Vitor wants a TUE for fight with Weidman

Image by GraphZilla: UFC middleweight Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort has reportedly applied for a testosterone use exemption with the Nevada State Athletic Commission in anticipation of his bout with UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. The main reason why Belfort might be denied is that he was busted for steroids several years ago after a fight. The situation beings up the issue of TRT — should it be allowed in MMA at all, is it an unfair advantage? What about the argument that Vitor needs testosterone, that without it, he could be putting his life in danger?
