Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is against fighters using TRT, calling the substance a joke.
“I don’t like it because it’s fake,” said Rua to Sherdog. “My opinion, everyone should be the same condition. It’s an opinion for the commission.”
Rua is on a long list of fighters who are against its use. Some of the biggest names in the sport such as Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen have been linked to it.
The former light heavyweight champion fights Antonio Rogerio Nogueira on the June 15, UFC 161 card. It’s from the MTS Centre in Canada and is a rematch from their 2005 Fight of the Year.
