Vitor Belfort thinks he will be licensed anywhere he tries

Vitor Belfort has acclimated to training without Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) and is ready to step back inside the Octagon. If all goes as planned, Vitor will get the winner of the UFC Middleweight championship bout between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida at UFC 175.

Belfort was recently cleared to fight by the CABMMA in Brazil, but the question remains if Belfort would be able to get licensed in the United States. Vitor has not fought in the US since 2011, and 4 of his last 5 bouts have been in Brazil.

In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Vitor explained that he is ready to fight anywhere in this world, and being licensed is not an issue:

My intention is to fight for the belt. I got a license in Brazil from the exams I did. What I want now is get licenses in every state because the UFC is a global company, and I want to fight whenever there’s a fight. If I need a license to fight in Mars, I’m ready.

Belfort had a surprise drug test taken in February, but the results were never officially revealed. We shall soon find out if that drug test will void him from fighting in Nevada or anywhere else in the US.
