    Default Nevada Athletic Commission officially bans TRT

    http://www.fightline.com/nevada-athl...on-to-ban-trt/

    The Nevada Athletic Commission passed a motion to ban therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone replacement therapy during a meeting Thursday.

    Skip Avansino, commission of the NAC, made the motion to ban TRT, which was supported by Pat Lundvall. The NAC regulates all contests and exhibitions of unarmed combat within the state of Nevada, including licensure and supervision of promoters, boxers, kickboxers, MMA fighters, seconds, ring officials, managers and matchmakers.

    The commission voted unanimously to approve of the ban, and those that have previously received exemptions will see them expire.

    Lundvall, also stated that the NAC should push other states to follow suit in order to avoid states becoming magnets for those who want to use fighters with exemptions.

    So as other AC's follow suit, do we see all the current TRT guys retire? Fight without TRT?

    Wow, looks like it's not just new exemptions, but even those who were given a previous exemption. As well as declining to acknowledge exemptions given by other States (which makes sense I suppose).

    All it took was booking Vitor in Nevada? Why wasnt this done sooner?

    That's pretty big news!

    and UFC 173 (Weidman vs. Belfort) is in Vegas. No exemption for Vitor. If his body is softer this time around, it's highly suggestive that he was abusing and getting away with it.

    I wonder what this will do to the betting lines for Weidman Belfort (Weidman -200 while Belfort +160.) & Wandy Sonnen (Chael Sonnen -300 Wanderlei Silva +275 )?
