Though Luke Rockhold doesn’t use TRT, it has been a popular topic around his name. That’s because his upcoming opponent, Vitor Belfort, is a known user.
Heading into the fight, Rockhold has called for universal standards on the substance.
“I don’t think it should vary from state to state and country to country,” said Rockhold on MMA Junkie Radio. “I think if it’s OK there, it’s OK everywhere and I think there should be more testing. I think there should be testing for bout camp, beforehand and after.”
With nine straight wins for Strikeforce, Rockhold makes his UFC debut. He was the final Strikeforce middleweight champion.
Belfort ended Michael Bisping’s middleweight title shot with a second round knockout in January. TRT was in his system during that fight.
They headline UFC on FX 8 on May 18. It comes from Brazil’s Arena Jaraguá.
