If Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva were a high-profile pair of opponents, the UFC middleweight champion and his next opponent, Vitor Belfort, are making out to be nothing to glance over.

Built into the hype for their fight – which has been confirmed, though a date and location is yet undetermined – is the drama over testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), an issue that has seen more and more press over the past year, and that continues to arise each time Belfort fights.

In a recent appearance on “The MMA Hour,” Weidman called out the top contender, saying he would best Belfort regardless of the challenger’s use of TRT.
I feel like I’m on another level,” said Weidman.  “I think it’s a great fight for me.  I think I can beat him no matter what he’s on.  I actually take more privilege if I’m beating up a juice head.  If that’s what you consider him.

This statement, like these two, undoubtedly show just how big a part the issue of Belfort’s TRT use will play in the build-up to this middleweight championship bout.
