PLAYERS: Vitor Belfort
Vitor Belfort has become the poster boy for fighters using TRT.  He recently had some interesting thoughts on the “medicine” and here is what The Phenom had to say. “I’m the type of fighter that steps into the jungle not fearing anything. I’m there to fight, to do my best. My motivation is not him. It’s not what people say, it’s not what people think. My motivation, no one can steal it, or my my gifts and my talents. I develop them every day. I’m new every day … I’m not doing anything illegal. I think people have to have this choice, you know? 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.” Seems kind of odd to hear Belfort say this since he was so reluctant to admit to using TRT in the first place.  Thanks to MMA Mania for the quote.
