Chael Sonnen vs Vitor BelfortWhile Vitor Belfort issued an admission and test results showing elevated levels of testosterone stemming from a Feb. 7 drug test in Nevada, the Ultimate Fighting Championship released its own statement, supporting its No. 1 middleweight contender.

Beflort is attempting to gain a license in Nevada so that he might fight Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 on July 5. He first has to go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission on June 17 for a comprehensive review that is likely to partly focus on his Feb. 7 drug test where he admittedly test positive for elevated levels of testosterone due to a testosterone replacement therapy regimen.

The UFC’s statement was brief, but offered full backing to Belfort in his quest to gain a license in Nevada:

“The UFC organization supports Vitor Belfort’s application for a license to compete in Nevada, and we respect the Nevada Athletic Commission and its licensing process. Pending Commission approval, we look forward to a great fight between Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 on July 5.”
