    Was browsing his wiki. Didn't he fight at around 260-265lbs. of horsemeat? He weights 230 now. Still a beast, but the anabolic advantages of TRT are undeniable. Hopefully he shakes up the HW division with his return.

    My uncle started using TRT a while back and ended up 20lbs heavier from it and looked pretty fit and athletic for a guy his age. He has since quit using it because of the increased risk of death and deflated back to about where he was.

    reading Sherdoggers posts about PEDs, TRT, etc is so painful- "increased risk of death"?

    and to address the topic,

    NO. he was never 265, or 260.
    try 250.

    and he. as several have mentioned, has been battling a disease. 1 with substantial more risk of death than "human chorionic gonadotropin" or cypionate.

    Wow...really TS? The guy has/had a debilitating illness in Parsonage-Turner syndrome. It weakness usually the upper body and nerves and he took a year off due to it and was actually two years inbetween fights.

    In his debut, he came in at 251lbs. In his fight in Dec of 2012, which was his last fight before a serious of illness and eventually being diagnosed with PT Syndrome, he weighed 249lbs. In his next fight, which was in Dec of 2014, he weighed 236.5. He was 12.5 lbs lighter in a two year time span...not that hard to imagine

    Well, risk of death is a bit too much, but it does have some significant side effects, including increased risk of prostate cancer and liver toxicity

    TRT can increase the risk of heart attacks and can result in death. FDA is researching this now.

    Google that shit.

    Wow, really? TRT, like any drug, if used correctly has wonderful benefits. Sure it has risks as all drugs do but they are relatively low. Let's see, shall we?

    Aspirin: Increased risk of brain and stomach hemorrhaging which could lead to death

    Ibuprofen: Kidney damage and kidney failure, chronic heart failure

    In short, if we go by worst case scenario like you, avoid aspirin and Ibuprofen at all costs too, as they can result in DEATH.

    Google that shit

    Back to the thread, Duffee came into the UFC at 251, fought in 2012 at 249, didn't fight for two years with a number of illnesses and came back in Dec 2014 at 236.5lbs, 12.5lbs lighter than in 2012. Not much...this TS though.

    The benefits of added muscle at HW seem to diminish as you approach the upper cutoff anyway.

    Plus, it doesn't seem to have diminished his KO power.

    That's still a good 15-20lbs lighter.

    It is always quite amusing the way Sherdog seems to turn a blind eye to white americans potentially using PEDs to have giant muscles yet seems obsessed with evil foreigners doing so.

    Of course Testosterone is anabolic, it is the male sex hormone and base for most Steroid cycles.

    If more exogenous testosterone is administered than the body can naturally produced, which is the purpose of TRT, the yes his body will be able to synthasise more protein and produce more muscle so a loss in muscle mass can be expected.

    Food is also anabolic so he could just be eating less. However, judging by his body composition, he has also increased body fat so has probably lost more muscle than the weight drop would indicate. I'd guess that the high likelihood is that his body change is due to him no longer having an exemption for using anabolic steroids in low/medium dosages.

    Parsonage-Turner syndrome would not account for any weight loss. Please.

    Pain and weakness to arms and shoulders.

    Yeah let me lose 20lbs bc of that.

    Either way, back to TRT.. doesn't mean he lost all his weight bc of coming off of it.

    Wasn't he hit for PEDs not long ago? So it wasn't just TRT but other "supplements" that have resulted in his willowing physique.
