Belfort is preparing to fight Dan Henderson on November 7th at UFC Fight Night 77, and recently he spoke with the media in Brazil. While doing so, Belfort reportedly had this to say about Weidman (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“Did he stop cycling? Wasn’t him the one to stop cycling, because his testosterone was low?” Belfort said, while referring to the fact that Weidman tested for much lower testosterone levels than the Brazilian, heading into their May 23rd fight.
“I was doing a treatment and paid the price. But have you ever thought about it, or no? Nobody ever talked about it. My levels were normal, his levels were low. How a kid at his age has low testosterone?”
Well, the middleweight champ was quickly informed of Belfort’s comments, and Weidman tweeted this in response:
@mmamania lol yup cycle off position for life. I would never cheat like that guy has been proven to do.
