Ex-UFC champ T.J. Dillashaw accepts a 2-year suspension

LOS ANGELES – Former UFC T.J. Dillashaw accepted a two-year doping suspension.

The US anti-doping agency, which administers the UFC drug policy, announced Dillashaw's ban and decision on Tuesday.

USADA states that Dillashaw was positive for recombinant human erythropoietin, a synthetic hormone better known as EPO.

Dillashaw's suspension ends January 18, 2021, exactly two years after the positive champion was picked up during his preparation to challenge Henry Cejudo for the flyweight title. Cejudo stopped Dillashaw in 32 seconds to maintain his 125-pound belt.

The 33-year-old Dillashaw sold his 135-pound belt three weeks ago after announcing he had failed a doping test.

Dillashaw had two positions as the UFC bantamweight champion. He reigned from 2014-16 and again from November 2017 at this year.
