    He wasn't putting his T levels to a 21 year olds, he was taking a superhuman dose.

    I don't know the science behind it but he was faster, stronger, more confident and could train longer and harder.

    This was the result.

    You reminded me to Edson Carvalho, when asked about Mark Kerr, who he challenged in the days of the World Vale Tudo Championships.

    Interview: Mark Kerr is an animal, a speciment. Do you think tht the weight difference is not going to affect you adversely?
    Edson: He's not a lion, neither an elephant, a giraffe or a rhinoceros.

    Bingo!! I came in to say this. People always talk about the physical advantage but the mental advantage gained is just as important. Vitor is proof of this.

    Or could it mean mma has evolved so much since victor was young and if vitor was born at a later date could have been a monster with modern training. Hmm who knows

    Preeeeety sure the argument in baseball was that steroids don’t help you make contact, which is said to be the hardest thing in pro sports. It obviously increases your power and bat speed. Those are two different arguments though.

    The biggest benefit of exogenous testosterone is in recovery. I’m not sure what Vitor was on, but a steroid like Deca is also great for joints. Bodybuilders used to assume that it was because it made you retain water to lubricate your joints better but would research actually prove is that Deca is responsible for the genesis of new cartilage. Another myth is that steroids hurt your cardio. Turinabol has been proven to enhance your cardio. The most popular one for testosterone replacement therapy is Testosterone cypionate. Cypionate makes your bones stronger, enhances your mood, gives you mental clarity. While I was on it the biggest benefit that I loved and now miss is how great your sleep is. You wake up refreshed. I felt like I sprang out of bed every morning instead of dragging my ass out still half asleep. Ultimately I stopped because I didn’t like the research I was reading. Science has even tagged testosterone as the reason men live shorter lives than women.

    So I just used a bunch of words to basically say that: On steroids you are able to train longer, harder, and more often than without.

    I have to respectfully disagree. The commission set threshold levels that fighters were allowed to maintain and required not to exceed. Did guys still cheat? Of course. But they were tested regularly and to be above the threshold was the same as a fail.

    And I have to highlight the irony of putting the Dan Henderson KO in there when Dan was also on TRT.

    Lol. True commitment would have been doing your due diligence to find out that horse cadaver urine wouldn’t have the same chemical composition of LIVE human urine.

    That's what I'm kinda asking. Like what did you read about the long term effects that made you stop.

    Like I said in the post, the scientific community has singled out testosterone as the main reason men don’t live as long as long as women.

    Vitor claims he let up on the hold because he didnt want to break Jon's arm.

    If that's true hes dumb as a box of rocks
