Go and rewatch the inquiry. Sonnen wasn't suspended for using TRT. He was suspended for failing to report his use of TRT. That's hardly classified information.
"Urinalysis conducted after his loss to Anderson Silva showed Sonnen had an unallowably high testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratio of 16.9:1 at the time of the fight. An average man has a T/E ratio of 1:1, and testing bodies may allow a ratio as high as 4:1 for athletes
. In other words, Sonnen's T/E ratio was nearly 17 times than a normal man's
and over four times the allowed maximum for an athlete
. He was fined $2,500 and suspended for one year (until September 2, 2011) by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC). His scheduled rematch with Silva was subsequently cancelled."
Yep perfectly legal in how he used it, and it was just a paperwork misunderstanding
