UFC 187: Chris Weidman Reports 6:50AM Visit From The NSAC
By FCF Staff
Vitor Belfort has been randomly drug tested by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in advance of his May 23rd scrap with Chris Weidman, and now the UFC champ is reporting he’s been called on to do the same
Recently, Weidman posted the following comments on his official, Facebook page:
Just got a ring on my door bell at 6:50 am.. Ended up being the Nevada state athletic commission. Now..I have 2 kids and a pregnant wife so usually I would be pissed someone showing up like that but this is worth the inconvenience. They took blood and urine. First time being tested like that since I got in the sport. Really excited that they are starting to test fighters like this. Hope this really cleans up the sport!! #cleanathlete
The middleweight champion will face Belfort at UFC 187, which will mark the first time Weidman has fought since last July, when he decisioned Lyoto Machida. Weidman-Belfort has been postponed on several occasions now, and injuries to Weidman cancelled scheduled bouts in December and February.
Belfort, meanwhile, hasn’t fought since November, 2013, when he KO’d Dan Henderson.
