They'll all retire or maybe Bellator will try to sign a couple of them, unless they adopt this rule too.

Why on earth do you expect them to somehow retire just because of a TRT ban? What they will do, most likely, is that they will say something about how they are respecting the rules, and will play by the rules.

But it's no problem to continue taking testosterone, whether in small doses or large doses. All you need is to monitor your levels so you pass tests. It's that simple really.

No it's not. testosterone levels greatly change based on many variables. Morning vs evening or afternoon, Stress levels, etc

Correct. Most fans are giant pussies. I find it heartbreaking to say goodbye to older fighters that have had their opportunity to fight at an elite level has been removed.

TRT wasn't a god send. How many fighters on trt have lost?
