UFC Quick Quote: Chris Weidman will enjoy beating up a 'juice head' like Vitor Belfort

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

Though Chris Weidman isn't a big fan of TRT, he says he'd get more satisfaction by defeating a "juiced up" Vitor Belfort when the two collide for the UFC middleweight title later this year.

"I feel like I'm on another level. I think it's a great fight for me. I think I can beat him no matter what he's on. I actually take more privilege if I'm beating up a juice head. If that's what you would consider him."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Chris Weidman isn't a big fan of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) or the fact that Vitor Belfort has been granted permission to be on it, despite his past transgressions (read his stance here). Nevertheless, during a recent interview on "The MMA Hour," Weidman said he'll defeat "The Phenom" regardless of "what he's on" -- legal or not -- when the two collide later this year for the 185-pound strap. While he stopped short of accusing Belfort of dabbling in prohibited substances, he did label the Brazilian bomber a "juice head," a moniker often given to people who use certain types of drugs. Belfort earned the right to face Wiedman for his title after racking up three straight first-round knockout victories over Michael Bisping, Luke Rockhold and Dan Henderson. Chris, meanwhile, retained his title by defeating Anderson Silva once again at UFC 168 on Dec. 28, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada (details). And though a date for the bout has yet to be determined, the hype for the much-anticipated bout is well underway.
