A New Jersey state court entered a $27.65 million judgment for UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero following a damages trial involving a tainted training supplement that led to a suspension and lost professional opportunities, his legal team said today. Entered by the Hon. Carlia M. Brady, the judgment against Goldstar Performance Products, a New Jersey corporation, includes lost wages/contract losses, damage to reputation, and emotional distress claims. The lawsuit accused the supplement maker of negligence, strict products liability, breach of implied warranties, intentional misrepresentation, and a violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. Mr. Romero is represented by attorneys Jeffrey S Craig, of Craig, Annin & Baxter, LLP, of Woodbury, N.J.; Howard L. Jacobs, of the Law Offices of Howard L. Jacobs, of Westlake Village, Calif.; and R. Daniel Fleck of The Spence Law Firm, LLC, of Jackson, Wyo. A former Olympic wrestling silver medalist and native of Cuba, Mr. Romero failed a drug test in 2015, but the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) later determined that the Goldstar Performance Products dietary supplement he took – “Shed Rx” – was tainted with ibutamoren, a simulated growth hormone. The banned drug was not on the warning label.
