its funny cuz chael was one of the first to poke fun on twitter when reem got caught .. then he probably realized that reem is gonna use the TRT defense and decided to change his tune .. reem is done .. he won't get his license, the fight will be cancelled and he will be tossed from the ufc ........

There are a lot of grey areas to this, but the fact remains that your testosterone levels can't be over what is considered the normal range, and they certainly aren't likely to be that high unless something else is going on. Just by testing with the levels he did, he is already "guilty", in a sense. Just like with Chael, you can claim to need TRT all you want, but you still have to have test within the accepted range. That goes for both in competition and out of competition testing.

Keith Kizer did a pretty good interview on Sherdog last Sunday where he addresses a lot of these issues that we have had in recent months. He doesn't seem to have a legit answer, in my opinion, as to why they don't do blood testing along with urine testing, but it's still a great interview. http://www.sherdog.com/radio/Rewind-Keith-Kizer-2443

Thatís an excellent point, the current test may not be phrenology but it is far from ideal.
