Today the Nevada State Athletic Commission made a huge decision which will most definitely have a huge impact on the UFC; banning TRT. We’ve already seen that Dana White is in support of this decision, but now the UFC has issued a statement in regards to NSAC’s decision to ban TRT today. It seems that the UFC is very much on board with the banning of TRT.
“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.”
