UFC’s Yoel Romero: The People’s Champ

Yoel Romero told Ariel Helwani on Monday that he will not be fighting Paulo Costa at UFC 230 this November, but the “Soldier of God” still finessed a sweet new contract, which makes him the clear winner. The 41-year-old lab experiment gone right found himself in hot water just two years ago when he was flagged by USADA. The MMA world took the opportunity to turn against poor Romero.
