B.J. Penn is not usually known for taking to social media to express his thoughts. In fact, if you follow him on Twitter @bjpenndotcom, you know his account is mainly used as an outlet to get the latest articles from his website out to the masses.

But yesterday afternoon, Penn took to Twitter to bash the whole concept of testosterone replacement therapy.

Ok, so Penn obviously is not a fan of this medical treatment that fighters including Nate Marquardt and Chael Sonnen have utilized. But Penn didn't stop there. Apparently, Penn believes that TRT has no medical benefit at all. Judging from the following tweet, it seems that Penn thinks that it's all about gaining a competitive edge.

Now, throughout his tweets, Penn never made reference to anyone particular. But given the fact they were shortly sent out after Nate Marquardt's appearance on MMA Hour, questions will surely be raised—especially after he sent this tweet out.

But Penn didn't stop there. Despite the fact that TRT is a widely accepted medical treatment, he seems to believe otherwise.

Now while I'm not a doctor or a specialist on performance-enhancing drugs, it would seem difficult to compare a legitimate medical therapy to the use of illegal steroids. But that is another topic for another day.

To end his Twitter rant, Penn took a shot, of sorts, at fighters who decide to use TRT. Take note Marquardt, Sonnen and others.
