As one might have imagined, the outpouring of messages on social media after news broke that the Nevada Athletic Commission had voted to ban the use of TRT going forward were in abundance.
The commission voted unanimously to stop allowing any exemptions for TRT in MMA fights – and all other combat sports – was in support.
Here’s a few of the more noteworthy Tweets sent out Thursday afternoon:
So TRT is now officially banned in Nevada. U could argue I only have one loss on my record. After I beat Kennedy I want my shot at the title

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

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

Nevada just banned the use of synthetic testosterone for fighters. Shit just got real. Literally.
