Earlier today Chris Weidman learned that the NSAC had banned TRT, which would have had implications for his UFC 173 title defense:
"This is an amazing day for the sport," Weidman told MMAFighting.com. "This is something that I've wanted to see happen for quite some time. TRT was and has always been cheating, and I'm glad Nevada finally recognized that, especially since I'm about to fight there against a known TRT user. Hopefully, every other athletic commission follows because this was long overdue.
"If you need TRT to fight, you shouldn't fight. Period."

Of course the comments above were spoken before tonight's huge announcement that Vitor Belfort was withdrawing from his UFC 173 bout with Weidman.
Weidman will face Lyoto Machida and will now fight an athlete who is not, nor has ever been, on an exemption to use testosterone replacement therapy.
