Vitor Belfort Didn’t Fail His Drug Test at UFC on FX 7…But Somebody Else Might Have

On Friday morning, rumors began to spread that Vitor Belfort had failed a drug test for his UFC on FX 7 headlining fight against Michael Bisping last month. Between Belfort’s stammering recent response about TRT and his previous PED-bust in 2006, it was one of those rumors that immediately gained traction because it seemed perfectly believable. But was there any actual truth to it? Well, we have some good news and some bad news. Here’s what UFC president Dana White had to say when asked about the Belfort rumor following the UFC 156 press-conference on Saturday night (transcribed by MMAWeekly and BloodyElbow):

“There was an irregular test. Something was wrong. Whenever something wrong happens, or weird, (the samples) get retested and, usually, it’s not a good thing. It (expletive) was not Vitor Belfort. Yet, right now I bet if you talked to 100 people, 100 people will tell you that Vitor Belfort failed his drug test in Brazil. That’s (expletive)…I do know the results. They’ll be out Monday… [Ed. note: *checks calendar* Sweet!]

“That’s crazy, that some rumor from a (expletive) clown with a fake name on Twitter can do that. It’s crazy. Some (expletive) goof on Twitter puts out a tweet, and everybody starts (expletive) throwing these accusations around. I’ve got Michael Bisping (expletive) blow me up at 1 in the morning from England going, ‘Did that (expletive) fail the drug test?’ It’s (expletive) crazy, man.”

Alright, so it looks like the Phenom is out of the woods. But could this “irregular test” mean that somebody else on the card is going to get nailed today? If so, it would already be the third failed drug test this year. Feel free to speculate about the latest drug-cheat’s identity in the comments section, and we’ll update this post as soon as we hear more.

It's almost Tuesday.

My guess is Daniel Sarafian he looked in-humanly jacked at the fight.

Tavares looked thick and slow. If I was a betting man, that's who my money would be on to piss hot.

A passing note of how deflated and unimposing overseen looked when he is actually tested has NOT been discussed near enough. Was a mediocre LHW. And minus a steady juice diet became a mediocre HW. Well that and being asked to fight an actual fighter. Bigfoot at best is a gatekeeper, and he slammed said gate shut.

As someone who's been training pro body builders for 10 years now I can tell very easily if someone's on the juice and trust me when I first saw Belfort get into the cage a few weeks ago I knew he had been on something. Whether he's caught this time will be interesting to see because he's guilty as hell.

I thought vitor looked super ripped in that fight with pissbin ( bisbing ). It was very refreshing watching that loud mouth hit the ground. Keep it up vitor.

Everyone just "knew" Vitor would fail.... This is why people need to learn more and stop thinking they know everything about PHD. You just make yourself look stupid.

The thumb up is for asking the types of questions that nobody else around here - myself included - has the guts to ask.
