White: Criticism For Belfort’s TRT Use Is ‘Unjust’
“I think Vitor has been unjustly beat down for the TRT thing. You guys know how I feel about TRT. But he’s done everything the right way and been within the limits he’s supposed to be in. He will end up fighting in the States. He’s been fighting in Brazil because he does well in Brazil. There’s no conspiracy… First of all, have we ever done anything slimy, seriously, in 13 years? Like, ‘Let’s keep him in Brazil so nobody (tests him).’ I f**ing hate unfair people who cheat, putting guys in a position where they’re at a disadvantage. I hate that stuff. I want fights to happen evenly and for the best guy to win, and that’s why I was so pissed off about the TRT thing because I felt like people were cheating. People are getting jacked up during their training. One guy’s fighting on his natural abilities, the other guy’s getting jacked up, he recovers faster in training camp than the guy who’s natural, and then he gets his levels back down before the fight. That’s what was pissing me off.”
During last weekends media event, UFC President Dana White touched on the TRT use of top middleweight fighter, Vitor Belfort.
In the past few months, members of the media and fans alike have hammered Vitor Belforts use of TRT and devised a conspiracy theory for his fights all taking place in Brazil.
