Bisping: Belfort will find another way to cheat


No one in mixed martial arts has been as poorly served by the use and abuse of Testosterone Replacement Therapy as has Michael Bisping. Three times he has lost to fighters on TRT:
Michael Bisping vs. Vitor Belfort • Loss • UFC on FX: Bisping vs. Belfort • KO at 1:37 of Round 2.
Michael Bisping vs.Chael Sonnen • Loss • UFC on FOX 2: Evans vs. Davis • Decision Unanimous Decision.   
Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson • Loss • UFC 100 • Loss • KO at 3:20 of Round 2.    

When the Nevada State Athletic Commission voted unanimously to ban TRT, Bisping expressed suspicions that Vitor Belfort would find a way around on the prohibition.

“Vitor’s a cheat, simple as that,” Bisping today told MMAjunkie. “He’ll go out and try to find another way to cheat. He’ll find another way of manipulating the system, or he’ll try.

“For a guy that talks about Jesus, you should want to step in there the way God intended him to be. He’s a hypocrite.”

“It’s nice to know they’re being branded the cheats they have always been. They’ve been chemically enhancing their bodies for quite some time, and I always took a hard stance against it. Fortunately, the UFC and the Nevada athletic commission are branding it for what it is; it’s an unfair advantage and whole thing is just a mockery to the whole concept of sport and fair competition.

“In the past, I’ve lost to three guys on TRT. They had an unfair advantage, and I’m just glad nobody is going to have to suffer a defeat at the hands of somebody on TRT.”

“The past is the past, of course. I never knew that my opponent was on TRT; it was only after the fight took place that I was privy to that knowledge. Being a competitor, I would have never turned down the fight anyway, but the fact that it’s not allowed, it kind of makes you wonder.”

Does Bisping want a rematch?

“Sure, I would love to fight Vitor. Give it a year, let him get all the juice out of his system, and then let’s do it again.”

it's possible he was on TRT then...seems like there are varying dates that claim when he started TRT, between 2011 and 2012. i i presume there would be an exemption filed as proof, tho...

So when he knocked Franklin and Akiyama silly while not on TRT, what was the excuse?

Does anybody know who Vitor is fighting next? Possibly winner of Machida/Weidman?

Good old Bisping, cracks me up. Let's have every fight the TRT guy won changed to a No Contest.

Bisping is one of the most exciting fighters out there at the moment. Stop saying stupid things to get attention.

I'd rather watch Vitor clean or otherwise than Bisping.
