Rogan revealed a story on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast about what a doctor said about Romero after examining him.
“Well, did you hear me talking about Yoel Romero?” Rogan said (via Michael Fiedel of The Body Lock MMA). “[UFC President] Dana White gave me this information. They brought in Yoel Romero because he had a fractured orbital in one of his fights and, they bring him in, and he gets examined by this doctor, and the doctor calls the UFC up afterwards (sic) and says, ‘Where did you get this guy?' ‘I’ve never seen anyone like him,' ‘Oh, yeah, he’s an amazing athlete,' ‘No, no, no. I’ve never seen a human being like this.’ ‘This is the most unusual human being I’ve ever seen in my 40 years of practicing medicine.'”
Romero has long been talked about for his physical appearance, but he has never failed a drug test while under a UFC contract.
The UFC color commentator also revealed that the doctor examining Romero said Romero’s eye tendons are four times larger than the average persons.
“[The doctor] said [Romero’s] tendons in his eyes are four times larger than a normal person’s. He goes, ‘His physical structure is different than any human being I’ve ever seen in my life,’” says Rogan.
