Will TRT affect older fighters' performance? Probably. After all, if there was no effect, then they shouldn't need TRT in the first place.

Duffee an older fighter? OK, he's 29, but that's still a bit harsh TS

Why is Todd Duffee on TRT?

He's only 28 years old so age shouldn't be a factor and he's a HW so it's not like he's hurt his body a bunch over the years by cutting weight.q

Taken steroids at a young age, probably killed his test levels
