It’s a good day to be Yoel Romero. That’s because a New Jersey court awarded “Soldier of God” $27.45 million after winning a lawsuit against Gold Star Performance Products, the company behind the contaminated substance that was the root of his failed drug test in 2016.

After striking a deal with United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA), his original nine-month suspension was reduced after Romero threatened to bring his case to arbitration, where he could’ve faced a two-year ban from mixed martial arts (MMA) had it not been resolved in his favor. 

Not content, Romero sued Gold Star Performance products last year, and now everything is coming up roses for the hulking Middleweight. ESPN’s Ariel Helwani has the details straight from Abraham Kawa, Romero’s manager, and his lawyer, Howard Jacobs. 

“$27.45 million is the total Yoel was awarded — $3 million for lost wages, $3 million for reputable harm, $3 million for emotional damage ... multiplied that times three for the state of New Jersey ‘Consumer Fraud Act.’”

Minus legal fees, of course.

Exactly.

No way does that shit stain vitamin company have 27 million or any means to acquire it. Yoel will barely see a fraction. 

This judgement is theatre.

This, he will probably owe more to his lawyer than he collects unfortunately.

No hes not losingmoney. People are just hating on Yoel because they think he gamed the system (he just may have).

His lawyer will make off like a bandit no doubt but Yoel will see a good amount of money.

Nobodies hating on him. Just hard to believe some bumfuck supplement company has even a fraction of that kind of cash laying around.

I agree they dont seem to have that kind of money but who know. We dont know their financial situation. 

 

What I'm saying is that Yoel is not going to lose money in this.

Very happy for Yoel! I never understood how guys could get popped for tainted supplements and it was just normal without any lawsuits. You can’t just put steroids in your supplements and think everything is normal.

Happy to see some accountability for that incident.

Lawyer fees likely come out of a % of what he wins, so they get paid first.

I can’t see a UFC fighter of his status being financially able to fund the case in advance.

Lol never even heard of that company. Doubt they're worth more than 5 million let alone 27.
