    Are you insinuating that some pro athletes might have taken PEDs to gain a competitive advantage???

    I think Bigfoot needs it to stay healthy, he might be taking a replacement drug in its place, but he actually does have a medical condition one of treatment of which is to take whatever he was taking, I believe.

    I think HMC and Bigfoot had a similar issue and had some tumor in his brain and both had a surgery to remove it. HMC was supposed to be, i think, on TRT for a year at least, but I think he said fuck it and didn't do it and look at how much muscle mass he lost. He looks anorexic now.

    It's like HIV. YEah you need antiviral drugs obviously to stay alive, but even if you don't, you may keep on living depending on your immune system. If Bigfoot isn't getting some drug in its place, which I think he should be getting, he probably isn't necessarily doing something that he would be recommended doing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he still takes a shot or two for sure.

    Though it's going to be harder with New Testing.

    In my opinion, from what I understand, Bigfoot and HMC is the only ones who actually needed it with actual verified medical condition with a tumour in their brain which had to be removed surgically. Now, if you ask me what's interesting to me is..

    didn't Vitor and Hendo state that they NEEDED trt? And why is Hendo pointing fingers at anyone?

    Bigfoot has looked like a walking corpse recently, I believe he needs it. Ever read about him producing milk without it??? I feel for the guy as someone who need it but if he cant compete without it and they are all tested tough shit, cant make different rules for a 280lbs giant!

    Also non TRT Bigfoot is getting stomped in a round by Hunt!

    You know, it is a medical condition to have a reduced amount of testosterone depending on how low it is.

    It gets way too sketchy when people use it when it has been naturally reduced due to age, past circumstances, and etc and basically gain unfair advantage from it.

    The man gets dropped by a gust of wind, is producing milk, and it's confirmed he suffers from acromegaly. He probably does need it.

    Listen who the hell knows who's taking what. Just look at HMC after surgery. Dude looks like he lost half his weight.

    I just think when someone's producing lower testosteron naturally because of whatever they did in the past or just because they got old, they shouldn't be allowed to gain any advantage from it, since they could perform just as if they were in their younger period but more experience/skills gained. But who knows right, maybe Hendo and Vitor really needed it, and Vitor pissed hot in the past but maybe it was a false positive.

    But, if you need it, then you need it.

    Does Bigfoot need it? I'm not a doctor, so who knows. But if he did need it, then he did need it. Is it fair that he competes with it? Who knows

    IIRC He needed it not to have brain surgery which he had after the TRT ban.
