Yahoo!’s Kevin Iole reported this weekend that the Nevada State Athletic Commission subjected UFC middleweight title contender Vitor Belfort to a random drug test on Saturday — his first such test since being granted a conditional license in Nevada on July 23rd. According to the Yahoo! report, a collector representing the Nevada commission took blood and urine samples from Belfort in Florida, where the fighter currently lives and trains.
Belfort was cooperative with the procedure, and did not attempt to escape out the side door of his gym like some people we know. Results from Belfort’s test will not be ready for approximately two weeks. (Suspense!)
Nevada’s decision to finally drop a rando on Belfort followed a public shaming led by Chris Weidman and MMA news outlets like us, who screamed at the NSAC to do its damn job after it came out that the Nevada commission wasn’t testing Belfort like it had promised in the wake of his failed drug test for elevated testosterone back in February. However, NSAC executive director Bob Bennett told Yahoo! Sports that he had always planned to have Belfort tested — it just took a bit longer than we expected.
Belfort will challenge Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight title at UFC 184 on February 28th in Los Angeles.Read More DIGG THIS
