Cody Garbrandt wants to see all of T.J. Dillashaw’s sins laid to bare.
After the United States Anti-Doping Agency announced Tuesday that Dillashaw had been handed a two-year suspension for a failed drug test tied to his bout with Henry Cejudo at UFC Brooklyn in January, it didn’t take long for “No Love” to comment on the news and request that Dillashaw’s past samples be further examined:
Test all his samples I bet for a fact more epo pops up, @TJDillashaw is a coward. Tj call me when that suspension is up! Scum bag https://t.co/LIjynev9VT— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) April 9, 2019
Responding to a report from ESPN stating that one of Dillashaw’s previous test samples came back positive for EPO in addition to the Jan. 18 sample that was flagged for recombinant human erythropoietin, Garbrandt called Dillashaw a “coward” and a “scum bag” and added a challenge to his rival to “call me when that suspension is up!”
Garbrandt and Dillashaw have fought twice, with Dillashaw defeating Garbrandt by second-round TKO at UFC 217 to claim Garbrandt’s bantamweight title, and then defending that title in their rematch at UFC 227, that time by first-round TKO. A former teammate of Dillashaw’s at Team Alpha Male, Garbrandt has previously accused Dillashaw of using banned substances, specifically naming EPO last April in a since-deleted tweet.
All of my losses are from Fighters that have popped for PEDs @ufc @usantidoping I can stand behind this when I say I’ll always be a drug free athlete, #1 reason is the believe I have in myself. #2 I respect the game Twitter rant over y’all have a good day ❤️— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) April 9, 2019
Let’s make this clear I’m not saying my losses are a direct result of PED convicted fighters. I also fought like a dumb ass— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) April 9, 2019
Anyways I’ll be back at the end of the year.— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) April 9, 2019
Garbrandt also wrote that he believes Dillashaw’s longtime coach Duane Ludwig is involved.
Can’t wait to see who he blames for sticking the needles In him lol where’s bang at https://t.co/zPtcwtHLzK— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) April 9, 2019
Oh for sure Duane is crying that was his life’s work invested into him but Duane knew he was on the juice to. What a leader he is! https://t.co/CT4iE3r2aT— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) April 9, 2019
As a result of his suspension, Dillashaw will not be eligible to compete again until January 2021.
