But to be fair, he's willing to jump through the same hoops if it means "setting an example."

Even at 3-0 in the UFC its stuff like this that makes the UFC upper brass hate him so much. Once Romero knocks this guy unconscious he'll go the way of Jon Fitch and Yuskin Okami.

I agree. Dude is built like the Terminator. I'd probably be a bit suspicious too. Regardless of whether he is juicing or not, that dude is JACKED. I don't know that he is, and to the best of my knowledge, prior to now, nobody had said a thing about the possibility of him being on steroids, but still, easy conclusion to draw when you look like an old He-Man action figure.

Wasn't Romero also busted in the past for something like this either roids or test....maybe I'm wrong, but yeah, I wouldn't doubt him being on something performance enhancing.

Good thinking Kennedy, I would try anything to get out of fighting that genetic freak to! I feel a future injury coming up if he passes..

Kennedy KO3. He won't fade late like others have. Should be fun.

I'll be rooting for a clean Romero and for Kennedy to get clean KTFO.

I can't blame him either. Romero's team is notorious for failed tests and he's larger now than he was in the Olympics, where he couldn't juice.

YOLO has shitty TDD for his pedigree, knowing he can rely on exploding back to his feet afterwards. I wonder if Kennedy will finally be someone to keep him down long enough to do anything of consequence.

YOLO seems to be hot and cold, even if his record doesn't show it. If I remember right, he was down 20-18 to Brunson before TKO'ing him in the 3rd. Next fight, he faces a better fighter in Brad Tavares and he grinds out an easy unanimous decision.

If he fights Kennedy like the version that fought Brunson, Kennedy walks away with the W.

If the best YOLO version shows up, he walks away with the W.

I'm not sure the fight depends at all on Kennedy, it all depends `who` he faces.

I don;t like Kennedy's play here. Already making excuses. Man up and shut up, focus on you and what you can do.
