Cung Le not thinking of retirement or getting on TRT to prolong career

Cung Le, like his opponent at UFC on FUEL TV 6, Rich Franklin, has no interest in using TRT before his career comes to an end. But when will that be?

Just say no, kids.

That's what Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Cung Le is doing when it comes to Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). After all, he's 40-years-old and com this far without it.

Why get on it now?

That's the thought process he conveyed to Bloody Elbow recently:

"You know, I never really thought about it. I feel that if other athletes have low levels, and a doctor prescribes it, then that's their decision to make. My decision is that I've gone this far without it, so I just want to finish out my career without the use of it. If Rich decides to do it or not, it's his decision. For me, it just doesn't change the gameplan. My back kick won't discriminate. It will connect the same way and do the same damage. I've gone this far without assistance, so why mess with a good thing? If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

As for how much time he actually has left in the game, Le revealed the status of his contract:

"This isn't the last fight on my contract. I actually have a six fight deal, so after this fight, it will be my half way mark. I'm taking it one fight at a time, and not looking too far ahead, right now. The crosshairs are on Rich Franklin, and nothing else."
