If you need proof that banning TRT doesn’t just fix the issue of fighters taking junk then look no further than UFC 168 and Dennis Siver. Dennis Siver’s test results are back from UFC 168 and guess what? He’s in trouble.
UFC 168's Denis Siver has been flagged for hCG, NSAC in process of issuing temp suspension pending hearing.

Dennis Siver has tested positive for hCG, which is apparently a drug taken while cycling off of steroids to help mask it from drug tests. If that doesn’t sound hilariously deliberate in nature then I’m not sure what will. Denis Siver is under a temporary suspension until they make a decision for what his punishment will be. There were also questions about Siyar Bahadurzada’s test, but it came back clean.
Commission chairman Francisco Aguilar did confirm to me that Siyar Bahadurzada's B-sample came back negative, so he's all clear.
