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.
