UFC Quick Quote: Dennis Hallman fires back at 'ignorant' TRT critics

"People hear something from an official who was uneducated and they run around talking like they know the facts. They don't ... The thing about those guys is that they are as ignorant as they can be. You can't generalize everybody in every situation. Those guys probably don't even know where testosterone comes from in the body. You hear guys making statements that are ignorant all the time. And they've never spent 15 minutes looking up or studying hormone replacement. They make statements like that because the media propaganda machine brainwashes the average citizen into thinking steroids are bad. When really, they are medicine. But just like any medicine, if you abuse it, it becomes a drug."

Sounds like UFC welterweight Dennis Hallman (via MMA Nation) has a bone to pick with "ignorant" critics of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), a medical treatment that "Superman" knows a little something about after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease and undergoing Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to keep his mixed martial arts career afloat. Hallman, who takes on Brian Ebersole at UFC 133 on Aug. 6 in Philadelphia, may have a legitimate argument -- but it hasn't stopped fellow fighters like B.J. Penn from speaking his mind. Murky waters, no question, but are you, as a mixed martial arts fan, choosing sides? Or sweeping it under the carpet? Thoughts on this controversial issue?
