When the UFC went to Brazil in January, Vitor Belfort received a therapeutic use exemption for testosterone replacement therapy into his bout with Michael Bisping. That event was overseen by CABMMA, a new regulatory body in Brazil that worked in tandem with the UFC to put on the event.

In a report from Brazil's Tatame.com, the CABMMA medical director claimed that Belfort's TRT approval was based off of medical tests done by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. It was their approval, he claimed, that allowed Belfort to use the controversial treatment for the event in Brazil.

However, NSAC executive director Keith Kizer says Belfort has not been approved for testosterone use in Nevada, and given his past steroid test failure, likely would not be approved in Nevada in the future.

"People in the media saying Vitor Belfort has a TUE from me, of course he doesn't," Kizer made clear in an interview with Damon Martin at BleacherReport.com.

"I don't see Vitor Belfort getting a TRT exemption from us. I really don't and I feel kind of bad for him in some ways because if he has learned from his mistakes and now he's trying to do it the right way and his levels are low with the treatment good for him and I hope he is doing that."

Maybe he can just fight in Brazil for the remainder of his career.

I wonder where Vitors religious views and his cheating stands with the man. They don't make good bedfellows.

He's a puppet and has literally no power. 

 

(edit) just saw you got voted down. I countered it. 

 


He's the only face I can keep asking things like "Why Cecil and Adalaide have no job accountability"

 

Thanks for the vote up

Does anyone else find it odd that low T levels affects like 1% of the global male population and all of a sudden many of these pro MMA fighters come out of the woodwork claiming they need TRT??

He'll just ignore them like he always does. the council members are the ones we have to harass. 


and I guess they probably hide, for fear of the bile someone like me wants to dump on them for the crap they refuse to change

Source please. 


He might be confused with this:

 

Age-related loss of testosterone, on the other hand, is gradual, dropping by about 1% to 1.5% per year beginning at age 40. The low testosterone levels that result can leave men feeling less energetic, less self-assured, and less manly.

Kizer's panties are in a twist because when he tested positive the first time Nevada gave him a suspension that he didn't follow. He went overseas and fought. Nate Marquardt had tested positive before and he was granted a TUE.

Yup, Leviticus 20:28 - Thou shall not use anabolic steroids without NSAC permission.

So it's ok for damn near everyone to use techniques to cut ridiculous amounts of weight through hydration to circumvent the weight divisions and the purpose of them - potentially harming their own bodies in the process...and to do so in plain site.

And it's ok to take TRT, with the widespread potential for abuse there, as long as you're levels are within satisfactory range during the usually pre-scheduled tests. Oh, apparently having high levels isn't so bad either since they let Chael get away with it and keep his TRT exemption.

But if you tested positive for steroids 6 years ago, you can't have a TRT exemption, because then the cheating is out in the open too much?

Got it.

Well, when I look for honesty in combat sports, I look to Keith Kizer. The man has never told a fib and is as honest as an Amish piss test. I hope you note the sarcasm because its being laid on pretty thick.

I like how Kizer says "people are saying I gave him a TUE". He doesn't even vote after the hearings. Telling his biggest customer they can't bring one of their biggest stars to his state is a real smart move. Shocking that all these state governments are bankrupt.

Kizer needs Zuffa much more than Zuffa needs Kizer. Zuffa has 47 other states to chose from and about 20 other countries. Kizer has about 3 promoters to pay his salary and Zuffa provides the majority of the cash that lines his pocket.
