Henderson denied exemption for TRT at UFC 161
The Winnipeg Manitoba Boxing Commission today revealed that all drug tests came back clean and that no fighters were granted therapautic use exemptions, which is interesting considering Dan Henderson had previously been given one for TRT in other juridstictions:
According to an email received by Bleacher Report from the Manitoba Combative Sports Commission, who oversaw the June 15 event, a total of 10 fighters from the card were tested and all returned with negative results.
There were a total of 22 fighters competing that night, so just under half were drug tested by the commission.
In addition to the drug test results, the commission also verified that no fighters on the UFC 161 fight card received a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) prior to the event. TUEs are given to fighters for a number of medical reasons, most notably known in MMA for competitors who use testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
