Never had high levels?he never failed a test and never had high levels though
Yeah it did help him no doubt, he wasn't cheating the system like Vitor or Chael for example, thats what I'm saying, he never came in with the test of a silverback, he was within the acceptable range of his exemption.Never had high levels?
I can't get down with that.
I respect the Hendo...but IMO he was juicing as hard as possible on TRT...and it helped him win a bunch of fights...as it did for almost all of the TRT exemption guys
Just my take
Not on fight night he didn't.Yeah it did help him no doubt, he wasn't cheating the system like Vitor or Chael for example, thats what I'm saying, he never came in with the test of a silverback, he was within the acceptable range of his exemption.
We really shouldn't keep this conversation going in Hawks Fedor thread man..... last postNot on fight night he didn't.
But the training is when they could do whatever they wanted to, chael admitted he did everything could(3 PEDs at a time) and used huge doses of test during camps...Personally I think the real abuse of TRT was in camp, because they only tested you during fight week.
Just my take, not throwing shad on Dan...I think a few of his fights go the other way if he didn't have the exemption as a reason to have foreign test in the body.
He was entertaining no doubt, and certainly one hard ass motherfucka.
its all goodWe really shouldn't keep this conversation going in Hawks Fedor thread man..... last post
Vitor was caught ooc, they weren't just tested on fight night, guys with TUEs had a more strict monitoring process if I remember correctly, it wasn't a licence to juice and guys who used it that way got caught and suspended.
Majority of guys take something, especially back then, Hendo had a tue for TRT, he didn't abuse it, he operated within the rules that were set for him, he gets no black mark on his name in my book.
I can see the argument, but Hendo was a .500 fighter. I'd put Demetrious Johnson, Matt Hughes and Jones ahead of him.its all good
keep fight conversations going, not enough of it lately.
I believe Hendo is the greatest American fighter of all time
but have no doubt he was juiced to the max for a few years.
Since conor had such great prime wins over brimage and siverHe fought people like Hong Man Choi and Zuluzinho in his prime.
Easily the most overrated fighter ever.
He fought opponents in wherever they wantedim not one for goats, but if there were to be a Mount Rushmore of mma he would be front and center.
Not alwaysHe fought opponents in wherever they wanted
Then beat them
Thank you...how people can shit on him makes me think “you have no understanding of that time nor get mma”Fedor went 33-1 from 2000 to 2009. He fought whoever was put in front of him, no matter the size or record.
He may or may not have been on steroids during this period but the majority of his opponents were on them without a doubt.
He was an unstoppable force during this time.
Fedor would have destroyed the ufc heavyweight champs at any time during his reign in pride.
im not one for goats, but if there were to be a Mount Rushmore of mma he would be front and center.
