Former bantamweight champ returns to the UFC

TJ Dillashaw returns to the Octagon this weekend in the UFC’s Fight Night main event. He faces off against top contender Cory Sandhagen.

The former bantamweight champion was suspended by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for two years in 2019 after testing positive for EPO.

Dillashaw tested positive after his flyweight title fight against Henry Cejudo in January 2019, which he ultimately lost.

The suspension ended on January 2021 meaning TJ is eligible to fight in the UFC once more.
