The UFC Countdown crew is in South Florida to film UFC on FX 8 main event fighter Vitor Belfort before his fight against Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold on May 18th. This is a huge fight for the middleweight division as the long time Strikeforce champ could be looking at a title shot if he can get past the Brazilian. One of the biggest story lines surrounding Vitor is his TRT use, and the fact that he would most likely not be able to get an exemption in the US due to a previous failed drug test for steroids. But in Brazil it seems like he is able to use it. Since this fight is in Brazil look to see a ripped up Belfort like we did against Bisping and many questions from fans and media regarding the controversy. Thanks to Ryan Loco for the pic.
