The issue for me isn't that Vitor wants a title fight in Brazil... the issue is that if he gets the shot, and wins, then will he ONLY fight in Brazil? What happens to the belt then? He can't defend in Vegas? Can't defend it in US at all? Can't defend it in Canada?

If he only fights in Brazil, is he World champ?

he already fought in Canada on TRT. I believe Vegas is the only commission that commented that people who had failed a drug test might not be able to get an exemption for TRT.

BTW, most brazilian fans I know dislike Belfort. Some for his positive steroid test, some for his stupid religious schtick, some because they find him to be "an ignorant, unpleasant, mentally limited bully" as described on tatame lol.
I personally dislike him personally, but I do enjoy watching him fight.





Plus, his wife is still very hot. Joana Prado. Google her... two brazilian playboy editions, IIRC, about 15 years ago.

A LOT of people, including champs, never fought in Vegas.
GSP only had 5 fights in Canada. Fail.

CABMMA official Cristiano Sampaio said that once a TUE is granted, there are still ample hurdles to clear before and after fight night that include a minimum of three blood tests in the three months before the fight, as well as a pre-fight urine test. There are also post-fight tests of both urine and blood.

"In both the Rockhold and Bisping fights, Belfort’s levels were all deemed acceptable, but “The Phenom” said he took things one step further and conducted additional tests at his own expense. “For the fight with Rockhold, I did seven blood tests,” Belfort said. “I did one every week. I have records of all of them. Some of the results are even lower than they should be, and the doctor said, ‘You should probably increase,’ and I said, ‘No, I don’t want to get to a level that’s bad for me.’'
Belfort was monitored by Dr. Marcio Tannure, the head of the Brazilian commission’s medial committee.

"Belfort’s testosterone levels were tested frequently throughout his training camp leading up to UFC on FX 8, according to White. He was also tested at the event."

UFC is an American company. The default location for fights is in America, particularly Las Vegas. Let's take a different angle.
