Belfort: The UFC always knew I was on TRT

 

Many feel Belfort has been sketchy regarding his usage of the treatment; however, "The Phenom" claims he is being drug tested on a weekly basis and that his employers knew all along he had a therapeutic use exception (TUE) for TRT.

He explains to Brazilian news outlet TATAME:

"The UFC always knew that I use, do not do it to cheat. 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. Many people are averse to treatment. I do not. I am in favor of people being open and fair in what they are doing,"

Questions about Belfort using TRT came about last January prior to his UFC on FX 7 match up with Michael Bisping when the Brazilian gave some sketchy answers to ESPN when the topic of TRT was brought up.

It's established per what I've read (for those confused) that he can't fight in Vegas BTW.

Part of it had to do with the fan outcry though. I think a lot of people finally could literally see the physical effects it was having on his body and kind of made people worried about how bad the trt stuff could get.

I'm all for TRT but not for guys who have gotten busted for juice and need it because of years of steroid abuse. We will never see Belfort fight in Vegas again.

Belforts old trainer was Curtis leffler a known roid abuser who eventually passed away from a bad synthol shot. He def got Belfort geared up at the time. Remember what Vitor used to look like when he was 19 yeah natural lol
