UFC 184 headliner Vitor Belfort was hit with a surprise drug test earlier this month while training in South Florida, when the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) sent collectors to his gym -- unannounced -- to collect samples of both blood and urine. Those samples have returned negative for performance-enhancing drugs. Per NSAC's Bob Bennett, @vitorbelfort has passed the blood/urine test he took on Nov. 1.

Chris Weidman has no plans to lose his title to Vitor Belfort and still doesn't think very highly of Belfort as a person. Vitor Belfort's next shot at winning the UFC middleweight crown has been a long time coming. Aside from a late notice replacement fight hiccup against Jon Jones, Belfort has been perfect since getting knocked out in highlight reel fashion by Anderson SIlva in February of 2011. While running up a string of exciting finishes, Belfort was also the poster boy for the anti-testost read news >>

UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman isn’t known for talking a lot of trash before his fights and for the most part has been amicable with his opponents. Ahead of his UFC 184 title defense against Vitor Belfort, Weidman has been much more vocal with his criticism of his opponent.

And if "All American" doesn't finish "The Phenom," he'll consider it a loss. In order to get his license to fight, Vitor Belfort has done all the right things to comply with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) and its guidelines. Chief among them, getting off testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) -- like he had a choice -- and admitting to a failed drug test earlier this year. While "The Phenom" has done his best to clean up his system, and his image, it will take a lot more to get rid read news >>

The skepticism has apparently worn thin on the reigning UFC middleweight champ, who soundly defeated Silva in back-to-back bouts in 2013. In most cases, an undefeated record, two wins over Silva and a successful title defense against Lyoto Machida would have been more than enough to convince the masses.
