Very happy to see TRT banned, absolutely a ridiculous idea to start with and a major factor of my personal retirement from fighting

The Nevada State Athletic Commission banned testosterone. It is a great day for the sport. I hope all states follow suit. #TRT

I’m okay with the Nevada Commission banning TRT… But if they start checking ice cream levels I am going to be really upset. #MMA #UFC @ufc

No more TRT? Good.Sports shouldn't be on a level playing field based on genetics and hard work. This is a huge step in the right direction.

I don't understand Bisping's comment. Is he saying Rashad or Wandy is on TRT?

Bisping said "U could argue I only have one loss on my record," meaning that everyone he fought and lost to except one person was on TRT. Vitor was on TRT, Chael was on TRT, Dan Henderson was on TRT. But Bisping also lost to Wandy and Rashad. So which one is supposedly on TrT?

no. Just that those decision losses were very close fights that pretty much could have gone either way. So, if you give him his 3 razor thin decision losses, disregard his controversial decision win over Matt Hamill, nullify his loss to Vitor because of his, now illegal, TRT use, he has only lost one fight.
Next he'll make the case that the H-bomb didn't count either because Hendo was TRTing, and he'll be undefeated. lol

Why would he bring up razor thin decisions when discussing TRT? Bisping's tweet was in response to TRt being banned specifically, so I think it is pretty obvious that he is referring to the losses he incurred at the hands of TRT users.

I think that is exactly what he is saying. I think he is saying this proves that his fights vs Hendo, Chael, and Vitor are moot because they were using TRT. Maybe he meant to say two instead of one.

Ok but they dont normally test for trt use if I remember right. Its not like TRT is not already on the PED list, its just that now they have stopped giving exemptions for it.
