UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero was notified of a potential anti-doping policy violation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) earlier this week, UFC officials confirmed. The violation stems from an out-of-competition drug test, either prior to or following his UFC 194 win over Ronaldo Souza last December.
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 is undefeated inside the Octagon; his most notable wins are against "Jacare," Lyoto Machida, and Tim Kennedy, over the course of a year and a half. No specific details regarding the potential failed drug test were released. Keep it locked to MMAjr.co for the latest on this situation.
