Belfort: I'm not ashamed of TRT use


TRT is a polarizing subject in mixed martial arts, those in favor claiming that it helps athletes who are in need of it to compete on a leveling playing field at the highest level of the sport, and detractors who think it's simply a legal way to cheat. Vitor Belfort openly admitted to his use of TRT and according to him, there's no problem with it: February, company president Dana White changed his own view on TRT from neutral to negative, declaring it as "a way for people to cheat," and saying he was "absolutely 100 percent against TRT." On one hand, it was the strongest anti-TRT statement to date. On the other, White's words came right around the time UFC announced Belfort vs. Rockhold as the UFC on FX 8 main event.

"That’s what he thinks, but I’m not doing anything illegal," Belfort says. "I think people have to have this choice, you know?"

Belfort says that he doesn't care that his name came out as a user, even though as a result, he gets asked about it in every single interview he does. Even though some people accuse him of cheating. That's a label that has dogged him before, and may stick to him until he hangs up his gloves. 

"It's no problem," he said. "I think they should release [the name] of everyone that's on it. For me, it's no problem. I'm not doing anything illegal, so I'm not ashamed of anything."

Multis are vitamins and minerals that you may not get from your food otherwise. They are like anything else, only use if needed. Most people take them without even bothering to have a checkup to see if you might be deficient... Best to plan around your food rather than pills.

trt = good, naked women on Internet = bad Just another reason to only watch the matches and not worry about the things athletes say in between matches.
