White: We aren't hiding Belfort in Brazil


Vitor Belfort openly admits to adhering to a regime of testosterone replacement therapy and has recently fought his bouts in Brazil. However, the two have nothing to do with each other, so says UFC President Dana White:

"They say [Vitor] can't fight here because of the TRT thing and that is complete bullshit. Vitor Belfort can fight here, he can fight in Vegas, he can fight in any of these places. Whether they give him TRT or they don't. It's not a given that he has to give up the treatment in Vegas. The guy has been busted before. He's had some issues and he's going to have to go before the athletic commission and they would decide what they are going to do."

"That doesn't mean that he can't fight in Vegas or that Vitor Belfort is banned from Vegas and something crazy is going to happen. Or that we're hiding him in Brazil because he's on TRT. That is stupid, stupid Internet shit. Vitor Belfort is a big draw in Brazil so he fights in Brazil. Same thing with Aldo and a lot of these other Brazilian champions. If any of you have ever been to Brazil, Brazilians want to see Brazilians kick other people's asses, not other Brazilian's asses."

You guys are missing the bright side to this, and that is the fact of Hendo now getting back on the TrTrain himself! His last fight was clean, and coincidently boring! This will bring more fireworks at least!

I think most people saying that realoze he CAN fight in Nevada, but that he will not be allowed any presencebof steroids (synthetic testosterone). It just easier to say he cant fight there. That being said.....what do you know, they are booking him in Brazil again...
