It's obvious he was trying to work with them and keep everything on the up-and-up. I'm glad his suspension should be lifted next week. Now Dana needs to do his part, IMO, and bring him back into the UFC. I also agree that the results of the Miller fight should stand.
I'm still not clear on the TRT, he says if your levels test high at some point "you're going to get caught". But don't levels spike at times?
There's an accepted range, so as your levels fluctuate normally over time, that's OK. The problem is if you've got a guy who gets TUE, but then starts super-dosing (i.e. using his deficiency as an excuse to take more than recquired so that he is now, in fact, taking testosterone as a performance enhancer as opposed to a performance equalizer).
