Results of Vitor Belfort's random drug test to remain a secret ... for now

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

Cue the speculation in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight number one contender, Vitor Belfort, was subjected to a random drug test by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) when "The Phenom" was tooling around "Sin City" for last month's World MMA Awards.

The results are in.

Unfortunately, we may never find out what they are, as the NSAC has declined a request to release them. That's because Belfort had yet to formally apply for his license to fight at the upcoming UFC 173 event and was not under any obligation to disclose the findings.

From MMA Fighting:

MMAFighting.com submitted a public records request to NAC chairman Francisco Aguilar, who replied that he was not legally allowed to share the results or discuss any aspect of them for that aforementioned reason. MMAFighting.com has attempted to contact Belfort, his wife Joanna, his lawyer Neal Tabachnick and his manager Glenn Robinson to discuss the results of the drug test but to no avail.

The only way those test results will be revealed is if Belfort releases them.

Not that it matters at this point, since the Brazilian has already been removed from the Memorial Day Weekend fight card, following the commission's ban on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). "The Phenom" is expected to get his long-desired title shot at a future date.

After he weans off the controversial treatment. And no, it won't be in Brazil. Until then, the 185-pound strap will be awarded to the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida on May 24, 2014.
