Yoel Romero is so sick of USADA that he’s about to charge them rent

MMA: UFC 213-Romero vs Whittaker Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

For the second time this month, top-ranked Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight contender, Yoel Romero (No. 1), has had to submit his bodily fluids so that United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) can test them for illegal substances.


“Soldier of God” has so far submitted 12 such samples this year, which has the chiseled Cuban, understandably, a little frustrated.

“2 times in the month #iluhju usada. Soon I will start charging rent and you can just stay with me in my house #seeyousoonboi”

Somewhere in Albuquerque, N.M., Jon Jones is laughing his fucking ass off.

Romero most recently dropped a split decision to 185-pound champion, Robert Whittaker, at UFC 225 back in June. The belt was not on the line, though, because Romero failed to make weight ... for a second time. He was expected to next fight Paulo Costa at UFC 230, which is set to go down inside Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., on Nov. 3, 2018, but his broken face apparently still needs more time to heal.

So now we wait, while Romero submits samples on the sidelines ... and does other crazy shit.
