UFC President Dana White Talks About Vitor Belfort's Issues with the NSAC and TRT
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.24.2014



Speaking to reporters in a pre-fight UFC 173 media scrum, UFC President Dana White addressed Vitor Belfort's issues with TRT and getting licensed to fight. Below are some highlights:

White on Belfort's testosterone levels when he was tested in Las Vegas: "Let's say he came into Nevada, and his (testosterone) levels were off the charts. He wasn't fighting. He came in here to talk about getting licensed. And the thing was, ‘Welcome to Nevada: You want to be licensed here, you have to stop taking TRT.' As a guy who's not fighting, you can go around and do whatever the hell you want with TRT."

White's stance on TRT: "I'm against it. If you asked me three months ago, it's legal, and it's sports science. But everyone figures out a way to take a great thing and cheat and make it bad. I think from what I've seen over the last year, I've seen situations where … what I believe guys are doing is jacking this stuff up through the roof through their entire training camp and getting back down to normal levels right before the fight – which is cheating. I hate it."

White on Belfort's problems with the NSAC: "The handling of the Nevada State Athletic Commission is Vitor's problem. It's not my problem. I'll hear from Vitor when he's got it all taken care of. Whenever he's ready," White added later. "I don't know; I don't care. Vitor's going to have to handle that stuff. When he's ready to come back, he'll get Nevada situated. You guys were more concerned when Vitor was on TRT, and now Vitor is not on TRT and you guys are all, ‘Where's Vitor?' When Vitor is situated, he'll come back."
