Less than an hour ago, we reported that the Nevada State Athletic Commission banned (TUE) therapeutic use exemptions for (TRT) testosterone replacement therapy effective immediately. A short time ago, UFC President Dana White released a statement to the press.

“The Ultimate Fighting Championship fully supports the decision made today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission regarding the immediate termination of therapeutic use exemptions (TUE) for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). We believe our athletes should compete based on their natural abilities and on an even playing field. We also intend to honor this ruling in international markets where, due to a lack of governing bodies, the UFC oversees regulatory efforts for our live events. We encourage all athletic commissions to adopt this ruling.”

Will other country and state athletic commissions follow the lead of Nevada?
