Since discontinuing his use of testosterone, Belfort, 37, has noticeably lost size. In medical records he posted online, his serum testosterone levels plummeted from 1,472 nanograms per deciliter in February to 142 ng/dL, considered below average, in May.

I'm gonna go ahead and be the devil's advocate here and say that I think Vitor would still beat both Bisping and Rockhold even without TRT.
Stylistically, there's no way either of those guys beat him on the feet. They're both good, technical strikers, and Rockhold has some power, but neither of them are on Vitor's level in a straight-up "kickboxing-style" match, where we're talking the majority of the fight being contested away from the cage and off of the ground. So unless these two poor, cheated fellas intend to exact their respective revenge and right the wrong by holding Vitor down or stalling out a UD against the cage, I don't see it going well for either of them.......again.

Weidman, on the other hand, is going to tear Vitor to shreds without his TRT. THAT stylistic mismatch goes the other way.

If I had to rank the alltime best pure strikers in MMA history I would rank Anderson Silva #1 and Belfort #2.

Yeah I agree with that. There's much faster strikers at the lighter weight classes because, well, they're lighter. But on pure technique and precision, those two are tops.

And I only put Silva above Vitor because he KO's him with that front kick.... so I kinda have to.

Disagree on CroCop even being in the conversation.

On paper he should be right up there, but he's been thoroughly outclassed by fighters on several occasions in fights that were almost entirely stand-up fights. And I don't think it was just his chin failing him, either.

with the exception of his last 3 ufc fights when he was way washed up. i cant remember a loss in his stand up with the exception of getting kod by randleman and being battered by jds.
