Juice, Forrest, Juice!

The UFC has been on a pretty good testing run lately … drug tests from UFC 148: clean. Drug tests from UFC 147: clean. UFC 146 tests: clean. That doesn’t fully tell the tale, though. UFC 146 would have been a very different event indeed had Alistair Overeem not popped positive after a random drug testing. And after the event took place, it was revealed that replacement headliner Frank Mir had been approved for TRT. We already knew that Chael Sonnen would be taking testosterone for his UFC 148 title fight, but just revealed is Forrest Griffin’s use of the stuff:

In advance of his UFC 148 rubber match with Tito Ortiz, Forrest Griffin obtained a therapeutic use exemption for testosterone replacement therapy.

The exemption was first reported by Pro MMA Radio host Larry Pepe, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) subsequently confirmed the decision with Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer were unsuccessful.

Ortiz told he would consult with his representatives before issuing a statement to the media.

It’s interesting to note that Forrest’s opponent didn’t even know about the TRT exemption until us fans found out too. That’s just a whole ‘nother level of messed up right there, and he wasn’t too happy about it:

@ForrestGriffin sorry to hear you had to use #steroids to beat me! Wait or try to beat me. @ForrestGriffin = #cheater lol. Have a good day! (Posted at 2:08 PM, July 13)

That post was deleted soon after but Tito also agreed with one fan who said maybe … just maybe … your opponent should be allowed to know beforehand if you’re going to be competing on TRT.

    I wonder if you pinch the juice directly in the phallic could your opponent tell?

    Funny, I could have sworn Forrest used movement and lots of face-punches to beat Tito.  I’m not sure how much TRT or even steroids helped with that.

    ^^Is that a serious statement?

    “The exemption was first reported by Pro MMA Radio host Larry Pepe,

    They confirmed it with Kizer were unsuccessful? Did they try to confirm it with Kizer but were unsuccessful or did they confirm it?

    LOL at Tito bitching about someone taking PED’s. I’m sure his head naturally grew to be the size of a beach ball and he competed cleanly throughout his entire career.

    like tito has never cheated before

    If Forest Griffen wasn’t a cop,
    he’d be fuck you awesome!

  • Reverend Clint

    he was a college cop… barely a level above rent-a-cop

    Does TRT give you better boxing and cause your opponent to stand there and let you punch him in the face?

  • agentsmith

    I’m not defending TRT, just sayin Tito’s “you needed steroids to beat me” claim doesn’t hold water either way.

  • G Funk

    ^ I think the logic is that TRT makes you faster/stronger ex. and therefore the movement and face punches you speak of would be faster and harder as a result.

    Sure Foerest needs the skrillaz to do what he did, however if you feel that a ‘lil xtra TRT wouldn’t help with that then as Fricky said, “Is that a serious statement?”
