Luke Rockhold has been very vocal about his UFC on FX 8 opponent's use of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). UFC president Dana White has been even more critical of TRT, calling it "a way for people to cheat." Now Rockhold's opponent, Vitor Belfort responds.
Belfort spoke to MMA Fighting's Mike Chiappetta:
"That's what (Dana White) thinks, but I'm not doing anything illegal," Belfort says. "I think people have to have this choice, you know?"
Belfort says that he doesn't care that his name came out as a user, even though as a result, he gets asked about it in every single interview he does. Even though some people accuse him of cheating. That's a label that has dogged him before, and may stick to him until he hangs up his gloves.
"It's no problem," he said. "I think they should release [the name] of everyone that's on it. For me, it's no problem. I'm not doing anything illegal, so I'm not ashamed of anything."
Belfort also talks about training with the Blackzillians, his motivations and being a fighter who "steps into the jungle not fearing anything."Read the whole piece at MMA Fighting.
