    Well of course it was peformance enhancing.

    I'm A-Okay with something that will make a 34+ year old feel like a mid to early 20 year old.

    I am indifferent to a guy using it to become some super saiyan like fighter though.

    Now clap your hands for him and praise him

    I get what you're saying but he is speaking from personal experience. Assuming "bitir" is Vitor, Chael is just stating what he felt it did for him and there is every chance it did the same shit for Vitor , we'll see how they both go in their fight. Both being TRT free now, it will be interesting to compare the differences in each guys performance.

    good that he admits he's not a man of his word. otherwise he would have had to kill himself for saying that he needed TRT to live.

    bullshit. a 34 year old feeling like a 20 year old with 16 years fight experience vs a 20 year old with 2 years fight experience is fair?

    Give that 20 year old the same shit, make him feel like a super saiyan and then we have a fight!

    legalise everything.

    He admitted it from the start. Surgery is a performance enhancer.

    He states there is a difference between use and abuse. Use is "enhancing" yourself to normal. Abuse is enhancing yourself to above normal.

    Eating food and drinking water are also performance enhancers.

    If we are being REAL honest here......lets also admit that no one with a TUE was taking *just* TRT levels of test.
