With all the recent tough talk on testosterone, the big TRT elephant in the room is Vitor Belfort. Vitor, with his quivering muscles and unusually aggressive behavior, is currently in the middle of yet another career resurgence and many (quietly) wonder if it has anything to do with the steroids he is legally allowed to inject. Michael Bisping was not impressed when he learned that his title aspirations were once again dashed by a chemically enhanced opponent, and now that the cat is out of the bag Vitor is speaking up about the unfair accusations being thrown his way:
This will be last time that I will talk about TRT I never hide from #ufc that I was on the treatment but I admit that I didnt admit to the press. I confess that this was my mistake I am MEN enough to admit my mistakes So from now on , guys please don’t fight me if u going to use this as a execuse that’s it. I never lie and never hide from ufc.
He is MEN enough … possibly two or three MEN with all the testosterone he takes. Fortunately, that would still put him under the legal 6:1 ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone allowed. (The average male has a 1:1 ratio) And that’s apparently fine by his next opponent, Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold:
“I saw Ben Henderson’s statement about TRT and PED’s being a weakness and I feel the exact same way. I don’t really care. I’m going out there and I’m going to do what I do. I’m going to beat people whether they are on it or they are clean. I’m a clean fighter and I’m going to go out there and I am going to do my job. It doesn’t matter to me. Honestly, I get more satisfaction beating people who are on the stuff.”
That’s a nice warriur sentiment from Rockhold. I wonder if his opinion will change after Vitor pins him to the mat with one meaty arm and uses the other to pound chicklets out of his face.
