UFC champ Chris Weidman 'wouldn't be surprised' if most fighters were 'on something'

UFC Middleweight champ Chris Weidman responds to Vitor Belfort's allegation that "most fighters are on something" by saying "I I have no facts on that, but I wouldn't be surprised, I'll say that."

Fight Hub spoke to UFC Middelweight champ Chris Weidman about Anderson Silva and a comment that Vitor Belfort made. Here's what Weidman had to say:

Are you tired of talking about Anderson Silva?
No, no. I miss Anderson Silva. I miss him, I miss talking about him, I miss fighting him. So, it's sad.

Vitor Belfot says most fighters are on something.
I got no... I have no facts on that, but I wouldn't be surprised, I'll say that.

Belfort had been set to challenge Weidman at UFC 173 in Las Vegas but pulled out after taking a urine test -- the results of which were never disclosed -- and the Nevada State Athletic Commission's decision to ban therapeutic use exemptions (TUE) for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Belfort had been granted a TUE for TRT for several fights, mainly in Brazil.

Weidman then had to pull out of the UFC 173 card for knee surgery. He'll now face Lyoto Machida at UFC 175.

CORRECTION: Previous versions of this post misquoted the interviewer as saying "all fighters" rather than "most fighters."
