UFC middleweight title challenger from Cuba, Yoel Romero has won a ₹192 Crore lawsuit against a supplementary company called Gold Star Performance Products according to his manager, Abe Kawa.

The news was first reported by ESPN. Back in 2016, Romero failed a drug test by USADA and tested positive for Ibutamoren, which is a growth hormone stimulate. The Cuban, however, denied having taken the stimulate knowingly and alleged that the test came back positive via a tainted supplement.

However, later USADA tested the supplement and it was indeed true that the supplements were tainted. Because of this USADA only banned him for six months.

Meanwhile, Romero didn’t let this incident slide. He sued the supplement maker Gold Star Performance back in 2017, in Middlesex (N.J.) County civil court. The company never responded and as a result, the Romero won the case by default in court.

I’m very happy,” Romero told ESPN. “It’s not about the money. I’m very happy now that everything is clean and more clear. You cannot live very well when you hear and you see when you post something [on social media] people reply ‘Soldier of Steroids.’ You cannot sleep very well. … It’s very emotional and important, too, because I know I’ve never taken anything in my life.” (H/T- MMAFighting.com)

The breakdown of ₹192 Crore is  ₹21 Crore for “lost wages,” ₹21 crore for “reputable harm,” and ₹21 Crore for “emotional damage,” with the total being multiplied by three based on the state of New Jersey’s “Consumer Fraud Act.”
