Yoel Romero could retire from MMA if he wanted, and live quietly the rest of his life.
Cuban manager Abraham Kawa revealed that the former belt challenger has received $ 27.45 million dollars from the New Jersey court following his lawsuit against Gold Star Performance Products.
Romero complained after testing positive for USADA because of the supplement. Kawa revealed the information on Ariel Helwani MMA Show.
The UFC fighter was represented by attorney Howard Jacobs. “The Soldier of God” received 3 million for every lost salary, damage to his image, as well as emotional damage, and that total tripled under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Law.
“Money is secondary to clearing Yoel Romero’s name,” Kawa wrote on Twitter.
Romero tested positive outside of the competition period on December 16, 2015. According to the complaint, Romero ingested the substance after using the Shred Rx supplement, where the Cuban “stated that he used the product with his colleagues and read the label” After USADA determined that I was using a contaminated supplement, the suspension was reduced to six months.
Romero will face Paulo Costa at UFC 241 on August 17 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
