NSAC Chairman Says Vitor Belfort Likely to Be Licensed For Weidman Fight

A TRT exemption is another matter though...
NSAC Chairman Francisco Aguilar recently spoke about issues surrounding Vitor Belfort's fight with Chris Weidman this summer in Las Vegas. Check out the highlights:
On Belfort asking for a TRT exemption after having previously tested positive for a steroid: "I think TRT is something new, and [an exemption] hasn't been used very frequently. To have it regulated in regards to Mr. Belfort, it's new territory for us. But I don't think that sways the decision one way or the other."
On Belfort likely getting a license: "The issue is going to come from a TRT exemption...I don't want to speculate on [whether Belfort will get an exemption] until I hear the full story. I think we've dealt with some pretty unique issues with different fighters, and we've got to take each issue individually."
