    That so sad. No ROIDS for Vitor so he withdrawls. Guy should be cut from UFC his career is over.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 0 Thumb down 8

    Ryan D, i’m not sure if you know the difference between TRT and steroids, but they’re not the same. Vitor has low testosterone levels (also I don’t need to be reminded that he has been busted 5 years in the past for testing positive for steroids and I know that has an effect on testosterone levels) so he needed TRT to just have normal human levels.
    He withdrew out of respect for the fans and the UFC, as soon as he realized that he wouldn’t be able to train (without TRT) and be prepared for the fight. His career is certainly not over as he’s a skilled veteran and is a terrifying dude to watch fight.
    Machida vs Weidman is pretty intriguing IMO, a better matchup. Seems a bit excessive to say he should be cut for an therapeudic exemption that was approved by the NSAC.

    Test is a steroid.
    Just because it was perscibed by the doctor doesn’t mean its not.
    Its just saver and more powerful than what you get from underground labs(guys making it in there bathtubs) that is all.
    Its still enathate or propionate or cypinate or a slew of other types of test.
    Its still a steroid,just a legal steroid one;)

    Maybe his test range was much higher than normal levels and thats why, not because of the use of TRT but the levels at which his doctor has them at.

  11. Terry robertson says:

    IanH, testosterone is a form of anabolic steroid, as we age our testosterone production naturally decreases. Taking tester one is exactly the same thing as taking anabolic steroids, but taking steroids does not mean taking testosterone as there are many different hormones that can be boosted with steroids. TRT was created to fill a grey area of the law in North America where it is legal to use but illegal to sell steroids.

    If Vitor wants to be a pro athlete he should be subject to the same rules and restrictions that come with ageing like everyone else.

    Not to mention his extremely low levels were most likely created by excessive use to begin with.

    The Las Vegas commission allows a 6:1 epi testosterone to testosterone level. This knowingly allows any of their athletes to fill their bodies with whichever test/test-boosting product they want, as long as it is under the granted level. All this ban does is the athletes go back to not telling what they are taking. If the commissions allows yours levels to be 6 times the normal average range, they already it’s athletes are taking supplements. Until you get caught in recent years, making accusations of who’s on what is pointless and is making liars out of a lot of fighters. People can be as naive as they want, but majority of fighters are not just natural by eating fish, chicken and vegetables. Remember, majority of fighters have reached the supposed age where testosterone levels have begun to decrease
