I definitely think Vitor Belfort is telling the truth. He is one of the most religious fighters out there, I don't think he'd fake it just to get back to fighting, in his view the Lord wouldn't be too happy. Plus, his sister was kidnapped and murdered, that always has to be in his mind. So with that being said, yes, I believe him.

It works for many people. Look at Vitor when he was younger. Juiced up? Yeah. He had many victories. Just because someone uses something doesn't mean they will lose. Many get away with using and achieve great things. NOT THAT I CONDONE IT IN ANYWAY.

If you have to take drugs to win, your not a winner.

There could be plenty people on top of many sports that may use. Drugs are everywhere and alot of people will use to be in the competition for the best. If I'm wrong then why do so many get caught?

There is so much money involved in all sports especially the top of the game that people will risk being banned for a half mill. I think its the fact that people think they cant win in their head and thus use drugs, rather than useing drugs for that little advantage they may not need.

Drugs is a factor in any sport being as your always pushed to be the best, and if your not, a lot will look for ways to achieve it. Im not that clued up in MMA but Vitor hasnt been doing the best recently so maybe his mindset was a little on the drugs side. Then again maybe it was a wrong move, i always though these top fighters had planned meals/suppliments.

I mean why buy a random suppliment from a shop, why not continue with the suppliment youve been using or one you KNOW is allowed from like xyience???

Yes very good points. To some its worth the risk of getting caught. Money is a staple of life. I wish Vitor would do as good as his old days but I'm afraid they may be over. But then again Henderson is a beast. But like Vitor said, it was a legal supplement. And as I've stated already in this thread I've used legal supplements that can cause a failed drug test. Supplements are getting better and better. I know some guys who use some legal things and say they are just as good if not better than the real deal.

But do you use them knowing that if tested before your fight you will be disqualified. Do you take them KNOWING you will be breaking the rules. Or are you saying you take suppliments that are illigal in some sports.

Or do you use drugs knowing you wont be tested.

IMO takeing a drug when you get paid £10,000+ a fight before extra's, and takeing them competing in local tournaments for £1000 is a little different IMO. I have no idea what you do, but i would think if your yearly earnings were in the million+ mark you'd damn well pay attention to what your putting in your body "just in case".

I know i would...

I used them for the extra edge and took all the post cycle therapy and products to keep the body healthy. I know what I was doing. When money is on the line people will do almost anything.
