The churned martial humanities (MMA) universe was jarred to a core when news came that former UFC champion TJ Dillashaw had been dangling for dual years for regulating EPO.
Overall it was a intolerable tumble from beauty for a warrior who usually 3 months ago was looking to turn a latest champ champ. He mislaid to Henry Cejudo in 32 seconds and unsuccessful a drug exam in and with a fight. Not surprisingly, his longtime opposition Cody Garbrandt was nothing too happy about what went down. ‘No Love’ went off on a situation in an epic Twitter diatribe progressing this evening.
Another high-profile warrior who has bloody Dillashaw before rushed to his side. Fellow former UFC champ Conor McGregor offering his support for Garbrandt on Twitter:
“Respect Cody! The faithfulness we showed for Urijah and your group on that true day in a TUF gym will perpetually mount out to me! Enjoy this impulse and these returned victories to you! Clean and Unbeaten!”
History With Conor McGregor
McGregor infamously called Dillashaw a ‘snake’ while he was coaching conflicting Team Alpha Male’s Urijah Faber on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). Dillashaw was afterwards a member of Faber’s group and done an coming on a show.
‘The Notorious’ was proven right when Dillashaw shortly left his longtime group for Colorado. While he was positively within his rights to demeanour out for his career, a nickname and repute stuck. His adversary with Garbrandt stemmed from a sourness between him and TAM. ‘The Viper’ got by distant a best of ‘No Love’ by knocking him out twice when they fought.
Those wins have many really come into doubt today. EPO is a scandalous performance-enhancing piece that is usually administered by injection, not a good demeanour for Dillashaw whatsoever. Garbrandt certified he fought foolishly in his dual waste to Dillashaw and his lapse hitch opposite Pedro Munhoz.
But he’s also right that all of his 3 waste have come to fighters with contemptible PED histories. Is that adequate to cruise his record purify as McGregor says?
