    T.J. Dillashaw will not be stepping into the Octagon as a competitor for a while. The former bantamweight champion was flagged recently for an errant drug test and willingly gave up his belt at the time. Now, he’s been suspended for two years by USADA for EPO (recombinant human erythropoietin) use.

    ESPN reported the news, and included a statement from UFC anti-drug czar Jeff Novitzky:

    “I’m quite familiar with EPO from my days investigating professional cycling teams. It’s a very effective substance. It’s not a substance you find in contaminated supplements, it’s injectable only. You have to know what you’re doing when it enters your system.

    ”On a scale of seriousness in anti-doping, it’s up near the top.”

    USADA statement. Looks like Dillashaw is not contesting it at all.

    This breaks my heart. I really wanted him to be one of the clean ones. I was hoping that this violation would have been related to taking a diuretic for the weight cut, but EPO is straight-up cheating to gain an edge.

    I dishespect.

    ew, that man is awful^

    lol @ naughty snake. I just heard EPO can only be ingested by injection! you don't contest rulings if you literally stuck a needle in your butt and everyone now knows, without any possible doubt. pwned.

    I remember leading up to their first fight that Cody was telling tales of TJ pushing that shit in the locker room. Sounds like a bunch of people knew about it.

    Ben Rothwell mentioned the rampant use of EPO a few years ago around 2013 ...

    Think many suspected DillaTits Was on something.

    This is where the biological passport comes in. If the athletes blood profile over a period of time has no indication whatsoever of epo use, then its debatable if its worth testing their samples for epo. Conversely, if their bio passport looks suspicious.. boom..

    its doubtful the sample was even at the lab by the 19th

    USADA would have had a hotel room booked at the event and samples would have been in secure refrigeration until they completed their mission sunday morning. then all shipped together to the lab sunday/monday

    Chael was all EPO when he had his run of "great cardio/pace"

    I have my suspicions about a few more of the top guys that fell off.

    maybe they know it is rarely tested for, so they just play the game.

    @Dim@Dim do you know how often MMA fighters are being tested for EPO?
