PLAYERS: Vitor Belfort
Vitor looked great on Saturday night and it will be hard to deny the man a title shot next.  He has been on a tear as of late KOing two top ten middleweights with spectacular head kicks in his last two fights.  Unfortunately for the UFC veteran his late success has been overshadowed by his TRT use.  Kieth Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission has gone on record saying he doesn’t believe that the NSAC would grant Belfort a TRT exemption due to a past failed test for steroids.  Once you are on TRT you are not suppose to come off it for the rest of your life, so does that mean that Vitor is not going to fight in the United States for the rest of his career?  Not sure what will be next for Vitor but whatever it is TRT will be an issue.
