Brett Okamoto:
“Breaking: TJ Dillashaw has been suspended two years by USADA. Tested positive for EPO prior to Jan. 19 title fight against Henry Cejudo. Dillashaw did not contest the suspension. Two year suspension is the maximum sanction for first offense of a non-specified substance under UFC anti-doping policy. Same sanction Gleison Tibau received for EPO. Olympic athletes receive 4-year suspensions for EPO. Under UFC policy, it’s two years. No comment yet from TJ Dillashaw’s team. Obviously, a devastating blow to his legacy. We’re living in a time where it seems like new information about contamination and “pulsing” surfaces every day, but EPO is a pretty damning thing to test positive for.”
