Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Mike Chiappetta of MMAFighting.com.
Breen and Chiappetta discuss testosterone replacement therapy and its place within MMA, springboarding off of Chiappetta’s recent takeout feature on TRT. The two discuss the moral implications of these powerful hormones in sport, their usefulness outside of athletics, and the essential philosophical question of what kinds of people are “suitable” to take performance-enhancing drugs.
The two also discuss what can be done on the regulatory side, the idea of an “even playing field” in sports, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Lasik eye surgery, scar tissue removal and much, much more.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
