DILLASHAW SUSPENDED
Posted: 070119

Gave Up his Title When Authorities Caught Him Juicing With a Toxic Brew

Former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw was officially suspended for two years by USADA, which means he canít compete again until January 2021. He was busted for injecting recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO), something not found in supplements. Dillashaw didnít fight the suspension and voluntarily gave up the bantamweight title in January when the New York State Athletic Commission first announced he would be suspended for a year. Both suspensions will run at the same time. The test was taken before his January knockout loss to flyweight champion Henry Cejudo. He's the second fighter in UFC history to get nailed for using for EPO. Gleison Tibau got caught in 2015. UFC VP of athlete health and performance Jeff Novitzky told ESPN that EPO "is a very effective substance. You have to know what you're doing when it enters your system. On a scale of seriousness in anti-doping, it's up near the top." Cejudo says he will never fight Dillashaw again.
