Former UFC champion, Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort has been granted his license to fight Chris Weidman, by the State of Nevada’s NSAC.

Belfort, who was likely the sole reason for the ban on TRT, originally tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone, during out-of-competition testing. He has since passed five random drug tests, and proved himself worthy of a license to fight.

Belfort faced Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight title on May 23.
