For news of the year i think we need to add TRT/TUE (testosterone based stuff really)

I know you could argue that it's covered under PEDs, but in my opinion it's garnered enough attention to be nominated on it's own.

Yeah, I guess my story is about the sort of logic behind stripping Diaz's license because of medicinal marijuana while Chael Sonnen is permitted to use TRT. Or even how Alistair Overeem was caught and punished for doing the same thing that Dan Henderson does legally. Maybe it should be retitled The Rules of Doping.
