    Default Dana White: Vitor Belfort can fight anywhere; we're not hiding him in Brazil

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/8/19/46...-hiding-him-in

    That's not the case, according to UFC President Dana White, who addressed the issue in his post-fight media scrum this past weekend.

    "They say [Vitor] can't fight here because of the TRT thing and that is complete bullshit. Vitor Belfort can fight here, he can fight in Vegas, he can fight in any of these places. Whether they give him TRT or they don't. It's not a given that he has to give up the treatment in Vegas. The guy has been busted before. He's had some issues and he's going to have to go before the athletic commission and they would decide what they are going to do."
    White further elaborated that just because Belfort needs to go before the commission to get approval for TRT, that doesn't mean UFC is protecting him by keeping him in Brazil lately. They've done it for a very specific reason and that's because the popular Brazilian fighter puts butts in seats.

    "That doesn't mean that he can't fight in Vegas or that Vitor Belfort is banned from Vegas and something crazy is going to happen. Or that we're hiding him in Brazil because he's on TRT. That is stupid, stupid Internet shit. Vitor Belfort is a big draw in Brazil so he fights in Brazil. Same thing with Aldo and a lot of these other Brazilian champions. If any of you have ever been to Brazil, Brazilians want to see Brazilians kick other people's asses, not other Brazilian's asses."

    I bet Vitor just trains in the jungle, Kickboxer style. Although I don't know how he gets all of his TRT out there.

    When they have him fight somewhere else, other than Brazil, I will believe it. Dana claimed this before, and said that Vitor's next fight would not be in Brazil. Where'd his last fight take place; after making that comment?

    Well it is Dana White we are talking about.
    He says something, and always the opposite happens.

    So yes, they are hiding him in Brazil and his next fight will be there again.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Everyone knows DW is full of shit. We get it. No need to be the Capt of the Dana White Lies bandwagon. The shtick is getting old.

    Seriously wtf is the deal with Erik Silva only fighting in Brazil am I the only one suspecting something fishy going on there?
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
