    How did Dan Henderson and Nate Marquart fight after USADA testing? There is plenty of suspect fighters that havent been caught yet either.. How are these guys getting by with testosterone in their system?

    Micro dosing is a thing. It's how a lot of fighters are getting by. Don't know which ones. But it exists.

    You're asking how retired fighters got by USADA testing.

    Take a step back and ask yourself if that really matters

    False.

    Time is also a spatial dimension. We actively perceive 4 dimensions.

    Test comes back about 2-3 months after you stop taking it.

    Then how many fucking dimensions are there?

    I'm seeing one site mentioning 10,11 and 26.

    if Brian Greene is to be believed, at least 10
    Maybe 11
    probably not 26


    my advice?
    Go deep on shrooms and read some of Claude Lovelace's papers

    there are quite a few different variations of string theory en vogue right now.

    most of them use mathematical calculations to help support their hypothesis.

    those mathematical calculations fail when using 4, 5, 7, 9, 13, 18, etc dimensions.

    but all the math works when using 10, 11 or 26 dimensions. depending on which variation of string theory the person is trying to solve for, of course.

    that's it. an unproven hypothesis works better when the math uses a specific number of dimensions. it certainly doesn't prove there are that many dimensions.

    and outside of "math", no one is really sure what, exactly, a dimension is (other than the 4 we experience with our senses, that is).
    ~~~~~
    i don't mean to diminish science, string theory, etc. but it's all in it's infancy. one of the en vogue string theories may eventually become the best model to help us understand what's going on in our universe. but odds are it won't be any of them in their current form.

    remember, the Big Bang only became a theory because Hubble (in the 20's or so) saw red shift everywhere, and folks simply extrapolated backwards. then in the 80's they found that the red shift is actually going faster further away - e.g. instead of shit slowing down from gravity as time goes on (like a bullet fired from a gun) shit moved away faster the further it got from other shit! and no one knows why!!! they can measure it, they can describe it's actions, but they have no fucking clue why. so they call it "dark matter" as a place holder and continue to study it. similarly, they can calculate quantum mechanics, but have no clue why it works the way it does.

    we don't know a lot, and it's cool as hell.

    well, that's easy. they don't allow TRT. (EDIT: they may allow a TRT TUE exemption under a very, very, very stringent program. but the fighters have to actually prove something, not just apply for one and get one, like they did with AC's)

    so to answer TS's question, folks who got a TRT TUE exemption were indeed just 'playing the game'. abusing the system, you might say. and they were better fighters while using TRT. and worse fighters off it. and the TRT TUE exemption was banned by state AC's even before USADA. for all the right reasons.

    someone above said it only takes a few months. i'd heard a year, but however long it is the point is the same: eventually the body sorts it out if left to it's own devices.
