Anyways weidman is the only one at 185 that has a decent shot against anderson, I don't see what people are seeing with vitor in a rematch, that wasn't a fluke kick, it was just one of anderson's many tricks and he would pull off a different one against vitor if they rematched.
Well I don't think he is banned from competing in the states he just can't use TRT if he wants to fight there. I am not 100% sure though.

I don't really care that much about his TRT use or his blatant roiding when he was younger before the sport tested. A lot of people have and continue to use roids and it is up to the people in charge to do something about it. I don't like the guy because I have seen him target the back of his opponents head. His roid raging on journalists doesn't exactly make him endearing either.

The commissions only rule over their states though if something like a ban is brought down by one in the states the others usually respect it. Nevada has influence but it seems like the Brazil commission doesn't give a **** about what anyone else says. They can probably deny him a license over this.
