Dana White Says They’re Not Hiding Vitor Belfort in Brazil Due to TRT Use

Dana White has often been very vocal when it comes to testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) use in the UFC, chastising fighters for using the therapy. The fighters who apply for testosterone use exemption (TUE) for a fight are often shoved in to the limelight as we wait for word to come down on whether or not they have been approved to use TRT prior to their next bout.

In the case of 36-year-old Vitor Belfort, White says that the fact that three out of his last four bouts have been in Brazil doesn’t mean that they’re hiding him there to take advantage of the lax legal parameters (on this issue at least) of Brazil:

“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.”

Belfort’s only bout in the past two years that hasn’t taken place in Brazil was a short notice title fight against Jon Jones in Toronto Ontario, Canada. White insists that the rumors that Belfort is essentially trapped in Brazil when it comes to bouts, is just unsubstantiated internet nonsense:

“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.”

As for his next bout, Belfort is rumored to be taking on fellow brazilian Lyoto Machida in Las Vegas, Nevada at UFC 167, although that fight has not been made official.

    Vitor vs silva and then vitor of now looks hes
    Back at like 30 now. Vitor looked sick back in the day cuz of took roids and now cuz of trt. Pretty fuckn obvious.

  2. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    I wonder why the Nate Rioder, Get Rid if Fitch Dude has never commented on Belfort’s long history of steroid use? Must be a reason….lol.

  3. Nate "THE ROID CHEAT" Marquardt says:

    What I think is funny is 99.9% of all fans are crying about Belfort being on TRT even though he is the ONLY fighter who is on TRT that is being tested on a regular basis.

    Also Sonnen was busted dead to rights for having the highest testosterone level ever recorded while on TRT which is no different thank full on steroid abuse yet he gets a pass from fans and is allowed to continue JUICING up as much as he pleases between fights and NEVER once has been surprise or randomly tested. Fans need to start realizing that its easier for fighters to cheat without a TRT/TUE because they are off the radar of the commission. That is why Nate “THE ROID CHEAT” Marquardt gave up his TRT and announced to world he was magically cured of LOW T after abusing steroids hi entire MMA career. (WHICH BTW is MEDICALLY IMPOSSIBLE) so that makes all of you IDIOTS for buying into Nate’s outright lies.

    If you don’t believe me just ask your own private doctor if a 35 year old athlete who has been busted 3 times for abusing steroids and who was on massive levels of INJECTABLE Testostrone for over a year can just go off testosterone and build back his massive physique and compete at same levl as he did when he was JUICING. They will laugh at you for being so stupid thinking its possible without Nate using HGH, EPO’s, any other steroid such as Conte’s undetectable steroid known as “CLEAR” You see all your hate towards Belfort is really stupid considering all the fighters who have said easily 80-90% of MMA fighters are using PED’s. All Marquardt did was get all the IDIOT fans off his back and the commissions and Dana by LYING and saying he was magically cured of having NO BALLS after a career of abusing steroids. Sorry people it doesn’t work like that once a steroid abuser like Marquardt ruins his balls its allover and the only way he can ever workout or train to fight is with PED’s plain and simple

    Just read what the “fight Doctor has to say”

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Belfort has been one of the most egregious steroid users his whole career, why aren’t you on a rant over that??? Is it bias? That’s cool if it is? It just makes EVERY SINGLE post you have ever typed on here about how much you hate cheating roiders COMPLETELY NULL and hypocritical..So if that’s the case then STFU cuz your feigned outrage isn’t real.

He told me he gargles MBA dicks for gas money (a dime a dozen) b/c Jesus told him to. ahaha He clearly has no job, otherwise he wouldn’t be blogging (trolling) for 8 hours a day on here. His whole scoop is conflict, it makes him feel like a big man, b/c in real life you just know he’s a complete loser.

    GreAtest moments in mma, Fitch gets ko’d by a wrestler, Fitch gets fitched by maia, Fitch gets ko’d again

  6. 757 says:

    Wow Gargoyle what’s up with you these days? Vitor was busted in 2006 for sure. How many other times? What I’m sorry ….no facts on how many that was? Egregious is not once. I don’t care how many times people think he used….it’s what can you prove….no more that’s how many. Lighten up I think in times to come you are going to realize how many other people, even people that you never would have expected will come out and admit that they used. C’mon man you are way smarter than allot of the people that comment here. Don’t turn in to that.

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Hey Bro, I respect you. I assume everybody has done some kind of enhancement, PED, etc. at one time or another. These comments are just for certain dudes who are such hypocrites. I know I don’t always say this and I am biased as fukc, but I do admire Belfort and all these top guys, they are all just good. The banter is just the fun back and forth. Yah most of what I hear is definitely heresay, but when when DW implements weekly TRT testing after Belfort vs Bisping, then there are few dots that can be connected. Thanks for the heads up though, I’ll keep it in context.

  7. Again.. says:

    Smh Gaygoyle hating on Belfort again. I click on these knowing to see shit from him now. Belfort’s not a cheater! Fucken getting a TUE is not fucken cheating especially if he’s within the allowed limit!! Chael’s ratio was that of 17 men and your callin him less of a cheater suck a fat dick!

  8. Dan Jenkins says:

    I respect Vitor Belfort a lot I appreciate what he’s done in the sport and for him to come back after such a tragedy in his life is admirable. But TRT in my opinion IS cheating no matter who uses it, to me if you need to take a un natural substance (man made) to keep on a level playing field and in some cases beyond, then you need to start thinking about pulling the pin. At the end of the day it’s not my job/career on the line facing a legal roider, I just watch the fights but it seems a little unfair to those trying to get ahead doing it the RIGHT way
