TJ Dillashaw (16-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) is one of the most popular fighters in the MMA world. He tested positive for EPO back in January 2019 after he struggled to make the flyweight mark for his title fight loss against then-champion Henry Cejudo. He was then suspended for two years by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and beat Cory Sandhagen on Saturday at UFC on ESPN 27. TJ Dillashaw was also banned from a major UFC show.
Dana White is the President of the UFC and is certainly a controversial figure in the world of MMA. Dana White was also recently accused of an ‘illegal crime’ in Las Vegas.
T.J. Dillashaw recently spoke to Submission Radio’s Kacper Rosolowski and Denis Shkuratov, where he talked about Aljamain Sterling winning the UFC bantamweight championship against Petr Yan.
“That was an illegal knee. It’s so hard to accept the belt that way. It’s so hard to be the champion. Maybe I can accept if it wasn’t a title fight, yeah you get the win. But to say you’re a champion off a disqualification is just crazy. I do say that Yan deserved to lose the fight because he did something blatantly illegal. But I wouldn’t that in my mind Sterling is the champion,” admitted T.J. Dillashaw.
