CABMMA’s medial director Marcio Tannure is defending their decision to allow Vitor Belfort and others to use TRT. Belfort can use the substance overseas, like in Brazil, but it’s doubtful that the NSAC will permit its use in the United States.
That’s a little bit shocking, considering Tannure said CABMMA is outlined by NSAC guidelines.
“Not that we follow their decisions, but for being the oldest and most acting Commission, the NSAC was the model we used to start ours,” said Tannure to Fights Only. “If, at some point, Vitor Belfort gets caught in a drug test with an anabolic hormone, he will be punished again like any other fighter. But he is currently using an androgenic hormone, specific for replacement.”
