Just makes JDS that much cooler for putting a whooping on someone who needed that to compete.

The acceptance of testosterone replacement therapy in mixed martial arts continues to be a growing issue, and yet another very high profile UFC fighter has been approved for the treatment.

According to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer, Mir applied, and received a therapeutic use exemption for, the treatment for his fight with Junior dos Santos at UFC 146.*

Kizer told MMATorch that Mir applied for a therapeutic use exemption in March, citing an abnormally low testosterone level, and has complied with the tests required by the NSAC to date. That includes passing the post fight drug test from the event as was reported earlier this afternoon.

Mir ultimately lost to dos Santos in their Heavyweight Championship bout on the card last weekend, with the Champion stopping him in the second round by TKO.
So they took a TRT user of the main event (Overeem) and replaced him with another one (Mir)....... Ohhh so that's how thing work. What a joke.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Mir was within the allowed levels, Overeem wasn't.

Not really a surprise. It was speculated that Mir was using steroids when he put on like 25lbs of muscle in between the Carwin fights...the dude got huge. Everyone already knew he was roiding.


MMA is pretty much a joke now.

There is a reason they need TRT in the first place ..... Steroids.

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.
