    Something weird about Romero.

    He hasn't seen his kid in like 8 years for no good reason.

    I was genuinely waiting to see proof that this is a Jones thread ad I was reading the op.

    Romero is Cuban/Black. He’s built differently, and his physique will manifest itself accordingly.

    Truth is, up close in person, these dudes aren’t as massive as they appear on television. Cheik Congo looks like an action figure on TV, but I was a couple of feet from him at the Mandalay in Vegas, and the dude looked like your average black dude who you play basketball with at the park. Slim and cut, but not as impressive and imposing as what you’ll see on TV.

    I believe that he’s clean.

    He’s literally in the 1% of “freak of human natures”. Thing is that they’re just not that common in MMA but they do exist. Same goes for Woodley. Woodley is about to turn 36 in less than a month. I’m pretty sure he’ll have the same physique when he turns 40 as well.

    Aside from the elite physical god given genes which Romero and Woodley are blessed with if you follow them you know how hard they train (you’ll never see them blow up outside of camp like majority of fighters) and more importantly they’re savage when it comes to their nutrition/diet on a regular basis.

    Now take somebody like Lombard I think he’s a freak, trains hard and strict with the diet and can prob look the same or close to what he does even if he were clean. Yes, I think he’s dirty.

    Like BMI means anything. At the height of my training I was 'obese'.

    There's better metrics around.

    Look, I love Romero. He's one of my favorite fighters. He's very clearly an athletic freak and when I say freak, I mean he has the top 0.000001% genetics. But I still recognize the fact that there is very little chance that he's completely natural.

    Why does a “ Greek God “ or “ Freak of nature “ need to take an over the counter supplement ?

    Some ppl here are convinced some fighters that have never popped, are on the juice.

    There’s no way they are going to believe a guy that did pop doesn’t juice.

    If a guy like MM doesn’t take supplements. Why would Romero have to take them ?

    Joe Rogan recklessly accuses people of shit and then backtracks as soon as they confront him or call him out on it.

    That's probably why he has a strong habit of talking shit about foreign fighters- because they're the least likely to hear of his bullshit and respond to it.

    Was the supplement on his list of declared substances though?

    There's a reason USADA & NSAC keep those lists.

    There is a little more to it than the USADA blindly accepting the tainted argument defends.

    USADA also goes to random supplement stores and tests the same tainted supplement in the same lot.

    Yes it was and it wasn't on the ban list until Romero tested positive.

    None of this matters, the man passed a lie detector test.

    Good enough, let the GOAT fight.

    Makes sense...until they still go with a suspension, so it isnt like they trust him 100%, or trust the results enough to actually clear the fighter, they just lower the suspension.
