Dan Henderson is zeroed in on his upcoming rematch with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, but said he is not considering retirement now that TRT is banned in many locations.

I'm still confused on this issue…. if a guy "needs" TRT to get to normal levels than how will he ever get caught if every time he is tested his levels come in at the required normal level??? so whats stoping them from just using TRT as long as their levels don't go above normal

Nothing. But the commission will test the people who had prior exemptions rigorously during their training camps. I would think so at least.

Probably nothing. Unless they test for synthetic testosterone and I remember reading somewhere that they don't do this because its apparently too expensive.

This is a result of all the bullshit. Fighters coming in at 19-1 ratios...taking bouts only in certain places...The whole thing was bullshit and now it's back to normal. I don't feel for them either, give an inch take a mile. The only guy whose situation should be looked at is Bigfoot...but then again fuck it as he came in hot recently too.
