A recent article in the Orange County Register described how several UFC stars have gotten doctors' prescriptions for "testosterone replacement therapy" on the grounds that their own natural levels were low.
Here are some of the fighters who are trying to supplement their own measly supply.

And Vitor Belfort:
The idea that these guys need testosterone replacement therapy is as ludicrous as the concept of "medical marijuana." (Personally, I think marijuana should be legalized, if only to put some of the cartels out of business and provide a new source of tax revenue. But in the meantime, the idea that it has a legitimate medical value seems questionable.)
And it seems to me that there are a few doctors who need to lose their licenses.
Then again, I haven't been feeling very happy recently. I wonder if there are any doctors who'll give me a prescription for some medical Ecstasy or medical cocaine.
