Belfort: My testosterone levels were low against Henderson


Fairly or unfairly, Vitor Belfort has become the face of the TRT controversy in mixed martial arts. Belfort is performing the best of his life, but is still adamant that is TRT regime just keeps him at a normal level:

"My (testosterone) levels were low in my last fight," Belfort told during a media scrum in his gym in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. "I have all the exams to prove that I have a disease. It’s simple."

Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission’s medical director Dr. Marcio Tannure explained to that one of Belfort's pre-fight tests were below the normal limits, but that's "legal."

"Chael Sonnen has a license to fight in Vegas, and I’m doing everything by the book," Belfort said. "I have all the exams to prove it."

Excellent article opl3sa, VTFU for that!Funny how a pitcher can get surgery to swap tendons in his throwing arm to drastically improve his pitching, but TRT at just 6:1 is frowned upon.

For anyone interested in reading and learning a thing or two, rather than think they know it all...For anyone interested in listening to what someone else has to say about the topic, instead of to come here and try to explain their views to everyone else...

lol @ trying to imply that there's not a huge difference in those 2 pictures. He may not have cheated, but you can absolutely notice the improvement in physique/vascularity/fat loss.
