Rumors started circulating around Twitter recently that Vitor Belfort failed his post-fight drug test after defeating Michael Bisping at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping in January. Saturday night, UFC president Dana White put those claims to rest.
“It (expletive) was not Vitor Belfort,” White said. “Right now, I bet if you talk to a hundred people, a hundred people will tell you that Vitor Belfort failed his drug test in Brazil. That’s (expletive), that’s crazy.”
White said the UFC will release the results, which included an irregular result, soon. He added that Bisping quickly phoned him after word of the failed test leaked out.
Belfort is expected to face Luke Rockhold, the former Strikeforce middleweight champion, later this year.
