09:33 AM ET 03.26 | Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a rising concern in mixed martial arts as it is being used by a number of fighters of every level as an excuse for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. With the questions rising and performance enhancing drugs eventually leading to questions on the validity of the sport, a number of top fighters have spoken out against TRT and their wishes for increased drug testing. UFC championships Ben Henderson and Georges St-Pierre have already spoken up about the issue, and heavyweight title holder Cain Velasquez has joined the cause. Velasquez shared his thoughts on increased regulations and drug testing moving forward. Two of the measures Velasquez would like to see implemented are increased random drug testing and blood testing.
