Vitor Belfort Issues Apology For The “Immature Way” He Handled TRT Question


By FCF Staff

Vitor Belfort has issued an apology after the fighter lashed out at a reporter Saturday night, for raising the fighter’s use of testosterone-replacement-therapy, following his KO win over Luke Rockhold.

Belfort told MMA Junkie.com’s John Morgan he was “boring” and asked “somebody to beat him up” for bringing up the issue, which dominated headlines heading into UFC on FX 8.

Belfort posted his apology via Twitter by saying:

To all my fans and to all the reporters that was there on the after press conference I would like to ask for forgiveness the way I answer about TRT I RECOGNIZE THAT I ANWSER IN A IMMATURE WAY BUT WAS THE 10 th time that that reporter ask the same question. No excuse!! I made a WORNG call and I am here to ask for forgiveness God bless all you guys love to do what I do and I am keeping moving UP SEEKING GROW AS A MEN OF GOD AND AS A FIGHTER “DONT DOUT ME I WILL PROUVE U WORNG” PEACE

The 36 year-old middleweight, who has received an exemption for TRT use in Brazil, knocked Rockhold out with a highlight reel, spinning heel kick at the May 18th event.
