Middleweight fighter Yoel Romero (11-1-0) has been notified of a potential doping infraction by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
Romero, 38, recently defeated Ronaldo Souza at UFC 194 and is currently ranked #2 in the middleweight division after Chris Weidman.
The UFC issued an online statement on its website:
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Yoel Romero of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Romero. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
Confirmation of the sample test results by the USADA is expected to be forthcoming.
