Belfort justifies TRT usage

"It's hard," he said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I cannot explain why I need something. It's just, the doctors, you know, just they said that I need [TRT]. I did everything by the book. I went to the commissions, the UFC. I never hide from them, so they knew what I was doing. I believe everyone has their personal things. My health is my personal life, you know? A lot of people on TRT, they don't tell [the UFC], whatever. But my case came out because they got a guy on steroids (Thiago Tavares) and they thought it was me, and then they just opened the books. But they knew I doing everything with the UFC together, and never hiding anything.

Belfort, similar to fellow TRT advocate Chael Sonnen, says he's already been tested "many times" since White's announcement.

"Everything is normal," Belfort explained. "My ranges are even lower than the normal. I did everything I should do."

"Why don't we talk about people that do TRT and they lose in the first round?" Belfort continued. "Because, you know, TRT doesn't win fights, man. It doesn't win fights. Look at Chael Sonnen. He's on TRT and he lost fights in the first, second round. It's not going to win fights. You've got to have skills to win fights. That's what it is. A lot of guys are on it. I think they should release everyone who's on it, because that would bring more legitimacy to the sport, and UFC doing the right thing and testing people. I think we're on the right path, and if you lose, just accept it, man. Everyone has an excuse."

Nothing wrong with doctor prescibed medicine when you follow the posology.

TRT is not the problem, cheaters are.

The only problem with the situation is Vitor wouldn't even need the TRT if he didn't juice in the past (before I get flamed he's been caught already, deal with it)


Oh well though, if the UFC wants to book him fights I always enjoy seeing Vitor smash people from an entertainment perspective.

My favorite part is this

"My ranges are even lower than the normal. I did everything I should do."

Flatout lie, they define Normal as the peak a human has in their lifetime. That range is no longer normal when you're 30+. If it was lower than HIS normal then what would be the point of taking it.

Sure.. But people fuck up and make mistakes.. Haters will continue to hold on to shit and never let go. People are so quick to judge someone and make up their minds about a situation before considering anything else.

TRT helps Vitor and MANY other fighters continue to fight. I'm all for it, fuck the past, fuck what happen 10 years ago. Its about Today. What can we do TODAY..

WAR VITOR!!!!

Deniability equates to lacking confidence in doing it in a correct manner and pointing fingers at others is childish. You should concentrate on your situation rather than speaking of others. He fights fierce but his mind is tangled like a web maybe due to the front kick by Spider.

Vitor is a liar, a cheater and I hope Rockhold knocks him out.

How do you know that? Could that be a reason? Sure, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't of needed it anyway...

Many fighters are on TRT now. Is that because they all juiced before?

I laughed during the MMA Hour.
Vitor, why do you have to take TRT?
- I don't know. It's the doctor, you know.

Later, he does one of his speech to say that people criticizing are just talking and don't know.
BUt go ahead Vitor, explain us. Oh, whoopsy, you can't, because "I don't know. It's the doctor you know."
