This Saturday in Brazil, MMA legends Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson will face off for a second time.
According to MMAJunkie.com, recent events have indicated that both fighters will be granted therapeutic-use exemptions for TRT.
Belfort has not fought in the U.S. since 2011. Many of his critics point to this fact as a validation supporting the conspiracy that the thirty-six year old former world champion has been dodging drug testing regulations unique to the United States. This is an accusation that UFC President Dana White has repeatedly denied, stating that Vitor has only fought in Brazil so many times because it’s simply good for business; after all,”The Phenom” is very popular in his home country.
Henderson has also had a history of using TRT, however, he has always been compliant in following regulations and has never failed a drug test.
Things haven’t been going too great for the forty-three year old former Olympian as of late. He has lost his last two fights in a row in back to back split decision losses to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans. If he loses this Saturday, it will mark the first time in his career that he has lost three fights in a row.
