REPORT: Nevada Commission Bans TRT Statewide


The Nevada State Athletic Commission has reportedly banned any and all TUE’s for TRT in their state.

In other words, a lot of UFC fighters can’t fight in Vegas while using Testosterone Replacement Therapy. And that’s effective immediately.

Vitor Belfort will not be able to use his traditional treatment in the UFC 173 main event against Chris Weidman, Vegas resident Frank Mir will no longer be able to fight in his hometown and several other fighters like Dan Henderson and Ben Rothwell will also have to put Nevada on their blacklist.

The question here is, what will the rest of the world do? Nevada is often considered the gold standard for a sanctioning body and that means that most states tend to follow their lead.

Is TRT about to be a thing of the past?

I personally like a high on TRT, god-fearing Vitor Belfort and a near 50-year old Hendo H-bomb! This is no doubt a major blow  to some of our favorite athletes in the game today, but is it a step in the right direction?
