At last night’s UFC Fight Night 77, aging TRT refugee Vitor Belfort did well, smashing fellow hormonally-challenged vet Dan Henderson in just over two minutes with the kind of fury usually reserved for guys on the sauce. Okay, let’s give credit where credit is due – that was a sudden and violent win, and those are always nice.
But now the Brazilian is feeling emboldened, and for his next opponent he wants… Luke Rockhold?

A few things to keep in mind: Though Belfort KO’d Rockhold two and a half years ago with a spinning kick, Belfort was so hopped up on synthetic testosterone his urine sample grew a beard and smoked a cigar. Now the Brazilian is off the SuperSoldier Serum, and while he crushed old man Henderson, his prior fight – against champ Chris Weidman – didn’t end so well for him. In other words, the regulated version of Belfort now would get killed against Rockhold.
Be careful what you wish for, Vitor. You just might get it.
