Almost every drug tested sport allows the use of steroids and TRT if you get a therapeutic exemption. Sometimes they are necessary due to medical conditions and sometimes they're needed because the guy was already taking steroids illegally and he'll get severely sick without them. There's a lot of grey area in between so people shouldn't be so quick to judge.
I think there just needs to be a much more rigorous process in place to get a therapeutic exemption for these types of things. The Athletic Commissions need to have their own doctors testing the fighters, not letting the fighters bring in their own paid doctors. They also need to be monitored so there is no abuse involved. If you're taking TRT or steroids for medical reasons you should be constantly tested. Of course, all of that costs money and I'm sure they don't have nearly enough to do it.
