    He defeated Tra Telligman in February '97 and UFC 12, and defeated Nate Marquardt in June 2017 at UFC 212.

    Cool if you like even numbers.

    Too bad he was a PED user who got defensive whenever the accusations came up.

    And he is a prime example of "steroids don't work in fighting." He has been using exotic supplements his entire career, and his longest winning streak is 5 fights, and that happened when he wasn't even known as "TRT Vitor."

    Steroids don't work. The numbers don't lie. LOL

    It always seemed like Vitor's weakness was his confidence, focus and aggression. Getting hopped up on testosterone seemed to remove that.

    Too bad you're permanently trapped in la-la land.

    Pretty damn impressive, even with the help of extra Lucky charms.

    He's a legend in my book.

    Drugs? Who gives a shit, it's not a real sport. Go watch all the "clean" fighters that are beloved.
    I'm ready for a slew of "Jake O'Brien was kind of okay" threads.

    It's insane a guy who fought at UFC 12 is still relevant. We may never see that kind of longevity again.

    Respect.

    Steroids do work, look at Vitor on and off TRT, it's night and day.

    Do you know Vitor's history? The middle of his career he wasn't there mentally with his sister getting kidnapped and then ending up murdered.
