Frank Mir Was Allowed To Use TRT Before Fight With Junior Dos Santos

Frank Mir, who was unsuccessful in his attempt to claim the UFC heavyweight title from Junior dos Santos at UFC 146, was allowed a therapeutic use exemption for testosterone replacement therapy, according to a report by Larry Pepe of Pro MMA Radio.

Pepe confirmed the news on his Twitter account, writing, “NSAC’s Keith Kizer confirmed to me that Frank Mir met all requirements for & received TUE for TRT for UFC 146 fight against JDS.”

Mir had to pass several pre- and post-fight blood tests conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission. Pepe reported that he passed all of them.
