UFC middleweight Michael Bisping was interviewed on the MMA Show with Mauro Ranallo. He was asked his thoughts about one of the most controversial topics in MMA today, TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy).
“I think it’s absolute nonsense, rubbish, bullsh*t. Listen, we all get old, we all grow up, you know? At some point, as you start getting older, your balls don’t work as well and you don’t make as much testosterone, but, that’s life and you deal with it. A guy that is 40-years old doesn’t make as much testosterone as a 21-year old so he gets an exemption certificate to say, ‘So now we will give him as much testosterone as a 21-year old.’
Well, what about me, I’m 33 (years of age), I’m not making the same amount as a 21-year old, but I make more than a 40-year old. Where do we draw the line? It’s nonsense. Listen, nature determines that and I don’t think we should interfere with that. I think it’s cheating very, very well, it’s dressed up. Its nonsense, its absolute bullsh*t and I, for one, am very, very against it. I would never ever do that. I am who I am and I’ve done well doing what I do.”
Bisping is set to face Brian Stann at UFC 152 September 22 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON.
