    “Given that Mr. Romero has publicly discussed his case, we can confirm that he did test positive for a prohibited substance,” USADA rep Ryan Madden wrote in an email to MMAjunkie.

    “At this time we are investigating the circumstances surrounding his positive test to determine the appropriate outcome, in accordance with the rules.

    “It is also important to remember that there is a full and fair legal process to handle the adjudication of any case, and all athletes are provided full due process before any decision is reached.”

    Yoel is all natural. That body was built with thousands of hours of shakeweighting.

    Romero is innocent

    The witchhunt that is being orchestrated against him is nothing more than racism.

    If he did it, I hope he's busted. If he's innocent, I hope he's exonerated. Simple.

    Tim Means is Caucasian and was tested 2 times in 2 months.

    Is that racist too?

    Tim Means was actually guilty with evidence while the case against Romero has no merit.

    No merit? How so? Did he not test positive for a prohibited substance? That's all I know about it.

    They just said he tested positive for a banned substance.

    Or is that not true because USADA is racist against Cubans?

    I'm pretty sure that as an athlete he certainly has access to what supplements are prohibited by the UFC. Whether it's all out steroids or just something as simple as a protein shake that happens to have a banned substance in it. He should have done the work necessary to determine if he could use whatever he was on.

    USADA had actually stuffed up Romero's test a contaminated sample was used to test positive.

    Which now USADA have to investigate on how they got it wrong.

    Mistakes like that due to incompentence destroy a fighters career.

    How do you know that the case has no merit? Do you have access to Romero's samples?
