Chris Weidman Says He Hopes NSAC Does 'Due Diligance' For Testing Vitor Belfort
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.03.2014



Chris Weidman recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Vitor Belfort taking place in Las Vegas and more. Check out the highlights:

On fighting in Vegas: "I'm happy about it. He's fought in Brazil now for the last two years, and obviously he looks like the Hulk now. He's on TRT and he's been caught cheating before for testosterone and I don't know what else. … For a guy who's 36 years old to have a lot higher testosterone than me at 29 years old, and I've never taken anything, is really not fair. So I'm happy that I'll be fighting in Vegas, and I hope they'll do due diligence in testing him to make sure he's not cheating."

On TRT: "I'm not a big TRT guy – I don't think TRT belongs in our sport. I don't like it. I don't have the highest testosterone in the world, and I wouldn't take it. I feel just fine where I'm at. Some people would probably tell me to take testosterone, but I wouldn't do it."

Another thing that would've been interesting if he had a vote would have been his fight against Belfort had the UFC told him it was going to take place in Brazil. Critics of Belfort headlining three straight cards in Brazil have said that the UFC is hiding him there to avoid stiffer testing in the States. The UFC has countered those claims, though, by saying it's just been smart business to put Belfort, a national sporting treasure in Brazil, at the top of cards in his home country.

On whether he would have fought defending the title against Belfort in Brazil: "It would've been a discussion, for sure. I wouldn't have have just taken it on the chin and said, ‘OK, let's do it.' I would've had a discussion."

On Belfort making a good next opponent for him: "I think he's the right guy. It's whoever the UFC thinks is the contender. He's had three knockouts in a row, so I think he's the right guy."
