The UFC podcaster, in the video that Bisping recently posted on his Instagram story, expresses his disbelief at the high testosterone level in Belfort’s body. According to Rogan, he had never seen a human with such a high testosterone level and initially thought it wasn’t real. He marvels at how Belfort was able to achieve this level and how it was affecting his performance in the cage.

In the video, the 55-year-old states about TRT Belfort, “I mean it’s fu*king red lining his engines“. He says that Belfort was able to achieve a level of performance that was far beyond what is normal for a human being. He compares it to a car that is “red lined,” meaning it is operating at maximum capacity. This was due to the testosterone replacement therapy ‘The Phenom’ underwent before the fight.
