TJ Dillashaw Relinquishes Bantamweight Title After Failed USADA Drugs Test

UFC Bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw has announced that he will be relinquishing his Bantamweight title as he announces a failed USADA drug test.

The 33-year-old fighter came out on his Instagram with the following statement

“To all my fans, I wanted to be the first one to let you know that Usada and the NYSAC have informed me of an adverse finding in a test taken for my last fight.”

“While words can’t even begin to express how disappointed I am at this time, please know that I’m working with my team to understand what has occurred and how to resolve this situation as quickly as possible. Out of fairness and respect to the rest of my division, I’ve informed the UFC that I’ll be voluntarily relinquishing my title while I deal with this matter. I want to thank all of you in advance for the support.”

The drug test seems to be from his most recent fight, where he fought for the flyweight title against Henry Cejudo, but came up short in what people deemed to be a quick stoppage.
