Yoel Romero Notified Of Potential Anti-Doping Violation
MMAWeekly – The United States Anti-Doping Agency on Tuesday informed the UFC of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation by middleweight contender Yoel Romero. The potential violation stems from a recent out-of-competition drug test. USADA is the official administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Program.
Romero most recently fought at UFC 194 in December, where he won a split-decision victory over Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza. It was his seventh consecutive victory, and put him in position for title shot consideration.
Should he be found guilty of an anti-doping violation, however, Romero will fall well down the list of potential middleweight challengers.
Following the public revelation of Romero’s potential infraction, he quickly became a prime target for other fighters on social media.
@YoelRomeroMMA grabbing the cage, kicks to the groin, long breaks between rounds, PEDs, not sure if there are any ways left for you to cheat

This seems kind of shocking to me. How can a guy with 0% body fat have a potential anti-doping violation? This doesn’t fit what I pictured a steroid user looking like. Ha, I had you going for a minute… This is exactly what I pictured. It makes me feel a little better about myself too. I walk around all fat and lazy but at least my body is crafted from no work and a lack of motivation. You can’t build that with chemicals and a gym. These guys should feel horrible about themselves. Actually, I am pretty sure they already do…hence injecting their bodies with horrible substances in order to gain a little confidence. I don’t think Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy are helping Yoel feel good with those tweets. YOEL-O!!!
