Earlier today Chris Weidman learned that the NSAC had banned TRT, which would have had implications for his UFC 173 title defense:

"This is an amazing day for the sport," Weidman told MMAFighting.com. "This is something that I've wanted to see happen for quite some time. TRT was and has always been cheating, and I'm glad Nevada finally recognized that, especially since I'm about to fight there against a known TRT user. Hopefully, every other athletic commission follows because this was long overdue.

"If you need TRT to fight, you shouldn't fight. Period."

read entire article...

Of course the comments above were spoken before tonight's huge announcement that Vitor Belfort was withdrawing from his UFC 173 bout with Weidman.

Weidman will face Lyoto Machida and will now fight an athlete who is not, nor has ever been, on an exemption to use testosterone replacement therapy.

Weedman has seemed scared of Super Vitor since that fight was first announced. I'm almost hoping now that Machida kicks his face off and then defends the title against Vitor in Brazil.

this

I disagree.  Machida is a much bigger threat to his belt than Vitor.  I love Vitor but he has a tendency to give up once he's put on his back.  He seems to be much more prone to submissions than Machida as well.  Not to mention Machida's wrestling and trip takedowns are light years ahead of Vitor.  But I don't see Weidman worried about fighting Machida.

"It's an amazing day for MMA. The 10 fighters on TRT out of the UFC's 450 man roster, who have a combined losing record, will no longer be able to get their exemptions. Amazing. More importantly, this means the guy I'm fighting who has been KOing everyone in the first round will hopefully be depleted and slow due to abnormally low testosterone. Amazing!!"

Just another example of a young kid talking out of his ass.  He will change his tune just like everyone else once he ages, and his levels drop.

Definitely an amazing day for him.

He just dodged the most dangerous killer in MMA currently.

Now he has an easier title defense.

We will see how amazing it is when all of these young guys peak and T levels begin to drop... Phone Post 3.0

He must feel 100% better knowing he isn't forced to eat head kicks and hot punches in his first title defense. Phone Post 3.0
