I thought so, too, but I actually just listened to one of Joe Rogan's podcasts where he talked to an endocrinologist. He's been practicing for about 30yrs now & has dealt with cases where non-concussive blows have shut down testosterone production in guys as young as 17. He's 100% convinced that a) life as an MMA fighter would almost certainly be detrimental testosterone production, & b) if you're on TRT, you have no place in a combat sport.

It was a really, really interesting interview. I highly recommend it:
