VITOR BELFORT RUMORS

Facing former light heavyweight king Lyoto Machida in the main event of Saturday night’s UFC on...

WATCH: Luke Rockhold chokes out Lyoto Machida

Luke Rockhold (pictured) may have entered Saturday’s scrap against Lyoto Machida as the fourth ranked UFC middleweight, but he likely left the cage as the division’s top contender. Sorry, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.  Machida fell to the mat in the opening round after eating a punch (it also looked like he slipped at the same time), but “The Dragon” was never able to recover...

Rockhold: 'I don't think Vitor Belfort deserves anything, I wish nothing good for him'

Emotion can fuel a fighter, but sometimes it can also serve as a distraction. UFC middleweight contender Luke Rockhold believes to this day the anger boiling over inside of him ahead of his debut in the Octagon against Vitor Belfort was still the biggest factor that cost him a loss. Since that fight, Rockhold has learned to keep his emotions in check and it paid off in a big way...

Will Weidman’s Grit and Technical Prowess be too Much for Belfort at UFC 187?

(Mandatory Credit: USA Today Sports) The two best middleweights in the world, champion Chris Weidman (12-0) and challenger Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort (24-10), were supposed to meet nearly a year ago at UFC 173.  Between then and now, due to injuries and questions surrounding PED use, the highly anticipated bout has been scheduled 4 different times.  Hopefully the 4th time’s...

Vitor Belfort: Chris Weidman should be drug tested as much as me

There is no question that UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort is an all-time great. In nearly twenty years as a pro, he's accomplished a great deal and won many titles. Perhaps most impressive of all, is that he's still relevant and challenging for the top spot in the sport at this date. In May, he will challenge 185 pound champ Chris Weidman for the middleweight world title, in Las Vegas...

No Random Drug Tests for Vitor Belfort, UFC Champ Chris Weidman Baffled

The last time the Nevada Athletic Commission randomly drug tested Vitor Belfort (pictured), the UFC middleweight top contender failed miserably by clocking high levels of testosterone. So, why has the NAC not surprised Belfort with another drug screening after voting unanimously to grant him a license exactly three months ago, particularly when one of the three stipulations they...

Chris Weidman Takes Dig at Vitor Belfort’s Thinned Physique

Oh, that Chris Weidman is quite the jokester. Last month, Vitor Belfort claimed he no longer needed TRT because he traded in the controversial treatment for TNT. Just in case you don’t understand what the Brazilian is trying to say, Belfort swapped out synthetic testosterone injections for dynamite. Apparently, it appears Belfort dropped some pounds in the process – which Weidman...
