New, comments

This sets a significant precedent for future tainted supplement cases and it’s a back door look at fighter pay.

Hard to say whether Yoel Romero will actually collect any money or if the supplement maker, Gold Star Performance Products will declare bankruptcy and disappear into the ether.

One other curious detail is the $3 million in lost wages. Romero’s lawyers would have to have provided some financial records to justify that amount. It’ll be interesting if the ripple effect of these numbers resonate with any of the UFC’s underpaid elites, like Kelvin Gastelum, who got paid a disclosed $150k for his shot at the interim middleweight title.

Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
