Didn't Vitor say he would fight Weidman without TRT if need be?

    I could swear I heard him say that a couple of times. Is there a certain reason he chose not to fight Weidman or is it just because he can't use TRT in Nevada? He must know he can't be a Champion and not be able to fight in Nevada, he just lost his chance at the belt imo.

    Perhaps he failed a random drug test, or perhaps he is protesting the NSAC ruling on TRT. Who knows where his mind is at.

    I need clarification....is Vitor officially out of the title fight? Why isn't there a thread solely dedicated to this fact, if it is indeed fact?

    Edit: Nevermind. Frig.

    He would still be good to go by fight night. They'll remain in his system for only a few days.

    It could be that.

    However, Im no doctor, but anyone know if a guy's body could be negatively effected by just stop taking TRT while continuing a training camp??

    he's scared, he is definitely using it against Weidman, after what Weidman did to Silva, and then on his mind, what Silva did to Belfort.

    Otherwise I believe his T/E ratio is naturally low now because due to past abuse of roids....(your system produces less T after you use them)
    So even if his T/E ratio is at normal levels, not all of it would be endogenous forms.

    Remember at the post fight press conference for Weidman vs silva 2 how Vitor was there and thanking Weidman for accepting a fight against him lol then the nsac does this and he's not ready anymore. He was even saying how ready he is and a scope is easy cause Weidman thought he might need one.

    He only said that because he thought he would get it.

    He's on TRT because he has the exemption. Now, with the ban, even if he cleans up, there's a likelihood of him testing positive. But see, if he does test positive, that'd be catastrophic. Not just because he'd lose the title if he managed to win, he'd also be on the chopping block for repeat offenders. If he loses, it's even worse for him. He couldn't prove he stopped taking it past it being banned. Even if he did, people would think he continued to use. And then, there's always the possibility does it and fails on purpose so he could say that it was before it was banned.
