Rockhold says Belfort 'main culprit' for TRT, calls for universal UFC regulation
Asked about the UFC's recent pledge to increase monitoring of testosterone-replacement therapy among its athletes, Rockhold offered, "They're letting him fight in Brazil and use TRT when Nevada doesn't let him, so who knows what's going on?" At a press conference in Brazil for the event, which takes place May 18 at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Rockhold said he didn't have a problem with Belfort's use of TRT. But in subsequent interviews, his opinion has changed. Rockhold said he doesn't care whether Belfort is using TRT when they step into the cage for their FX-televised headliner, but it's provided extra motivation in training camp.

UFC champ Johnson: 25-minute fight 'takes a real man and a man with balls'
Back to training after a serious shoulder injury, Demetrious Johnson (17-2-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) aims to exhaust John Moraga (12-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) when they meet at UFC on FOX 8, which takes place July 27 at Seattle's KeyArena. "I would prefer to go five rounds to see if he can go that far," Johnson recently said. A torn labrum forced the UFC flyweight champion to withdraw from a headlining fight this past month against Moraga at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale, but it didn't stop him from staying in shape. Now, he wants to see whether Moraga has the gas to keep up with him.
