UFC anti-doping partner USADA today confirmed Yoel Romero tested positive for a prohibited substance in the wake of the UFC middleweight’s admission to failing a test.

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

He alleges a tainted supplement brand. The commission is hinting the second sample exonerates him. Such a cluster fuck.

I agree. Testing is a mess, procedures seem convoluted, reporting of testing is not concise and misleading.

Yeah and before this article came out I mentioned an idea of Romero vs Robert Whitaker providing Whitaker won against Natal. That would be a really good fight for both and a way for Romero to stay busy while Rock hold vs Weidman rematched.

I would like to see what happens here with this situation. If these allegations hold up to be true against Romero this would make the once clustered top end of MW not so clustered anymore.

Think about it. If Weidman losses again to Rockhold, he won't fight for the Title for at least 2 yrs. It would be hard to throw Jacare in there seeing how he lost a SD to Romero, Romero 'could' be suspended.

So then what seemed like far fetched ideas like Anderson Silva fighting for the Title and guys like Robert Whitaker getting put into discussion are now no longer far fetched and actually a real idea now. Hmmm....
