While everyone seems to think Vitor Belfort will be unable to compete at the same level that he did while using testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), the Brazilian believes he’s actually better off without it. Speaking to SporTV (translation via MMA Fighting), Belfort said that he’s actually a better fighter without the TRT: It was better for me (the end of TRT) because I left a boring treatment that was bothering me, and now I'm stronger, lighter and faster.

Vitor Belfort was injecting himself with Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), but the truth is, he didn't even like it.

Belfort talks to SporTv (via Bloody Elbow): "It was better for me (the end of TRT) because I left a boring treatment tha read news >>

"The Phenom" has no doubt of his improvement after stopping "a boring and bothering treatment". Vitor Belfort is sure that he's now a better fighter than he was when using TRT.

"It was better for me (the read news >>

And that means nothing but good things for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion, Chris Weidman.

"[Belfort's] doing brilliantly right now. He's ready. He could fight within four weeks if he had to. This is a man who makes sacrifices to be at his very best. I love the fact that he's off the TRT program just to get that out of his conversation, but the diet, the meal plan, it doesn't change that much. Every three weeks we update our meal plan because the body changes so we have to react to the body. It's just a matter of constantly reacting to the body, monitoring his blood work, monitoring h read news >>

Old man strength FTW! "From my point of view, Vitor was and still is the hardest working guy in the gym. I worked with him after he got off the TRT and his strength level didn't change. He was very strong. He's still a strong guy. His physique did change quite a bit, but I think that was water retention. The strength level was the same.... I thought then, and I still think now, that he'll win. I know he's a better boxer than Weidman. I know that for a fact." -- Former Blackzilians wrestling coac read news >>
