Mark Munoz has been involved in sports for as long as he can remember. The former Oklahoma State University wrestler and current UFC middleweight contender recently gave his take on the use of testosterone replacement therapy, something many MMA fighters are starting to use.
Munoz told Spencer Lazara of MMAInterviews.TV that he feels very strongly against the use of TRT, and believes it to be cheating.
It’s cheating. I think it’s cheating. I think anything that’s synthetic that you put in your body is cheating. Get it from food, get it from training. That stuff jacks you up when you’re done. I think when you take PEDs or anything like that, it cuts your life short. When it becomes like that, it’s almost hedonistic. It’s not a sport anymore.
Munoz was recently on the cusp of competing for the No. 1 contendership in the division before having to undergo surgery on his elbow. Currently, Munoz is awaiting word on his next fight, though many have him slated to face Chris Weidman in a key middleweight contest.
