Is it safe to get emotionally invested in Yoel Romero?
I’m asking for a friend. A friend who was… shall we say… burned by the fact that Romero is an explosive fighter capable of sudden, violent finishes and sudden, violent suspensions from USADA for illegal substances.
You see, Romero has beaten some tough dudes – like former champ Chris Weidman and Tim Kennedy – and has earned a spot among the elite of the middleweight division. He’s even fighting Luke Rockhold for the interim belt at UFC 221 this weekend.
But if he wins, and then fails a drug test… then what?
Then my friend’s heart will be broken.
