Why is it that Vitor is the only one that gets knocked for TRT? Hendo uses it ( except this upcoming fight I believe). Chael uses it AND tested positive for steroids as well, ye he doesn't get shit for it. I know there are others that use it as well, just can't think off hand right now. Is it because he looks so dominant lately? Sorry just tired of the same old conversation every time he's about to fight.

People knock Vitor because of his transformation to what he is now since TRT, and because he failed a Steroid test so according to commision rules he shouldnt get a TUE.

Hendo uses it for legit reasons and has for a good long time. He has never failed a test and always has normal levels of testosterone.

Chael did not fail a steroid test, Chael had a TUE in the past but failed to provide the proper paperwork for it before the fight, then after the fight the combo of being over the allowed ratio, and not having provided the proper paperwork got him suspended.

also testosterone is different from steroids similar but different. Steroids can lower your natural testosterone because of how much they have it reeks havoc on natural testosterone over time. This is why some people need testosterone or steroids after prolonged steroid use...Such as what a lot of people are claiming of Vitor..

Sonnen never tried to hide his use of testosterone though, he was told by his former manager that it was cleared with the commission and he openly admitted before his fight that he had taken it but with permission.

Hendo to my knowledge has never tested positive for anything so he's approved by the commission for the therapy.

Vitor gets knocked for it because he is the cause of his own lowered testosterone (if his testosterone is low at all) and because he continues to use it while taking fights only in locations that will allow him to fight using TRT

Chael never tested positive for steroids. He tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone, likely as a result of TRT.

as stated by other members why he shouldn't be allowed..and there's a BIG difference in Belfort lately then previously in his career..u can't tell me u dont notice it..it's pretty obvious to his cheating, and he MUST fight in Brazil ONLY..where the testing isnt a strick as the States..

All Belfort's doing is using the rules to his advantage.
