Cody Garbrandt, Henry Cejudo Speaks Out On TJ Dillashaw Drug Test

TJ Dillashaw’s Former Rivals Said A Word About His Recent Drug Test Controversy

Earlier today TJ Dillashaw took to social media and revealed that he failed an in-competition drug test for his UFC On ESPN+ 1 fight with UFC flyweight Henry Cejudo back in January. According to U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s new policy, they wouldn’t announce the violations committed by fighters until they’re resolved. The reason Dillashaw decided to surrender his UFC bantamweight title due to an unfortunate situation.

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani shortly after reported that New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) suspended Dillashaw for one year.

Dillashaw’s formal rival Henry Cejudo spoke to Ariel Helwani earlier where he talked about TJ’s recent drug test finding, and Cejudo is clearly disappointed.

“I feel bad for him,” Henry Cejudo began. “Obviously, you have your exceptions out there. Some people have been wrongly accused in the past. But people like Lance Armstrong and Marion Jones, and I’ve looked up to her in the past, they have to live with the regret and the dishonesty for the rest of their lives. I honestly feel bad for them.

“I want to reserve judgment, but I also want to say I never wish to […] anyone who uses PEDs again. There’s no place for that in MMA. This isn’t baseball or basketball. This is another human being with four-ounce gloves hitting another human being.”

Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw have an intense dislike for each other. Dillashaw’s dispute with Cody Garbrandt and the rest of Team Alpha Male is well-known. In the past ‘No Love’ accused Dillashaw of using PEDs. Before their title fight at UFC 217, Cody told TJ at Press conference that he “showed everyone how to do it on Team Alpha Male” and that he’s on “everything.”

In the wake of Dillashaw’s recent drug test finding and suspension, Cody issues a simple response.

That emoji means referring to Kermit The Frog is sipping tea saying, ‘None of my business’ so here Cody saying ‘i told you guys before.’ ‘No Love’ suffered two losses in a row from the hands of Dillashaw.

  1. Uhg! Hard to know exactly what to say without knowing what he pissed hot for and respecting the idea of innocent until proven guilty. But honestly, for me, after john fitch was caught I wouldn’t be shocked if it was revealed the easter bunny was injecting PED’s. You just never know. However, call me niave but i also believe current drug testing is making it difficult to cheat these days.
