Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC, the premier Mixed Martial Arts promotion in the world has been riddled with questions regarding the use of performance enhancing drugs by his athletes over the years, but more often than not, the boss of the promotion has chosen to stay silent on the matter, letting the UFC officials do the talking.
But this time, it seems as if White has finally seen the light on the dangers that performance enhancing drugs pose to the sport, and has vowed that things will no longer remain the same in the promotion from now on, adding that the rules will become stringent for the fighters who have Therapeutic Use Exemptions as well, which is more commonly referred to in the business as Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT.
And the UFC’s Middleweight fighter Vitor Belfort is one person, who Dana White will have a close eye on, with the Brazilian legend having failed a dope test once back in 2005 and was given an exemption for the use of TRT in his most recent fight against English Middleweight Michael Bisping. However, the legendary Brazilian has stated that he has never made any secret about sharing his medical history with the doctors of the UFC.
He further mentioned that he undergoes weekly tests to ensure that his levels are normal and within the stipulated limits set by the UFC and the promotion knows that he is not a cheater. Speaking to a Brazilian media outlet, Belfort stated that the UFC has known for some time that he uses TRT. He stated that he always has a medical monitoring and a UFC official also accompanies him during the process as well. He stated that although many people are averse to it, he is not.

Team Rhodes Scholars was just a few steps away from getting the title of Tag Team Championships. But due to their decision to split has really proved very detrimental to the tag team division because this team was the only team which could stand against the very powerful Team Hell No. Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes are now struggling hard to make it as single players. Although Kane and Daniel Bryan were the ones behind resurrecting WWE tag team division because the quality of the same had fallen after the golden eras of 1980s, but the Team Rhodes also had played a very important in building up the fan base for the same.
What Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes could have done together is not possibly possible when they try to do it single-handedly although it was known to all that the team was not going to be there forever. Primo and Epico, the Usos and the Prime Time Players are also good teams but they are not as good as Team Rhodes Scholars and not to that level that they can defeat Team Hell No. it is quite clear that without the Team Rhodes Scholars, the Tag Team Championship is going to face a big blow in terms of popularity.
No one has been able to make out why WWE took such a decision. Even Cody Rhodes’ elder brother, Goldust (Dustin Rhodes) had decided not to make any comment on this decision of the WWE. He is very hopeful about his little brother that he would be able to make it big even if he went out there alone. Cody had banished him within 10 minutes of ring bell and he was delighted at his brother’s improvement. Still the team could have been there a little longer to boost up Rhodes and Sandow’s rise.
