Well here’s an interesting piece of news. We’ve gotten used to fighters, like Chris Weidman, Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping, calling out Vitor Belfort for using banned substances, but now it’s Vitor’s turn.
The Brazilian, while speaking to the media in Sao Paulo, said that instead of looking at his testosterone levels, they should have been looking at UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman’s.
Belfort had this to say:
“Did he stop cycling? Wasn’t him the one to stop cycling, because his testosterone was low? I was doing a treatment and paid the price. But have you ever thought about it, or no? Nobody ever talked about it. My levels were normal, his levels were low. How a kid at his age has low testosterone?”
Belfort also said that while he was on TRT, he knows other fighters were using banned substances:
“The reality is everybody was doing cycling, with their testosterones. I didn’t hide anything. You all knew what I was doing, I was doing a treatment. And I still have the deficiency, I’m working with supplements and food. I have a life of sacrifice. I don’t have a normal social life. I won’t reveal my secret, and my doctor’s secret, but we have been using natural things to meet this demand.”
