I think it can be summed up pretty well in this post :
"The T/E test is simply to identify the presence of a synthetic testosterone (a banned steroid).
Chael had this present in his body, at the time of the fight.
The CSAC does NOT do blood work for overall testosterone levels, as it is MUCH more expensive, and shouldn’t be needed because the urine tests find the presence of any steroids.
The problem comes in, and is the point of your thread, when people spread misinformation after this hearing.
The CSAC said, based on the test results Chael’s Paid doctor brought in (which were NOT from the time of the fight, but much earlier, and also a few days after the fight), showed that Chael’s overall levels were “normal” or within range.
However, NO ONE knows where his levels were during the fight, nor will we ever.
We DO know that Chael SELF injects.
We DO know that fighters are aware that the CSAC does NOT do blood tests for overall Testosterone levels.
We DO know Chael failed to report he was taking a banned steroid on the form for the pre-fight physical exam.
We DO know the doctor performing that physical asked Chael TWICE if he was sure there was nothing he was leaving off of the form, and Chael confirmed twice that the form was accurate.
We DO know that there is not a single document that shows Chael has EVER been approved for TRT/HRT by an Athletic Commission in a state where he fought an MMA fight.
Make your own opinions, but that is what we do and don’t know." - GracieBJJallDay
