Vitor Belfort On Using TRT: ‘Just Trying To Be Fair’

Vitor Belfort caught a lot of heat for his recent comments about using TRT for his fights.

Belfort, in an interview with Sherdog, claimed that using the testosterone replacement therapy places him on an even-playing field with younger fighters.

The TRT, the shot just gets you level in the system. So, the bottom line my level is always lower than a regular guy. I never go [over] the limit, the level. So, what I’m trying to do, I’m just trying to be fair in my career against my opponent. The TRT is just something my body cannot produce. I’m doing the treatment with doctors, with blood work, so everything’s pretty black and white. But, all of guys are out there doing a lot of stuff but they don’t get caught because they don’t have blood.

Belfort has defeated Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold this year, and is viewed as the top contender at middleweight. However, he is currently not scheduled for action against anyone.
