    LAS VEGAS -- In a monumental move, the Nevada State Athletic Commission banned testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) from combat sports -- including boxing and mixed martial arts -- on Thursday.

    The ruling, which passed by a unanimous vote, eliminates future applications for a therapeutic use exemption for TRT. It also denies the use of TRT to any fighter who had previously received permission for its use from the state.

    “In my opinion, medical opinion, and this is my opinion, yes, I would assume that if someone had tested positive to performance enhancing drugs or is known to have used performance enhancing drugs, I would assume that’s the cause of their low testosterone,” said Dr. Trainor.

    “I certainly don’t want to reward people that have used PEDs [when] that’s what is causing their hypogonadism. I certainly don’t want to reward them by saying here’s a testosterone exemption.”

    Is this the beginning of the end of TRT in all sports. NSAC is pretty "prestigious".
