9. Vitor Belfort Has Muscles on His Teeth
Just a few months after the new USADA drug testing program took effect in the UFC, Rogan gave an interview to journalist Stephie Haynes where the subject of PED-use took centre stage.
When speaking about the prevalence of PED use in MMA, Rogan used Vitor Belfort as an example. Specifically, Rogan mentioned how Belfort looked in his fight against Luke Rockhold in May of 2013. Belfort, who had a TRT-exemption at the time, defeated Rockhold via 1st round KO in Rockhold’s first UFC fight.
In speaking of Belfort, Rogan referred to him as being so jacked he had “muscles on his teeth” and “on his eyeballs”. Rogan would also state that PED-use was most likely more prevalent in MMA than we know.
The lengthy interview Rogan gave, made waves through an MMA community that was about to discover just how right he was.
