Default Chael Sonnen: Due to ramifications of TRT ban, 'I may have to stop the sport'

From MMAFighting.com (By Shaun Al-Shatti on Mar 5 2014, 8:02p):

Following the recent ban on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and subsequently the UFC, known TRT user Chael Sonnen spoke about the ramifications of the announcement on Wednesday's episode of UFC Tonight, as well as Vitor Belfort's decision to drop out of a middleweight title fight at UFC 173.

"There's a lot of moving parts. I don't have all the answers," Sonnen said. "The bottom line is testosterone is out. Now, as it relates to Vitor, I think this was a very genuine and sincere thing for him. Here's the problem that I have: a fighter that said seven days ago, ‘I need TRT or I can't do this,' and then all of a sudden goes, ‘Well, I'll just stop TRT.' I find that very disingenuous.

"I am potentially in that same field. If this retires guys, then it retires guys. The rules are the rules, and the rules need to be followed. Personally, sorry to be long winded about this, but I'm going through this myself, where I've had to stop testosterone with the hope that we can find a new way to gain the results of upping testosterone to stay at a healthy level. If it doesn't work, I may have to stop the sport. And it's as simple as that."
