"I think everyone is really of the same opinion as I am, if they want to admit it or not. Stuff like this is not easy to talk about. We're talking about friends and colleagues of mine. They look at me and they hear me say these things, and they're like, 'You know you're the only guy that doesn't do it, right?' And I'm like, I know. It's a catch-22 for me. I believe so strongly in fair play and all these things, and on the other side, it's people you know and people you look up to, legends of the sport. They've been involved with stuff like that. I guess I shouldn't be so outspoken because I have so many friends and colleagues and so many people I respect in this sport that have gotten involved with stuff like TRT and hormone replacement."
-- B.J. Penn is a sad panda. That's partially because he believes so strongly in an even playing field and knows he's a part of a sport that doesn't have one and partially due to the fact that even his friends and men he's looked up to are doing something he considers cheating. It's easy to feel alienated in a situation such as this and "The Prodigy" does. He even claims, in an interview with the MMA Hour, that well-known coaches have approached him about using testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), which he says he resisted each time. It's a problem Penn wants to see go away and he's definitely not alone in his desires. But will the sport of MMA ever make it to that point? And is the UFC really full of steroid abusers and cheats like Penn says? Sound off, Maniacs.
