Vitor Belfort was randomly drug tested in February by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and following that drug test, the UFC removed him from his title fight against middleweight champion Chris Weidman at UFC 173.
Since Belfort is not currently licensed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the results of that drug test can not be released by the commission.
However, with Belfort set to appear in front of the commission on June 17th in attempt to get a license to fight Chael Sonnen at UFC 175, Belfort has acknowledge that his drug test in February came back for elevated levels of testosterone.
He revealed this in a statement posted on his Instagram and the pull statement is below.
Following the statement being made by Belfort today, the UFC issued a statement on the fighters attempt to get a license with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
“The UFC organization supports Vitor Belfort’s application for a license to compete in Nevada, and we respect the Nevada Athletic Commission and its licensing process,” the statement said. “Pending Commission approval, we look forward to a great fight between Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 on July 5.”
