Vitor Belfort Made His Final Statement On TRT Issue
UFC vet Vitor Belfort responded to TRT critics yesterday regarding his use of the now infamous treatment.
Many fighters and fans oppose use of the treatment in sports because of how easily it can be abused. It is legal per state athletic commissions with an official exemption.
Many in the community suspect athletes who have been caught using steroids in the past, like Vitor Belfort, to be abusing TRT. TRT is prescribed to men with low testosterone, which happens to be a side effect of steroid use.
Vitor explained his perspective via Twitter and said that this is his last statement on the issue. We edited his tweet for spelling corrections.
"This will be last time that I will talk about TRT I never hide from UFC that I was on the treatment but I admit that I didn't admit to the press. I confess that this was my mistake I am MAN enough to admit my mistakes So from now on, guys please don't fight me if u going to use this as a excuse that's it. I never lie and never hide from UFC."
We have yet to learn what tactics the UFC plans to implement in their new war against TRT.
