ll, maybe that's why Luke Rockhold was just out advocating for a rematch with Chris Weidman over a potential fight with Yoel Romero? It seemed like an odd request at the time, but made potentially more sensible by the recent revelation that Romero has failed one of his out-of-competition drug tests. The UFC made the official announcement on Tuesday, January 12th.

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.

It looks like there aren't any further details available at the moment, as to just what kind of banned substance Romero tested positive for, or exactly what kind of punishment will be handed down as a result, but Blood Elbow will be sure to keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Good good... new testing weeding out the rats. Liked Romero but always feared (and expected) he would get caught, so yeah... fuk him.

Steroids would explain Yoel's cardio being suspect.

Waits for Tim Kennedy to chime in and call him a "double cheater."

For real tho the guy cheats wherever he can. Probably has for a long time...

Hahahaha. I knew it was coming. Tim forgot to mention his corner dumping more water on him than there is in the whole state of California.

Ok, I'm disappointed again and it seems like guys who claim to be Christian are failing stuff like this. How am I supposed to eventually put together a top 10 Christians in MMA list if they keep failing? This sucks!

That's sarcasm if I've ever heard it. I wonder why he was never tested positive when he was on the wrestling circuit.

Not surprised in the slightest to wake up to this news.

Yoel is such a fraud and a cheat.

If it turned out the guy was a satanist I would not all be surprised.

Well I can at least agree on that. If this is correct then the loss will become a no contest and many believe that Jacare won that fight anyways.
