    Wouldn't be an issue IMO if the punishment out weighted the reward ........

    Could you imagine a commissioner in any major sport making a similar declaration? Goodell being hopeful that Manning can finally piss clean so he can play in the Super Bowl.

    One way around it is that if Machida wins, I hope he does as it would be nice to see him as champ again, they could hold the fight in Brazil which would be pretty flipping huge to have Machida v Belfort in Brazil.

    Its a gamble tho.

    Could you imagine Vitor blitzing right through Weidman and pissing hot right after as well?

    That would really suck

    aka we know he was jacking up bigtime, we were ok with it, hence why he fought Brazil plenty times to ensure he would pass the drug test pre/post fight when it came to fighting in the US but we didn't expect the random test and it happened at a point when he had more testosterone in his body than the entire population of Nevada

    Dana White says the results of Vitor Belfort's February drug test in Nevada are 'absolutely irrelevant'
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/5/23...-diaz-mma-news
    "I think it's all going to work out," White told media Thursday afternoon in Las Vegas. "I'm telling you, the whole Vitor thing, you guys know. Vitor drives me nuts, but Vitor has gotten a bad rap on this whole thing. He's gotten a bad rap."

    Asked if much of that negative press has been self-imposed by withholding the results from the February drug test in Nevada, White insists Belfort isn't purposefully being secretive.

    "He's not," said White. "When he showed up in Nevada the thing that was bad about that is he showed up and [the NSAC was] like, 'You're on testosterone?' 'Yea, I'm on testosterone. Everybody know that.' 'You shouldn't have come to Nevada until you were off it.' I'm so glad TRT is gone. So much better for the sport."

    As for the results of the surprise drug screening Belfort was asked to take by the NSAC while appearing at the 2013 World MMA Awards, White says they're immaterial.

    "It's absolutely irrelevant because I'm telling you right now we tested the s**t out of [Belfort] before every fight he fought," said White. "I don't remember at what point it was but I said, 'Believe me, we're going to put him through the wringer with the TRT thing' and we did. He complied to everything he was asked to do. He was tested. He was always within his limits. Vitor Belfort was never cheating."
    "The thing is with Vitor Belfort is he was never over his [testosterone] limits when he fought. Here's the thing, lets say he came into Nevada and his levels were off the charts. He wasn't fighting. Came [to Nevada] to talk about getting licensed and the thing was, 'Welcome to Nevada. You want to be licensed here? You have to stop taking TRT.' As a guy who's not fighting, you can go around do whatever the hell you want with TRT, right?"
