One of the more intriguing fights taking place at next month’s UFC 205 event will be a middleweight division fight between former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman and Yoel Romero. Weidman is going on the offensive early against his opponent.
Weidman recently spoke with The MMA Hour about Romero’s past usage and his recent suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
"It's personal because the guy, he's a gifted athlete, he just failed for steroids, and this is the biggest fight of my life," Weidman said. "I don't like when people take steroids and cheat, especially when they walk into a cage, it pisses me off. And then when you have all these excuses and people start feeling bad for you, it pisses me off. Either way I still go crazy, these guys are taking steroids, I was in this sport pre-USADA and I was used to the idea all these guys were taking steroids and now they're getting caught for it. At the end of the day I was fighting guys on steroids even before this and now they're getting caught for it."
Romero will be competing for the first time since getting busted by USADA for using illegal substances, his original suspension was for two years, but it was cut down by USADA to just six month as it was revealed he'd ingested a tainted supplement unkowingly.
UFC 205 will be taking place on Saturday, November 12th from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor headlining.
