Nate Marquardt Wins Strikeforce Gold – Cliff Notes


@Nate Marquardt, the former UFC contender, has won the vacant Strikeforce welterweight championship with a knockout of Tyron Woodley.

 Nate Marquardt – Post Tyron Woodley Interview – Strikeforce MMA

A few years ago, the MMA fighter admitted in an interview that he was suffering from low testosterone levels and his doctor recommended testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Before his fight against Dan Miller in New Jersey, he requested a therapeutic-use exemption (TUE) but the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board indicated that request of his doctor was incomplete and the TRT treatment was not in accordance with the standards of USADA. The Board said they would authorize the testosterone treatment as long as Marquardt agrees to go off treatment for eight weeks and take three blood tests after the fight.

However, the personal doctor of the fighter suggested aggressive treatment and recommended injecting the testosterone straight rather than allowing Marquardt to take oral medications that promote the pituitary gland to spur testosterone production in the testicles. The testosterone injections pushed the fighter’s levels out of the range accepted by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission (PSAC) and UFC President fired Marquardt through Twitter.

White said Nate Marquardt would never fight in the UFC again after he failed to clear his medicals for his main event fight against Rick Story at a UFC event in Pittsburgh. Marquardt then went public and disclosed that his medicals failed because of elevated levels of testosterone due to a testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT. The UFC President added that the MMA fighter tested positive for anabolic steroids in 2006, was on suspension for New Jersey, then failed to clear his medicals at Pennsylvania, and could not get a fourth chance. White added that there is a difference between testosterone replacement therapy and getting to levels where it is performance enhancing.

Born on April 20, 1979, Marquardt is an American mixed martial artist running the High Altitude Martial Arts Academy in Aurora, Colorado. Marquardt (31-10-2) has compiled 10 wins since joining the UFC in 2005 and has fought for the middleweight title in 2007 against Anderson Silva, which he lost via first-round TKO. Marquardt came close twice in 2010 to compete for the title again but fell short after decision losses to Chael Sonnen and Yushin Okami. On July 3, 2010 he was expected to face Alessio Sakara but the flight was called off after Sakara pulled out due to the death of his father. On March 19, 2011 at UFC 128, he won a fight against Dan Miller via unanimous decision after Yoshihiro Akiyama pulled out of the bout. The MMA fighter signed with top U.K. fight promotion BAMMA, the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts after his suspension was lifted by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission.

Recently, Dana White made an announcement that the fighter has signed with Strikeforce and his debut was Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy against Tyron Woodley in a bout for the vacant Strikeforce Welterweight Championship where he knocked out Woodley to become the Strikeforce Welterweight champion. The former UFC contender Nate Marquardt controlled the stand-up for the first two rounds and held off takedown attempts of Woodley to emerge victorious.

  Why Choose Testosterone Replacement Therapy?

Thousands of men in their late 30s and 40s are trying testosterone injections, solutions, and patches these days in desires of restoring virility and youth. This is because the amount of naturally-producing testosterone can be reduced with growing age and this is the time when artificial testosterone supplements or testosterone replacement therapy comes into the picture.

Testosterone is a naturally-producing steroid hormone that is accountable for the proper development of male sex-related features. It is also accountable to maintain muscle volume, sufficient levels of red blood cells, bone strength and solidity, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive functions.

The levels of natural testosterone may get limited or reduce due to many factors, including chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, hormone analogues used for treating prostate cancer and steroids, genetic abnormalities like Klinefelter’s syndrome (extra X chromosome), chronic illness, chronic renal (kidney) failure, injury or infection to the testicles, HIV and AIDS, congenital conditions, stress and inflammatory diseases. Symptoms of low testosterone include depressed mood, decreased sex drive, difficulties with memory and concentration, decreased sense of well-being, and erectile dysfunction. Low testosterone levels can lead to variable effects on cholesterol metabolism, increase in body fat, fragile bones (osteoporosis), decrease in body hair, decrease in muscle mass, decrease in hemoglobin, and possibly mild anemia.

However, treating testosterone deficiency can be made easy with testosterone patches that are worn either on the body or on the scrotum, or daily application of testosterone gels that are applied to the upper arms, shoulders, or abdomen, or administration of intramuscular injections, usually every two or three weeks, or using gum tablets or buccal medications. By using any of these corrective drugs or techniques, one can experience dramatic increases in appetite, activity of the skin’s oil glands, sex drive, body musculature, red blood cells (RBCs), body hair growth, muscle mass and bone density, etc. besides reducing fatigue, anger, and depression.

  Steroid use is way, way better than cutting off gonads to stay young

steroid-fountain-of-youthLet’s face it, we – and that means you and me, and everyone out there – all want to have youthful appearance for eternity. But since Ponce de Leon, et al., died of trying to find the Fountain of Youth and failed, we are left with the less elusive age-defying options, which are myriad according to an AP report.

Diet and exercise seem to be the common duo when you want to have a young-looking body. There are the cosmetic procedures – Botox, wrinkle fillers, collagen – you name it and any place nowadays, from Hollywood Hills to Timbuktu, seem to have clinics offering cosmetic reconstruction. You can also go for the bizarre and potentially fatal ways – inhaling radon gas, fetal cell injections, and – hear this – cutting off your own testicles! There are, of course, the synthetic compounds that can provide youthful appearance – anabolic steroids and human growth hormone.

The last category – of anabolic steroids and human growth hormones – has been opted for Dr. Jeffry Life for him to shape up and look young. Face up, you’ll have no doubt that Life is indeed nearing his septuagenarian years – he’s got bushy and white eyebrows beneath his reading glasses, he’s getting bald and the tufts of hair that remained are white. But from the neck down, he looks like a 30-year-old gym rat instead of 69-year-old doc.

If you see his pic, you’d say it’s been photoshopped or airbrushed like Jessica Alba’s post-baby calendar photo. But Life’s body is legit and he said he owed it to his strict diet and exercise regimen plus his testosterone and human growth hormone injections.
