Luke Rockhold: Vitor Needs TRT Because He Is Lacking Something

Former Strikeforce middleweight kingpin Luke Rockhold has remained very vocal on his opinion surrounding the highly controversial issue of Testerone Replacement Therapy, a treatment that his opponent at UFC on FX 8 this weekend has such an exemption for. Since the Therapeutic Use Exemption was enacted last year, several fighters have gone public with their exemptions, but not without plenty of scrutiny.

The man Rockhold faces this saturday in Santa Catarina, Brazil, Vitor ‘The Phenom’ Belfort, is one of several fighters on the UFC roster with a TUE, and thus can legally use steroids to ‘battle the effects of low testosterone.’ Belfort, like most fighters with the exemption aside from Dan Henderson, have felt backlash from both fans and media in response to this idea of legally gaining unfair advantage over an opponent through means of supplements and steroids. Rockhold feels that fighters who need TRT are just missing something that they once had.

Rockhold told the media today at the UFC on FX 8 pre-fight presser, “I haven’t supplemented or taken anything in any way. I have a big heart that will push me. People that need the TRT or the extra something are lacking something and it will show in this fight.” While Belfort has maintained his position of not being ashamed of needing TRT to compete, Rockhold made made note that martial arts is a battle of the mind and that hard work is the key to success stating, “Fighting is more mental than physical. I’ve worked hard to get here. I believe in my heart and my hard work.”

    Belfort is a has-been and fights a has-been style. He can KO the Rock, but I see Rock out fighting him and tiring his ass out and TKOing him in the later rounds. Rock to fight Weidman for the mw title by year end.

    • Thom says:

      lol some people actually believe that Weidmann will last a round against Anderson. Hilarious. Vitor’s gonna knock this guy out too.

  3. Can be porn name as well says:

    Luke Rockhold. Bad-ass name.

  4. KIDD433 says:

    Vitor is gonna end it early like he always does.Vitor will rematch Silva after,And Weidman can fight Rockhold then since they’ll both be coming off a loss,GAYgoyle will still be a Troll talking out of his ass.

  5. 757 says:

    Luke Rockhold is going to get knocked out

  6. penny says:

    rockhold by decision

  7. bob says:

    vitor by devastating ko

  8. Dddddd says:

    Most of the guys on here cutin on Rockhold,were on here shredding Sonnen for the same shit your boy Vitors been doin for a long time. You boys should gain a little integrity and choose Rockhold or just have double standards.
    I’m goin with Rockhold 4 rd finish or a unanimous

    • GRT 3000 says:

      big difference man – Vitor comes in at the legal limit, as does Hendo. Sonnen came in with the ‘race horse’ actually jammed up his ass. the highest in sports history I hear. 17:1

      & for me, I’m not slammin’ on Rockhold, I think he’s a good fighter. just imo he’s going to get ktfo.

  9. 757 says:

    Say what you want about Vitor. He is knocking this tool out.

  10. Gob3s says:

    Skill + TRT = vicious ko’s
