Michael Bisping responds to rumors that Vitor Belfort failed his UFC on FX 7 drug test
(mmamania.com)
Did Vitor Belfort fail his UFC on FX 7 drug test? Michael Bisping, who was knocked out by "The Phenom" last month in Brazil (see it here), is hoping the nasty little rumor making the rounds on Twitter isn't true. While Tatame reports the drug test results won't be released until later this month, Belfort may unfortunately (and unfairly) be held guilty until proven innocent, at least in the court of public opinion, following his steroid scandal back in 2006, which was later compounded by allegations of TRT use. Stay tuned.
