It's that name that keeps Arum fighting through the hassles of keeping Chavez going. His pay per view buys always easily top 1 million, and perhaps could threaten 2 million if Chavez wins and gets a bout this summer against Andre Ward or Gennady Golovkin.
The Nevada commission had granted therapeutic use exemptions for several fighters in recent years, including contenders Chael Sonnen and Frank Mir, but had never approved synthetic testosterone for a fighter who had failed a drug test for anabolic steroids.
The 36 year old Belfort has been open about his use of synthetic testosterone in recent years. His sanctioned steroid use has coincided with a career resurgence for the former UFC light heavyweight champion, who won three consecutive bouts by early round knockout in 2013 while fighting in his native Brazil.
Weidman took the title from longtime UFC champion Anderson Silva last July and defended it in a rematch in December when Silva broke his leg while kicking Weidman's knee.
Chavez celebrated the baby step of the many needed to resurrect his career when his entourage hoisted a huge fake check made out in Vera's name Friday as the boxers faced each other for photo. Block letters were stamped over the check: VOIDED.
Vitor Belfort dropped out of his upcoming UFC middleweight title shot on Thursday a few hours after the Nevada Athletic Commission banned testosterone replacement therapy.
There are still plenty of questions about Chavez, the son of the Mexican boxing legend. Chavez (47 1 1, 32 KOs) has had his career stall with one fight in the last 17 months along with one drug suspension (marijuana) and one DUI since 2012.

"We believe our athletes should compete based on their natural abilities and on an even playing field," White said. "We also intend to honor this ruling in international markets where, due to a lack of governing bodies, the UFC oversees regulatory efforts for our live events. We encourage all athletic commissions to adopt this ruling."

Machida is another former UFC light heavyweight champion from Brazil. He is getting a title shot against Weidman in just his third bout at 185 pounds after winning four of his last five fights overall.
It was last time. Prada Bags Pictures Vera (23 7, 14 KOs), the Austin, Texas based journeyman, may have gained more notice on the televised series "The Contender" than he has in world title fights. Late in the training for the first fight last year in September, Chavez told his camp he would not make weight, and a late negotiation allowed Chavez to hit the scale at 173 pounds as long as he gave up a portion of the $2.5 million purse.
"As other jurisdictions may follow suit, I am going to drop my TRT program and compete in MMA without it," Belfort said in a statement provided to Fox, the UFC's broadcast partner. "Given the time constraints involved between now and my proposed next bout in May, I have determined not to apply for a license to fight in Nevada at this time."
this week. "So I think I have to do better next time. I have to eliminate some those big shots he landed that got the crowd going."
UFC 173 is the next major card in Las Vegas, the UFC's hometown. The influential Nevada commission voted unanimously on Thursday to stop granting therapeutic use exemptions for TRT, closing a widely criticized loophole that allowed mixed martial arts fighters to compete on steroids.

"He's got to show himself in this fight," Arum said, "Not only win, but win well."

The first question was answered Friday. Chavez is taking his training and money seriously. He made the 168 pound limit at Friday's weigh in, and avoided forfeiting $250,000 from his purse to Vera.
Chavez landed heavy shots in the middle rounds, then tired noticeably under Vera's body shots from the eighth round onward. It was a controversial unanimous decision for Chavez.
a card that includes two time Olympic Gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine against Orlando Salido (40 12 2, 28 KOs) of Mexico.
Salido was stripped of his world featherweight title by the WBO on Friday after he missed the 126 pound limit, meaning Lomachenko, who said his family lives about 300 miles from the civil unrest in his country and was unaffected, can win the vacated title in just his second pro bout after a 396 1 amateur career.
"I dieted for, like, two months," said Chavez, who showed the same 167 1/2 pounds as Vera. "I've prepared pretty well. It's not a problem for this fight."
Belfort was scheduled to fight 185 pound champion Chris Weidman at UFC 173 on May 24. His title shot was given to Lyoto Machida by UFC President Dana White.
"I made weight easily," Chavez said after a week in which Arum claimed the fighter "won't let me near his scale."
Belfort claimed he needed TRT because of low testosterone, an argument which generated wide criticism because he failed a drug test for elevated testosterone in 2006 following a bout in Las Vegas for the Pride promotion against Dan Henderson, another acknowledged TRT user.
