Yoel Romero Facing Possible Lengthy Suspension For Potential Failed UFC 194 Drug Test

As if there wasn’t enough controversy surrounding Yoel Romero in recent months, between “stool gate,” his “post-fight Jesus comments” and the fashion in which he won a close decision over top contender Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in his last fight at UFC 194 in December, UFC Middleweight star Yoel Romero is now facing the most serious controversial situation thus far in his UFC career.

It was announced this week that Romero is facing a possible violation of the new, strict Anti-Doping Policy, one that could result in a lengthy suspension, taking Romero from being potentially next in line for a UFC Middleweight title shot to sitting out long enough that he might not even be in the top ten discussion by the time he fights again.

UFC officials issued the following statement regarding Romero’s potential Anti-Doping Policy violation:

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Yoel Romero of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Romero. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.

Romero’s manager, Malki Kawa, issued the following statement to MMAFighting.com:

“We are gathering information and will have no further comment at this time.”
