UFC on FX 7: Vitor Belfort talks Testosterone Replacement Therapy....kinda sorta


UFC Middleweight contender Vitor Belfort is the only thing between Micheal Bisping and a UFC title shot against Anderson Silva. Belfort will meet Bisping at UFC on FX 7: Belfort vs. Bisping. In advance of the fight he spoke to ESPN's Brett Okamoto and the subject of Tesosterone Replacement Therapy came up:

Quote:

ESPN: Some fighters in their 30s have been diagnosed with low testosterone levels and received exemptions to use testosterone replacement therapy [TRT]. Have you ever applied for TRT or would you consider it?

Belfort: If a question is private, I have the choice to answer or not. If I make it public, it's not private anymore. If I want to say something private I will say it, but I keep to myself and I respect the laws of the sport. Whatever the organization, whatever the law -- they know what to do. This is too controversial, why am I going to say something that doesn't accomplish anything? If it's legal, they know what to do. If it's legal, there's nothing to say about it. It's legal.

ESPN: As you mention, TRT is legal for fighters who qualify for it. Do you believe it's getting a bad image in the sport? Fans are too quick to judge fighters who use it?

Belfort: It's hard. Like, you're either a Republican or Democrat. Who is right? I think it's this: The truth is always in the middle. Of course, some things are non-negotiable. I think in life, you just need to find a balance. That's the problem with the rule, is that everyone is so radical. That's my opinion. I'm very faithful to the things I believe in and I'm working on myself. I don't like to judge. When you judge people, it sounds like you are God. We live in a freedom country. It is what it is.
Anyone understand what Belfort is actually saying here?

Vitor's lost his ******* mind.

He was on the MMA Hour on Monday and Ariel asked him about his haircut and he said the story was too long then he starts telling the story and he's going on about King David and someone scalping a bunch of lion's and shit.

And I love it, Vitor's awesome, hope he KO's Bisping. Though it should be noted on 152 someone had a TRT exemption but they never revealed who.

I personally wouldn't doubt it if he was on it (TRT)... Rashad Evans is Pro TRT. Vitor trains with Evans and he is getting up their in age for it to make sense now. Plus he kinda beat around the bush with his philosophical non-sense again...

Seems like he's saying for Question 1: he was/is on TRT, but since it's doctor-prescribed, it's both confidential/private (so he feels justified in not talking about it), and also legal.

And for question 2: He was/is on TRT, so he doesn't judge people for using TRT, and he wishes (not surprisingly) that others wouldn't judge him for using.

Belfort needs to lay off the jesus juice.. It's messing with his head.

Way to totally side step the question Vitor! But from what he said (or didn't say) I would lean towards him using TRT.

In this thread Vitor Belfort admits using TRT.

Another TRT phag.

You dont need to be a fighter to get low testosterone in your 30's. Happens to every guy.
