Dan Henderson vs Lyoto Machida 478x270Testosterone replacement therapy is a controversial topic in sports.

Lyoto Machida faces Dan Henderson in the UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche co-main event on Saturday and Henderson is on TRT, but Machida isn’t concerned.

“Everybody has their own reasons for using it.  I don’t know, I’m not a doctor.  I’m a fighter,” said Machida during the UFC 157 open workouts on Wednesday.  “If the UFC says it’s okay, I think it’s good.”

Henderson has used the therapy since 2007.  Some fighters are hesitant to accept a fight with someone who uses TRT, but Machida isn’t one of them.

“No, it’s okay for me.  No problem,” he said.

UFC president Dana White recently stated that the organization will test fighters using TRT throughout their training camp in an effort to ensure it’s not being abused.  He also said, “If your testosterone level isn’t high enough, maybe you’re too old to fight.”

Henderson is 42 years old, but Machida feels Henderson can still complete with the top guys in the division.

“(Henderson) is old, but he’s still good.  He’s still strong.  He’s beaten a lot of guys.  He can still compete at a high level.”
