Vitor Belfort has been accused since 2013 when all the controversy started, as he was granted an exemption to use TRT prior to facing Michael Bisping.
Now, as his fight with Luke Rockhold approaches, the former UFC champion is fielding questions left and right concerning his use of TRT as a former fighter who failed a drug test for steroids.
“The UFC always knew that I use, do not do it to cheat,” said Belfort, in an interview “I have medical monitoring and UFC also accompanies it. Never broken through anything, always acted cleanly. Do blood tests every week to equal the testosterone levels of a person my age.”
Belfort will meet Rockhold for UFC on Fox 8 on May 18 in Belfort’s home country, Brazil. The Brazilian MMA commission stated the fighter will be granted a TUE for the bout again.
“Many people are averse to treatment. I do not,” Belfort added. “I am in favor of people being open and fair in what they are doing.”
Why does everyone always feel they are taking advantage of the exemptions?
