Belfort: TRT makes it a fair match for me

 

Vitor Belfort has openly admitted to prescribing to testosterone replacement therapy and the media and fans are split on whether or not it should be allowed. However, Belfort believes it only evens the playing field:

The TRT, the shot just gets you level in the system. So, the bottom line my level is always lower than a regular guy. I never go [over] the limit, the level. So, what I'm trying to do, I'm just trying to be fair in my career against my opponent. The TRT is just something my body cannot produce. I'm doing the treatment with doctors, with bloodwork, so everything's pretty black and white. But, all of guys are out there doing a lot of stuff but they don't get caught because they don't have blood.

Are you talking to me? If so, my avatar is BJ Penn as a Ninja Turtle but I appreciate you judging me based on my avatar all the same. And I didn't come on this thread to whine about his TRT use. You even quoted me where I literally said I don't blame him for his TRT use because it's legal for him to do so (when he fights in Brazil). I'm saying why the fuck WOULDN'T he do it? Shit, I would.

"Maybe someone should start an organization where every washed up fighter who burnt up their natural test can ALL use TRT. "They did, it's called the UFC. And Bellator. In fact can you think of an org "where every washed up fighter who burnt up their natural test" CAN'T all use TRT? Because it's up to the ACs, and they all allow it now, and the orgs that aren't subject to commissions most likely do no testing of any kind in the first place.

Completely IDIOTIC statement!!! If dude cant hang with everyone else without artificial testosterone, maybe he should start a different career!! Just because he abused his body with anabolics back in the day shouldnt give him a pass to CHEAT now!!!! Maybe someone should start an organization where every washed up fighter who burnt up their natural test can ALL use TRT.

  I don't blame Vitor either. MLB players and NFL players have proven that top notch athletes will take actions that are against their respective sports' bilaws in order to gain an advantage. So why wouldn't an MMA fighter do what is actually ALLOWED by his sport in order to gain an advantage?
