Dana White now says TRT is great

About a month ago, Dana said he would make TRT illegal if he could. He said it was "junk" that you didn't need unless you juiced when you were younger. Now this today from an interview with Fox Sports:

Quote:
Here's the thing about TRT. It's absolutely 100% legal. As sports medicine continues to advance, this is one of those things where every guy's testosterone level starts to drop as they get older and this is basically sports science now where they can bring it back up to a normal level. And I think it's great, it's absolutely fair, it's legal. The problem is, there are guys who say if this much is good THIS MUCH must be great, so you have guys who are always trying to do more than they're supposed to do. The big job is policing it, making sure that it's not being abused, that guys are using it the way it's supposed to be used.
UFC President Dana White Says TRT Is 'Great' One Month After Calling It 'Junk' Needed Due To Prior Abuse - Bloody Elbow

What do you think? Personally, I agree with the author of this article. If you get to 35 or 40 years of age and your testosterone levels are naturally dropping, well, that's just the way it is. I don't think you should be able to jack your testosterone back up to "normal" levels.

Too many of his big names admitted to being on it to not support it now. All american too, they always call cheating something different when they do it.

being that it is a legal process, isn't it akin to saying "protein supplements and multivitamins are for sissies and cheaters"? I know, going out on a limb here. Dana is changing his stance in case Dan Henderson beats Jones.

Here is partially the problem....

Barring long term injuries, what this means.. is that a 35 year old, who has had 15 years of training and experience.. now can have the hormone/body mass aiding etc levels of a 22 year old, who has only 2 years of training.

It actually does not LEVEL the playing field, it skews it.
