UFC Quick Quote: Yoel Romero claims water, not poop, was to blame for dark stain on shorts

New, 37 comments

"This is a funny question. In the third round, there was a dark substance on your shorts. There was some funny stuff on Twitter.com during the fight, videos going around. What was that substance? Was it just sweat? What was it exactly?"

"It was water … sweat."

-- Any more shitty questions for Yoel Romero? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White wants to know! One brave mixed martial arts (MMA) reporter at the UFC Fight Night 35 post-fight press conference (watch it here), actually asked Yoel Romero the one question for which everyone -- at least on social media -- wanted an answer: Did he "shart" in the midst of his Middleweight scrap against Derek Brunson at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia? Romero, a former Cuban Olympic wrestler, answered rather succinctly through an interpreter. After a long pause -- and some highlights from his winning performance -- White ended the question and answer session with a fart funny. Meanwhile, we're left to ponder whether or not "Soldier of God" joins Tim Sylvia on the short list of fighters who are guilty of rocking dirty diapers inside the Octagon. You be the judge.
