    On the contrary, we can judge them Vitor and Chael together. Are you only able to judge based on who wins and who loses? Because at the risk of exposing my overweening hubris, I think my non-training housewife ass can tell a good fight from bad one.

    Worst case scenario their fight looks like Kimbo / Alexander where they both keel over from gassing out between rounds.

    This fight will show exactly how they perform without trt.

    They'll probably both still be on it. The current testing can't really catch you unless you're stupid.

    Vitor was just caught. That is why TRT is banned. If caught again ... I think he will be clean.

    It's almost like an IQ test. I don't mind Vitor the fighter, but even if he passes another test it's not really a guarantee that he's clean. The only positive with TRT was that 'IF' a fighter was honest it could be regulated with check ins. Realistically at the moment if anyone wants to take PED's though; it's virtually impossible to catch them. A huge amount of PED's beneficial to the sport of MMA aren't even tested for. I'd love the sport to be clean but I've no doubt a lot of fighters aren't.

    This seems almost like a lose-lose situation for Vitor. If he beats Chael, he beat someone coming off consecutive losses/someone nowhere near title contention. If he loses then people will give TRT credit for his recent wins. The only plus side from a win would be gaining some credibility back depending on if its in spectacular fashion.

    If Vitor needs another win ... Chael is as easy a fight as he will get. So its not completely lose lose.

    EXACTLY

    if Vitor looks great could be maybe because Chael without TRT really really sucks

    if Chael looks great could be maybe because Vitor without TRT really really sucks

    we never gonna know how how much the TRT lack affected or not both of the fighters and his performance... anything could happen, I can see on the horizon Chael P. Sonnen being the new middleweight champion

    Vitor is going to stone cold stunner him.

    When Vitor wins, he'll most likely have to wait a year to fight Chris Weidman.
