Vitor Belfort Cleared To Fight In Brazil
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.07.2014



While Vitor Belfort won't be able to compete in Nevada due to his TRT use (which was banned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission), he can still fight in Brazil for the UFC. In an interview with MMA Fighting, Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) medical director Dr. Marcio Tannure said that Belfort was cleared for Brazil fights.

On if Belfort can fight in Brazil: "He can fight here, no problem, but he can't use TRT. Since he doesn't have a license to use TRT anymore, he would be tested like any other fighter."

On a license with the CABMMA: "As far as license with the (CABMMA), he would be able to fight no problem. He would be tested like any other fighter. If he failed any test, he would be suspended like any other regular fighter."

On if he would need to reveal the results of a drug test he took in February: "Every commission has its standards. I don't know which test he did and what was the result, so I can't talk about it and which criteria they're considering in (Belfort's) case. Every time a fighter that tested positive in the past applies for a license in Nevada is tested again, and we will adopt that here as well. This is an interesting criteria, and we will also do it, but (Belfort) never tested positive here."
