UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy slammed Vitor Belfort today on Submission Radio, and talked about how Vitor is essentially “injecting anything he wants, and loving it.”
Kennedy called out Belfort recently and wanted a fight with ‘The Phenom’ however matchmaker Erick Silva had other plans, and set up a fight between Kennedy and Yoel Romero. Now Kennedy is taking the offensive and attempting to take his fate into his own hands by starting beef between himself and Belfort, who has become the ‘poster boy’ for TRT in the eyes of many.
“So guys have definitely been on it for a really long time on a whole bunch of different stuff,” Kennedy told Submission Radio. “You know, if you ask every single fighter, every single guy if they’ve ever been blood tested, the vast majority of them will say no. The stuff that they’re catching these guys on are things that you could only find with blood tests. So you know, only recently in the past few months have we tested guys you know, for HGH, EPO, you know stuff that you could only find in the blood, and ironically those guys that they test keep failing. So it’s definitely been there and there’s not like there’s an increase of it, it’s just (that if) you’re testing for it you’re going to find it, and a whole bunch of guys are using it, and a lot more than they’ve found.”
Kennedy is referring to Chael Sonnen, who retired after it was discovered he tested positive for multiple banned substances used to transition him off TRT.
“Right now he’s down in Brazil, or back in you know California, training his butt off and injecting anything that he wants to and loving it, and nobody’s testing him, or like his doctor – when I say his, I’m making quotation fingers “doctor” – so he’s like dripping testosterone out of his eyeballs right now, how old was he when he first failed a drug test, like 18? For anabolic steroids? So he’s being using for 20 years. Your body doesn’t function naturally now. – He’s what, 37 or 38? So like 18 years -But there’s no possible way that he could compete at a high level against the Chris Weidmans, the me’s, the Luke Rockholds without chemically enhancing himself. There’s no way. I don’t care if he’s like, drinking Jesus’ blood like he says he is or whatever, it doesn’t work that way. Like, he’s been using steroids for like 15 or 20 years, and he still is using them. If he ever tries to get clean, he can’t compete at this level.
