, and that’s why UFC President Dana White believes Daniel Cormier (Pictured) will ultimately drop to the light heavyweight division to avoid a scrap against AKA teammate and UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez.
Although Cormier will make his big league...
A big issue in MMA today is the judging. UFC on Fuel TV 7 was not free of this problem. There were a couple of questionable scores but none more evident than the split decision win for Matt Riddle. Riddle clearly dominated the fight with superior wrestling and control and the judge who scored it for Mills should never be allowed to be involved in an MMA event again. At least...
