Here is what he said:
“This is done by USADA and Florida officials at random, but always done for Title bouts- but this of course was just an exhibition.”
He also said about Evander Holyfield being denied a license 16 years ago:
“For the pro fight in past yes but not aware of specific details. This of course was just exhibition though. Was a lot of inputs involved to allow the Boxing Exhibition and Evander saw specialists recently and passed all tests. We wanted to give him opportunity with close eye for the boxing exhibition. He absolutely could have won in my opinion and was favored by many but Vitor just poured it on. And most importantly he got home safe.”
After taking several unanswered blows, the referee called for a stoppage with 12 seconds remaining in the first round and awarded the TKO win to Belfort.
The former UFC star Anderson Silva also took on fellow UFC legend Tito Ortiz in the event’s co-featured bout. Although both men spent a combined 26 years competing inside the octagon, Saturday’s bout marked the first time they met as opponents.
