TJ Dillashaw’s recent issues with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) have really taken the mixed martial arts (MMA) world by surprise.
It was announced earlier today (Tues. April 9, 2019) that Dillashaw has received a two-year suspension from the anti-doping agency. The suspension was first reported by ESPN. Dillashaw tested positive for recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO) prior to his flyweight title fight against Henry Cejudo in January. “The Viper” lost that fight via controversial first-round TKO.
Interestingly, Dillashaw didn’t contest the suspension, and will sit out the full two years before being eligible to return. Check out how the MMA community reacted to the news on Twitter here:
