    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

    Really of all those guys retire, there's a lot of big names there.
    I'd say UFC will be affected by this.

    I wasn't aware Overeem was officially on TRT...getting busted for elevated levels doesn't mean you're on TRT, there's many things he could have been on...he never had a TUE from a commission

    Dude, the guy was on the juice for years, obviously his levels would be low by about his age.

    This will haunt Dan Henderson more than anyone. He'd be lucky to get it for the Shogun fight.

    They'll all be gone...the only one of those that I think can manage without it is Vitor and Bigfoot.

    Vitor Belfort - It will affect him greatly. He will scramble to find something else to mask his "support". He will retire within the next year after losing to Weidman.

    Chael Sonnen - He should retire because he claimed he would die without TRT. It will affect him for sure much of his latter career success came after getting on TRT much like Hendo.

    Alistair Overeem - I don't think he is on TRT not suppose to getting testosterone anyways....

    Dan Henderson - His career gotten a huge resurgence, and he became a knockout machine because of TRT. He is the most obvious example of TRT benefits in the sport. Lately more often then not he claims to not be on it. He is at the tailend of his career and his retirement is going to come even sooner now.

    Frank Mir - This is the end of Mir no matter what it seems.

    Antonio 'Bigfoot' Silva -The year layoff he will ave to deal with from his suspension, and now the TRT ban. His career in huge trouble for a nosedive.

    Ben Rothwell - He probably might have lost to Vera without the TRT. He certainly wouldn't have been break dancing in round 3 with strong cardio.

    Todd Duffee - He won't be the beast people keep hyping him up to be the once every two years he does get a fight.

    Nate Marquardt - I think after his recent loses he was looking at the end regardless. I for some reason remember that he had gotten off TRT awhile ago but I cannot remember it.
