Well shit that’s a good point
Yoel would know
Dat Super-Soldier Serum( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
You do know that Cuba has the best doctors in the world? Their medicine is world-class, and as a Communist nation they "sponsor" their athletes like all Communist countries do. They've doped their athletes with the best.
The car comparison is stupid. What Cuba doesn't have is heavy industry. They grow sugar and tobacco like pros, but they got all their cars and weaponry from the Soviets--until the 1990s.
If Romero still has the Cuba hookup, why wouldn't he go there to dope, instead of getting busted here?
His boys are all natty too
They have some of the best Doctors, not the best and they don't produce most of their medicine they get their shit from somewhere else like most small countries, do you honestly think that cuba have better PEDs than the US?
Whittaker got death rocked in the first fight as well. And KTFO by Thompson too.
good point... they probably cant test him in Cuba.
If Cuba has the greatest doping program in the world, why dont they fare better in the Olympics?
They are below Sweden per capita. Jamaica and New Zealand must have the most advanced drug programs then? If Cubans are so doped up, why can't they win any weightlifting or track&field medals?
You guys refuse to believe that a specimen like Yoel is humanly possible, with or without drugs. One in a billion will have such astounding genetics that mortals can not comprehend its existence.
Super soldier of God serum. Only in Cuba.
That steel has been hard to cut down to 185 since then too.
When TF are these yoel threads gonna end
Exactly, Yoel is just as clean as Randy “The Natural” Couture.
He's the Yoelverine.
thats perfect for him.
I wouldn't say Yoel Romero is singled out because of racism, but more because of xenophobia against Latin America and their athletes and particularly xenophobia against everything Cuban and (ex-)communist. MMA culture on the internet and among fans in general is dominated by Americans and they have their bias against Eastern European and Latin American countries. I noticed that in boxing too. Whenever a fighter is from Russia, ex-Soviet countries or say Cuba and Brazil, he gets twice as much crap for steroids than American fighters or fighters from Western Europe.
For example Vitor being singled out as a "cheater" constantly even though he used TRT when it was legal and mostly fought in the "pre-USADA" days when everyone was on something. On the other hand guys like Henderson, Couture, Mir etc. are liked here because they're Americans and when they cheat it's because "everyone is doing it" and not because they're inherently morally corrupt and phrone to cheating, as it's supposedly the case with Yoel and Vitor and other non-Americans. Chael said some nonsense about Brazil having a vibrant steroid culture and everyone here believed him because American sport fans are just convinced athletes from other countries are inherent cheaters. The only Brazilian who gets a pass is Machida because he's liked by karate nerds here.
Same goes for the dirty tricks. Plenty of MMA fighters are notorious for using eye pokes, grabbing the cage and doing all kinds of things. Tony Ferguson for example, or Michael Bisping who used illegal knees, eye pokes, deliberately spitting out a gumshield and kicks to the groin in his fights. GSP... tons of controversy in his fights too. Yoel actually never used illegal moves that could cripple other fighters, whatever "tricks" he arguably has are just for stalling. Yet he gets more crap than the most notorious eye pokers.
Whenever someone discusses Romero there will always be someone commenting he's a cheater and posting memes and shit, yet when people mention other fighters I named here hardly anyone does it even though they're just as big "cheaters" and if someone does it it's "fighter bashing" and he gets reported.
I think this is because of genuine animosity and butthurt Americans have about Cuba because Cuba humiliated USA in the past. Some SJWs and liberals seem to be butthurt about Romero's christianity too. Many people here can't handle the fact that Cuba produces the best combat sport athletes per capita in the world. Cuba has produced dominant athletes in boxing, judo and wrestling and now even in MMA. It's no coincidence that those fighters are always disliked, in boxing for example Rigo and Lara are constantly bashed and King Kong Ortiz has like 10 fans. When will America overcome this hate?
He got the super solider serum.
Wait how does USADA work in cuba. I'm actually curious. I assume it's hard to send an American agent, do they just hire a local.
Because if it's difficult to test him there, he can do whatever the hell he wants in cube. Cycle it off and come back to Florida
When a country produces PEDs, they are better than a bunch of rando tiny shady corporations trying to make their own PEDs. The 'cream' and the 'clear' were just a quack chemist's creation and that became the #1 PED in the United States for athletes from the Olympics to MLB. That's the level of commitment in the United States, from random quack underground doctors, not a government agency. So just think what the power of government sponsorship in Cuba could create in terms of untraceable PEDs.
The PEDs don't have to be "better" just undetectable, and if they achieve that, they necessarily are "better". USADA is certainly more experienced with U.S. PEDs than those of foreign origin.
