Quinton "Rampage" Jackson avslöjar i en intervju med FightersOnly att han inför sin fight med Ryan BaderUFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson, tagit testostron-ersättning. Detta gjorde han på grund av en knäskada han ådragit sig under ett träningspass. Jacksons läkarna rådde honom att kolla sina testostron-nivåer, det visade sig ligga på en väldigt låg nivå.


Jackson säger i intervjun att han efter att ha tagit denna ersättning kände sig som en 25-åring igen och att han borde gjort det långt tidigare i karriären. Han berättar även om varför han missade viktgränsen inför fighten. Se ett utdrag ur intervjun här nedan.



I almost pulled out but then I went to see the doctor and he told me to talk to an age-management doctor. So I went and talked to them and they tested me and said my testosterone was low; they prescribed me testosterone, to bring my testosterone levels back up to levels where I can be like… so that I am the same as young people, like when I was 25, and it would help build my knee up. I hurt my knee like a month ago and I only did three shots of testosterone but it put a lot of weight on me, a lot of muscle on me but it healed me knee up good enough to where I could fight. 

It was hard for me to train, it takes time to heal, I couldn’t do certain things, but this was my first time ever using testosterone. I took what the doctor prescribed to me and I went to the pharmacy… I gave myself small doses and that shit immediately changed me, that’s why I am saying now I am not going to retire. I am not gonna retire no time soon, its just unfortunate that I got this injury. 

 I started hitting it up pretty good, I still gotta take care of my knee but I feel like a 25 year old again. My sex life changed, I was back to five times a night like when I was 25, straight up. I got stronger, lifting weights. I was never good at lifting weights but I was doing everything, pull ups and stuff, everything with my top half. I gained a lot of weight but I gained a lot of water as well, I never knew about testosterone putting weight on you like that. I had to cut weight [for the fight] and I cut 22 pounds out of the 30 I needed to cut, I just couldn’t make the rest. I couldn’t make the rest.
