Vitor Belfort has been one of the main names attached to TRT and has taken criticism for it. The longtime UFC fighter thinks there is nothing wrong with using the substance.
“I’m not doing anything illegal,” said Belfort to MMA Fighting. “I think people have to have this choice. I’m not doing anything illegal, so I’m not ashamed of anything.”
Following a second round TKO against Michael Bisping, it was revealed in the post-fight drug test that Belfort had TRT in his system. He received doctor’s permission to use TRT, so no actions were taken.
UFC president Dana White has stated how he looks to rid the sport of the drug.
Belfort returns this Saturday, May 18. He headlines opposite Luke Rockhold from Brazil’s Arena Jaraguá.
