TJ Dillashaw Flagged By USADA, Voluntarily Relinquishes Title

UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw has announced that he will be voluntarily relinquishing his title following an adverse test finding from USADA.

The 33-year-old was defeated in quick fashion by Cejudo as he looked to add the flyweight title to his 135lb belt.
