Nevada State Athletic Commission Bans Testosterone Replacement Therapy For All Fighters

nevada

A few moments ago, the Nevada State Athletic Commission voted unanimously to ban therapeutic use exemptions for (TRT) testosterone replacement therapy effective immediately.

If any athlete has a TUE, no state commission will recognize it. Any fighter who competes in MMA, boxing and kickboxing will not be allowed to apply for an exemption going forward.

Some of the notables who have or had a TUE in the past include Vitor Belfort, Frank Mir, Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson.

Brett Okamoto from ESPN.com got comment from UFC President Dana White regarding the news.
