When the Nevada State Athletic Commission voted unanimously to end the use of Testosterone Replacement Therapy in mixed martial arts, the sport responded with complete unanimity in hailing the move, via Twitter.

I support this.
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
Brett Cooper @BrettCoopermma
TRT gone, about damn time
Marcelino Evil @KCBanditMMA
I actually had some low T issues last fall. Doc tld me to sleep more & workout less. Not really what I wanted to hear but i feel much better
Kenny Florian @kennyflorian
I've said it before but getting rid of TRT is the right move for the sport
Tim Kennedy @TimKennedyMMA
The Nevada State Athletic Commission banned testosterone. It is a great day for the sport. I hope all states follow suit.
Joe Lauzon @JoeLauzon
I’m okay with the Nevada Commission banning TRT… But if they start checking ice cream levels I am going to be really upset.
Tom Lawlor @FilthyTomLawlor
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.
Vinny Magalhaes @VinnyMMA
TRT is finally banned, now we can only hope that 1 day we will have Olympic level drug screening in MMA. So we can catch the EPO, HGH users

I'm happy about the decision to ban TRT let's see if it makes a difference to anyone's performance.

Great job by the NSAC in getting rid of TUE's for TRT. There is no way the taking of Testosterone by an athlete should be condoned by an AC
Joe Rogan @joerogan
Nevada just banned the use of synthetic testosterone for fighters. Shit just got real. Literally.
Brian Stann @BrianStann
Very happy to see TRT banned, absolutely a ridiculous idea to start with and a major factor of my personal retirement from fighting
Stefan Struve @StefanStruve
•Great decision by the NAC to ban TRT, big step forward for our sport. Lets see who don't want to fight in Vegas anymore now.
•Next step is find a way to make it impossible to cheat with PEDs for anybody in the UFC by testing very regularly.
•IMO if you get caught for PED you should be fired and never be let back to compete, cause in that case you are no athlete but just a cheater
Ike Vallie-Flagg @IKEVF
I'm already chewing on bulls testicles seeing what that does to my test levels
