Dr. Johnny Benjamin, the author of "Ask the Fight Doc" on, doesn't seem to believe Chael Sonnen's positive drug-test defense of hypogonadism.

In his latest column, the good doctor wrote:

"Some common reasons for significantly low testosterone levels in an otherwise healthy young man are pituitary-gland issues, primary gonadal issues and/or side effects of anabolic steroid use. As an FYI, pituitary dysfunction was ruled out in Sonnen's case.

So, that leaves two likely choices – with one being far more likely than the other. "

Hmmm, interesting. Read the entire piece here.
