UFC/MMA Twitter reactions to NSAC's decision to ban Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

Todd Duffee: TRT User - USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes, Twitter is amazing for reactions. Today was one of those days!

Thursday (Feb. 27, 2014), Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) unanimously voted to ban the use of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) in combat sports. This decision not only applied to future applicants, but would also apply to those who have received exceptions for use in the past.

Needless to say, it's a pretty historic decision that hopefully will become the norm in mixed martial arts (MMA) around the world.

This decision is especially applicable because Chris Weidman is expected to defend his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight title against TRT proponent/villain Vitor Belfort at UFC 173 in May 2014.

When NSAC reached its decision, the Twitterverse exploded! Below are some of the best tweets of the day from fighters and MMA media.

UFC/MMA fighters seemed pretty happy with the decision!

Unfortunately, Vitor Belfort didn't tweet. But that's okay, because your boy predicted what he probably would have said ...

There were some other amazing tweets as well from MMA media ...

Oh and for those wondering about the UFC's stance, turns out that they're supporting the NSAC decision ...
