Vitor Belfort Admits He Failed Drug Test Due To TRT

UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort has finally confirmed exactly what everyone was thinking, the surprise drug test he took on Feb. 7th came back with elevated levels of testosterone. According to a test processed by LabCorp in Phoenix and released by Belfort, his serum testosterone level was 1472, well above the “normal” cutoff of 1197.

Belfort is set to meet with commission members on June 17th, made his statement through a post on his Instagram page, saying that he didn’t want to have “any clouds hanging over my ability to compete.”
Belfort, his attorney Neil Tabachnik and UFC president Dana White had all previously dismissed the results as “not relevant.”

Heres what he had to say regarding the matter:

“The results of the February 7, 2014 test indicated that my testosterone level was above therapeutic range, White levels slightly outside the normal therapeutic range are not uncommon for some undergoing a TRT regimen, and my doctors immediately modified my therapy to return me to within the therapeutic range (as you can see the 22nd February test results was normal), I do want to acknowledge that the February 7, 2014 test indicated my level was above the range. I further welcome any additional testing that the NSAC deems appropriate and necessary with respect to being granted the privilege of a license to fight here in the State of Nevada,”
