Paulo Costa is set for a blockbuster middleweight clash against Yoel Romero, and looks to be in great shape with just over a month to go.
The two 185-pounders meet at UFC 241 on August 17 in what promises to be a barnburner of a contest. Given the physiques of both fighters, allegations have come both their ways of using performance enhancing drugs.
Both have, in fact, tested positive and were suspended for banned substances, but not in the way that you’d think. Romero ingested a tainted supplement and would later successfully sue the supplement company. As for Costa, he was suspended as well, but for receiving prohibited IV infusions for stomach medication.

Perhaps it really is just a case of superior genetics.
