Yoel Romero Is Furious, USADA Paid Him 12th Visit In 2018!
Do you remember when Brendan Schaub attacked USADA? He said all the fighters aren’t treated equally. Well, Yoel Romero was visited by USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) 12th time this year! This is the second time in August! Yoel Romero is frustrated. But Jon Jones is probably rolling on the floor laughing.
“2 times in the month #iluhju usada. Soon I will start charging rent and you can just stay with me in my house #seeyousoonboi”
Yoel Romero was defeated at the main event of UFC 225 on June 9, 2018, to Robert Whittaker via controversial split decision. Unfortunately, Romero had 0.2 pounds more, so the fight was held as a non-title match. Soldier Of God is one of the biggest tragedians of this sport. He also missed weight at UFC 221 on February 11, 2018. Despite he defeated Luke Rockhold, he was claimed ineligible for the champion!
Romero was slated to fight Paulo Costa at UFC 230 on November 3, 2018, inside Madison Square Garden, New York. But he was claimed medically unfit. Whittaker broke his orbital bone during their UFC 225 punching festival and it hasn’t recovered yet.
What do you think, did USADA went too far? Paulo Costa was tested eighteen times, Yoel Romero twelve, Holly Holm five. But a repeated offender, Jon Jones, only once!? Do you think it is unfair? Do some fighters have special privileges?
