Both fighters were on Testosterone Replacement Therapy. In the past 16 fights, he has lost only five, to Henderson and Belfort, to Chael Sonnen who was on TRT, to Wanderlei Silva who was banned for life after running from a PED test, and lastly, he lost to Tim Kennedy. Kennedy is the sole clean fighter "The Count" lost to since 2007.</p>
“I suppose if I really think about it and work myself up about it, yeah, I could do that,” said Bisping. “But realistically, I accepted those fights, and I knew what I was getting into. The way I see it, you’ve got to take it like a man. You dust yourself off, and you get back in there.”
“If people’s testosterone levels can be 10 times higher than what it normally is, of course that’s going to give you an edge. Like this morning, my body was sore because I’ve been training real hard, and my body just can’t do it. So I planned that today I’d take the morning off and do nothing, because I need to. Perhaps if I was taking testosterone or whatever medicine these guys took, I wouldn’t need to have taken this morning off. I would have recovered better and had more muscle mass and hit harder and run faster. Those things all help.”
“Would things have been different? Yes, probably. Am I bitter about it? No, I’m not. I try to take it like a man, and get on with the rest of my life.”
Next stop in the rest of his life is UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs. Bisping (UFC Fight Night 55) where he fights Luke Rockhold on November 8, 2014 in Sydney, Australia.
