Dont you think Testosterone and confidence are linked, particularly when talking about fighters?

I think they can be linked, no doubt. I want to see evidence Vitor did show lack of confidence in the past as compared to his TRT phase. His body? Visible differences. His confidence? No way.

His last 8 or so fights before he went on TRT, he was certainly looking jaded and beaten compared to his young vibrant self. He certainly lacked confidence. And then *bam*. From the moment he lost to Hendo, his confidence steadilty returned along with his physique and stamina.

It quite amazing to think that a dude who had a 10 fight spell going 4-6 could come back the terrorize the division. If hes the same beast in the Weidman fight, without TRT? Well... I might have to give the Jesus concept a little more consideration.

I foresee a bubble forming around this guy, much like the real estate bubble of 2008... And when it pops and Chris goes down, there will be a lot of tears to go around, just like 2008.
I still think Anderson Silva is the overall better fighter, but I also think Weidman is the real deal. I think Weidman has not the same intuitive knowledge understanding about fighting like Silva, but he follows the instructions of his coaches probably better than any active UFC fighter at the moment and he has shown some incredible timing and distance management. He is not flashy and won't use a variety of techniques like Silva, but he uses basic techniques close to perfection. I don't think his outings will pop like a bubble. He may lose the belt at some point, but unless he gets real confidence problems after a loss, I'm sure he will stay in the Top5 for a long time.

Testosterone has a huge effect on aggression. Aggression leads to tunnel vision and reduces fear. So yes, TRT has very likely also a significant influence on the confidence of its user.

Tunnel vision is not the same as confidence and it is the last thing desired in a fight. Tunnel vision can be related to Diego Sanchez, not to Vitor.
