Vitor Belfort, fresh off causing a bit of an uproar for the use of testosterone replacement therapy, has been told he can use TRT again prior to an upcoming bout with Luke Rockhold. The Brazilian news site Tatame confirmed the report with the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission.
“He’s been through this process, then we have the history,” said Marcio Tannure, medical director of the CABMMA.
The two middleweights will meet in Santa Catarina, Brazil at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold. “The Phenom” has previously tested positive for a banned substance, making his decision to use TRT an intriguing one.
