Only a few months after vowing to test Vitor until "the day you retire," the NSAC has done anything but that, as Weidman and Belfort get set to face off at UFC 184. Trying to make sense out of athletic commission regulations and punishments can be a bit of a rabbit hole. The more you chase after truth and accuracy the more you get caught up in a warren of half truths and almost punishments; guidelines bend or stand firm, seemingly at random and with an ease that, at times, can be troubling.

LOL. The commission has not -- and likely will not -- be testing "The Phenom" ahead of his Chris Weidman title fight, despite failing a NSAC-mandated drug test earlier this year, because Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) intends to bring Belfo read news >>

Exactly three months ago, the Nevada Athletic Commission granted Vitor Belfort a license to fight in the state based on three conditions: he could not compete prior to December, his next fight had to be in Nevada, and he would cooperate when approached for random blood and urine testing no matter where he is. "I'll give you my definition of reasonable testing going forward from this commissioner's perspective," NAC commissioner Anthony Marnell told Belfort at the hearing, "we're going to drug te read news >>

It's just a matter of constantly reacting to the body, monitoring his blood work, monitoring h read news >>

The confidant to many a UFC athlete, famed nutritionist Mike Dolce chalks much of the work he does with fighters as simply 'reacting to the body.' With the UFC's ban of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) in February, a few of Dolce's clients were the most directly affected by the policy. No. 1 contender Vitor Belfort withdrew from a title bout with middleweight champion Chris Weidman at UFC 173 in May, citing the time constraints of allowing himself to adjust to the rule. Set to compete with read news >>

Anderson Silva once stood atop the UFC's middleweight mountain, dominating opponent after opponent in mesmerizing and devastating fashion. But in stepped a confident Chris Weidman to put an end to Silva's reign as champion by stopping him in back-to-back contests in 2013. Ten months after his latest loss to the current middleweight champion, Silva doesn't think he's the most complete fighter the middleweight division has to offer. And, no, he doesn't give that nod to the champion either. He told read news >>
