http://mmajunkie.com/2014/01/frank-mir-receives-trt-exemption-for-ufc-169-fight-with-alistair-overeem/

Frank Mir has been granted a therapeutic-use exemption for testosterone-replacement therapy for his fight with Alistair Overeem this Saturday at UFC 169.

The former heavyweight titleholder also received an exemption for his UFC 164 bout with Barnett, which he lost via controversial first-round knockout this past August. That was the second time that Mir has publicly received a TUE for one of his fights. He was also granted one for his UFC 146 championship contest against dos Santos in Las Vegas.

So that's the new conditioning he was talking about that he didn't get to show against Barnett.

The guy that could gain muscle just by looking at weights would be a welterweight without steroids? Poor guy. Phone Post 3.0

Mir has never tested positive for steroids once. I'm not saying he has not used them, but he is not a proven cheat.

Bellator doesn't even drug test period. For anything.

That would explain Doug Marshall failing his last test in Bellator......idiot. Phone Post 3.0

Lol, and that makes it okay that they've held over 70 events before initiating any kind of testing period? Yeah, those Indian Casinos - real stingent regulation. Love your schtick, you are doing the opposite of what you intend.. people hate Bellator because of you. Shame. I still enjoy the good fights, but you really are not doing that company any favors.

I said Frank Mir has never tested positive, fool. BellatorFan was "proven wrong" by calling Mir a busted steroid user when he is not. The only reason Marshall failed his test is because that event was actually regulated by an athletic commission - care to find how many of Bellator's 100+ events were sanctioned? Almost all of them have been held on Indian Casino grounds, and they continue to be... You figure out of 100+ events with over 16 fighters per card, you could point to more than Doug Marshall.

BellatorFan is trying to make it seem like the org he schills for is squeaky clean and the UFC is full of drug abusers. Yeah, okay. I like both orgs. Facts are just facts.

I'm confused as to why Mir needs an exception now and not early on in his career?

Is the Reem being allowed an TUE? To allow a fair contest between 2 evenly matched athletes......
.....I laughed when I typed this.... But I'm punch drunk and 40 :-(
Hopefully we get to see a barnstorming bout between these two.
How about
1. Mir by KO
2. Reem by sub

remember when Mir put on a large amount of muscle in just a few months when Lesnar was around. How was he able to do that with low testosterone

Exactly. Great point.

If Mir's got a TUE then I'd love to see the Reem with one Phone Post 3.0

Mir needs to step it up. His last trt fight or two he looked bad. If you use 250 mg shot 1x week its great, but most doctors are idiots and give you bi weekly shots or monthly. Better fighting with low natural testosterone than suffering through that low injection rate......if anyone wanted my 2 cents. Phone Post 3.0

Hi Idiot,

 

Please clarify as to when Mir was "busted" for steroids?

 

Regards,

 

P.S Try harder.

Just ban TRT already. If you have low testosterone, then oh well, deal with it. Low levels or not, some people just simply win the genetic lottery (Jon Jones, Cain) and will kick your ass regardless of how low or high your T levels are.
