USADA is the worst thing to happen to MMA. Literally, ever. Vitor Belfort was an absolute killer when he had a TRT exemption but USADA came into play and changed all of that for UFC fighters. Vitor retired this year and is now able to peruse the free agency market and USADA (thankfully) is no longer in the picture for him.
This leaves Vitor able to fight anywhere including places like Japan and Russia where there is no testing and no questions. His career was average before his second stint in the UFC, before USADA came into the mix.
That was the best Vitor we’ve ever seen and hopefully we see him back again.
