    Not sure how it works outside of the U.S., but does USADA do intensive drug testing when the events are held overseas or done by another organization?

    Romero couldn't make it. He probably spent lots of energy trying to cut before the weigh-ins. He's gassed out in previous fights after the 1st round and finished with a KO in the third.

    Not hating on the guy. He's a great fighter. Just wanting to know more about how drug tests are done outside of the U.S., if they are as strict.

    Interesting. I've never really seen the connection be made before.

    USADA tests for the UFC all over the world. Romero trains and lives in Florida. He didn't arrive in Oz until a week ago. So he started the Dbol a week before the fight???

    Dude his last SIX KO WINS all happened in the third round. Stfu with this "no cardio" bullshit. In between those 6 ko wins he also has 2 decision wins. His cardio is and has always been just fine.

    bro romero has been doing drug testing for close to two decades now since his olympic days, his biggest wins aren't even weidman or rockhold or even jacare, it's fuckin USADA, he is the only athlete in mma that a got suspension reversed and record cleared on their books, if he takes drugs which i don't believe he does he will never get truly caught out, either way love him as a fighter

    Gun to my head id be more comfortable saying he’s on something than not.

    He’s beating the system somehow. Nobody looks like that at fuckin 40.

    Deserves the benefit of the doubt, but if he popped it would not be even faintly surprising. Guy is more ripped now than he was at age 20.

    Guy is in better shape and far leaner at 40 than 10 years ago. It’s pretty obvious he’s cheating the system.

    Romero is the only athlete that survived the USADA era to still look like hulk.

    Interesting thread title for someone who is not hating and only interested about how drug tests are done outside of the U.S.

    USADA is getting stricter all the time, if Romero is on PEDs he's doing a damned good job getting around the system. We've seen guys more established, who undoubtedly have more experienced training camp, getting caught and seen it more than once.
