Question 1. Who is the doctor?
UFC won’t give names. Is it Tim Trainor, Keith Kizer’s friendly doctor for the Nevada State Athletic Commission (who isn’t an endocrinologist)? Is it Dr. Jeff Davidson, the emergency room doctor that UFC leans on heavily for overseas events? If not either one of those doctors, then who is it? And why hasn’t the name been released?
Question 2. Did Belfort pay for the doctor to give the hall pass or has the doctor being paid/reimbursed for services by the UFC?
Remember when Rampage Jackson claimed that his doctor billed the UFC last year? He would later claim that a “Russian doctor” who hooked him up with testosterone was paid with money out of his own pocket…
Zach Arnold brings up some great points here about the kind of things we should be wondering after the revelation that Belfort is yet another fighter with a medical clearance to use TRT.
I'm glad to know that I wasn't the only one doing a double take when the UFC included the information about Belfort in their press release announcing Thiago Tavares' suspension on Wednesday.
