    T.J. Dillashaw tested positive for EPO in relation to his flyweight title bout with Henry Cejudo at UFC Fight Night 143, but many fighters suspect the former two-time bantamweight champion has been using performance-enhancing drugs for most of his career.

    In fact, back in 2018, former teammate turned arch rival Cody Garbrandt specifically accused Dillashaw of using EPO, and the Team Alpha Male product has demanded that the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) go back and re-analyze TJ’s previous samples for the same substance.

    According to ‘No Love’, though, USADA can’t re-test the samples because they don’t have enough money.


    I asked for more strict drug testing when I was slated to…


    Cody Garbrandt lays into USADA over T.J. Dillashaw’s drug test: You can’t go back and test ‘frozen piss?’

    Why wasn't EPO included in the previous tests? That's what I'm not understanding. Or was he tested for it and passed?

    I still like martial arts but the past few years have really impacted how much I "look up" to these pro fighters.

    From all the drug failures, criminal shit, Hughes thing....

    Tough time to support mma

    I agree I thought they were supposed to be better than the original people who did the testing for commissions.

    Revisionist history. He passed the tests before the Garbrandt fight. Fake outrage by a guy that just wasnt good enough to win.

    I thought they saved blood tests so they could expose people in the future for something they missed in the past?
    Bunch of bullshitters

    It seems that it varies depending on funding. Not clear cut this testing thing

    i dont even care anymore. dudes who get punched in the head for a living should be allowed to take steroids. i want to see good fights. they are all on steroids anyways so quit playing fucking stupid games and semantics . they top guys are always gaming the system and always will be.the glory days of this sport were built on piles of deca and test. the early pioneers of this sport like shamrock and coleman were juiced to the tits. the legends of the golden era randy,wandy,anderson,vitor etc were all on the gear. that was when MMA was the best. no all of a sudden we want to act like steroids are something shameful ?? every damn fighter in the ufc has a pincushion for an ass and cody is a fucking hypocrite if he is claiming TJ is geared up and the rest of the alpha midgets werent.usada is a straight up fucking joke . they test who they want and what they want . they dont test guys like brock and jones for 2 years at a time and test holly holm 15x a year. the whole thing is fucking ridiculous. lets just scrap usada and go back to the way this sport used to be

    agreed
    I just want a somewhat even playing field and it seems that allowing PEDs is the only way to have that...money, lawyers, and loopholes are King of testing right now

    tired of fighters excuses for getting caught...not into publicly pushed and accepted lies

    Basically can somebody give Shogun the OK to Juice and get his muscle tone back

    They do test for epo...

    if they didnt test for epo how did they catch tj.....

    (and we know from yearly wada reports that they test for epo, all that information is public domain)

    about 8-10% of samples are analysed for epo

    if the athletes bio passport suggests epo use, or a sample is collected very early or late, like 6am or 11pm they analyse it for epo


    they dont analyse if for epo if it was collected after like 10am because it would be pointless. epo detection window is 8 hours max and athletes take it at bedtime, waste of time and resources spending 3 days (thats how long the epo test takes to run) analysing a sample taken at lunchtime thsat will not have epo in it.



    And Cody's talking bollocks anyway, its already been confirmed that TJ's samples were analysed for epo in both fights against him.

    This made me laugh hysterically because at first I thought you meant they all had Tyson Griffen-like donks. Now I get it.
