The pair discussed many interesting things inside and outside of UFC, including a vegan diet, legendary fighters, and training camps. Furthermore, they also talked about how fighters use illegal moves to get through a fight.

While talking about a recent incident in a UFC fight between Gillian Robertson and Priscila Cachoeira, Rogan recalled the time when the UFC Hall of Famer Vitor Belfort used TRT.

He suggested Belfort should compete in One Championship, considering his use of TRT. Rogan said, “Juicy Vitor, though, is one of my favorite fighters to watch. I think juicy Vitor should be fighting in like One FC or something like that where they let him be juicy where everybody is juicy. “

While agreeing to Rogan’s views, ‘Chito’ responded by saying, “Yeah, go fight heavyweights or skinny guys. Go f*k around there But Juicy Vitor in the UFC f*ked so many people.”

Later, Rogan also discussed the rise of the former UFC fighter with the use of TRT and also commented on his downfall in the promotion. He said, “Yeah, he f****d a lot of people, man. He was so scary he was so confident. Juicy Vitor was just throwing wheel kicks at Luke Rockhold, and sh*t, oh my god. So when Vitor got off the TRT, then everybody was like, give me that fight.”

“Chris Weidman got that fight, Chris Weidman beat the f**k out of Vito and that was post-TRT. Vitor’s whole body had deflated. It was crazy to see. Like there was nothing left.”

What’s Next for Vitor Belfort

‘The Phenom’, after losing his title fight against Chris Weidman in 2015, competed in six more UFC bouts. However, he won only two fights. The UFC Hall of Famer retired from professional fighting in 2018 after his knockout loss to Lyoto Machida.

Later, the former UFC fighter announced his return. However, it wasn’t inside the UFC octagon. ‘The Phenom’ dipped his hand in another form of combat sports, i.e. Boxing.

He took on the boxing legend Evander Holyfield inside the ring. Interestingly, the former UFC title challenger knocked out the boxing legend in the first round of the eight-round match.

After securing such a stunning win, Vitor Belfort will look to compete in more boxing fights in the future. However, he is yet to receive an opponent for his second bout.

Nowadays, many UFC fighters have turned their attention towards boxing. One of them is the former welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley. He has competed in two boxing matches against Jake Paul. Unfortunately, he lost both of them.

However, ‘The Chosen One’ can be one good opponent for Belfort. As both are ex-UFC fighters, and also Woodley will look to bounce in the win column. A boxing match between the former UFC fighters will garner a lot of attention from the fans too.
