LAS VEGAS -- Nevada state regulators on Thursday banned mixed martial arts
fighters from using testosterone replacement therapy. The Nevada Athletic
Commission voted unanimously in Las Vegas to quit granting therapeutic use
exemptions for fighters undergoing the so-called TRT. "We just decided to say,
Lets ban them as a whole," commission Chairman Francisco Aguilar told The
Associated Press. "No one was grandfathered in and no new applications will be
accepted." The decision by the commission that regulates boxing and mixed
martial arts in Nevada came several weeks after the Association of Ringside
Physicians labeled so-called "unmerited testosterone" a health risk to combat
sports athletes and their opponents. The association had said testosterone
replacement therapy for participants in combat sports might create "an unfair
advantage contradictory to the integrity of sport." UFC President Dana White
said he also supported a ban. Aguilar said the Nevada ban would directly affect
two fighters -- veteran stars Chael Sonnen and Frank Mir. Two other UFC fighters
who in recent years have been given exemptions by other athletic commissions to
use synthetic testosterone are Dan Henderson and Vitor Belfort. The exemptions
were granted for medical reasons including a deficiency in naturally occurring
testosterone caused by hypogonadism -- a diminished function of the gonads.
Aguilar called the medical condition so rare that the four-member Nevada
commission decided to vote for consistency. "It gets us further along the line
of knowing the fighters are clean," he said. "The challenge is going to be for
organizations to determine what jurisdictions allow TRT and which ones dont."
