It may be an unfair upper-hand, cheating, an advantage but it is legal. Testosterone replacement therapy is almost becoming a staple in the world of MMA. The latest fighter to gain approval for the controversial treatment was Frank Mir. His approval came prior to his heavyweight title bout against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146.

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer confirmed the approval on Friday.
The exemption from the Commission is only granted if the prescription is given by a liscensed physician. The TRT is given to athletes who suffer from a “medical condition” called low T.

Prior to his fight with Dos Santos, Mir underwent all of the pre-testing required by the commission and his testosterone levels met the prerequisites it takes to compete in the Octagon.

TRT is more than a hot button topic, due to the number of fighters that are participating in the treatment of the therapy.

There have been an abundance of fighters that have recently admitted to using the controversial therapy, including Rampage, Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen.
