Frank Mir was on Testosterone Replacement Therapy ahead of UFC 146.



 Josh gross elaborates:
Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer confirmed a report on Friday that the state regulatory body approved Mir, 33, for an exemption because he exhibited "abnormally low" testosterone levels.
 According to Kizer, Mir and the fighter's doctor informed the commission that the former UFC heavyweight champion began TRT treatments in early 2012. Kizer said Mir told the UFC in February that he was undergoing treatments for low testosterone. Mir first notified Kizer of his prescription on March 27 after he and five others scheduled to compete at UFC 146 were requested to undergo random drug tests that day in Las Vegas.
The March test nabbed Alistair Overeem with an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio of 14:1. Mir's test came back clean, with an approximate T/E ratio of 1:1. NSAC standards allow for licensees to compete with a 6:1 ratio.
