Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen are free to compete in Nevada. The two fighters and pseudo-teammates had their futures brought into doubt when the Nevada State Athletic Commission banned the controversial Testosterone Replacement Therapy not long ago, but both men were licensed by the same commission today. Both received unanimous votes from the commission.
Henderson (30-11) stated at the hearing that he had no issues throughout his camp. He is set to face off with Daniel Cormier at in May. He had competed for years with a TRT TUE but competed without it at UFC 161 against Rashad Evans. He lost that bout by split decision.
Sonnen (28-14-1) is set to compete in an oft-delayed bout with Wanderlei Silva at UFC 175 in July. It was his TRT use that sent the controversial treatment into the spotlight following a positive test for elevated testosterone in the aftermath of his UFC 117 bout against Anderson Silva in California. He expressed serious reservations about fighting without TRT in the past, but seems to be handling it well now.
