Default T.J. Dillashaw opens up on failed drug test: ĎItís hard not to hate yourself a little

Former bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw admitted that ďitís hard not to hate yourself a little bitĒ while discussing his two-year suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency for the first time.

Appearing on Chael Sonnenís Youíre Welcome podcast, Dillashaw claimed that it had been hard to show his face in public while cornering his teammate Juan Archuleta for his Bellator 222 bout on the back of his failed test and subsequently vacating his UFC title.

ďItís been the darkest time of my life and itís been the best,Ē Dillashaw told Sonnen. ďLike I said, I have a 17-month old son and thatís been a great distraction for me. Thank goodness for him, you know, because itís been tough for me, man. Itís been tough for me to be downstairs with Juan and show my face. Itís been a tough go.Ē

ďYeah of course [it was difficult to show up to the Bellator 222 press conference]. I mean, Iíve hidden out. I havenít done any interviews, I havenít doneÖIíve just kind of hidden away from it. There have been things Iíve wanted to say, but I didnít because it didnít want to create excuses.Ē

Dillashaw admitted that he cheated and claimed that his cut down to flyweight to face Henry Cejudo forced the decision to take an illegal substance as his body began to shut down six weeks out from the January title fight.

ďFirst and foremost, I cheated. I donít want to runaround that ó thatís why I announced it even when USADA was coming out. I didnít want to create any excuses, I was like, ĎLook, this was it.í I did it, I want to be up front with you guys. I didnít want to create any excuses about why I did it. I knew eventually I would talk about it and this is now, this is the first time I have,Ē Dillashaw said.

ďI was so into doing something that was never done before. Not the two champs, obviously I wanted that more than anything, I wanted to prove I was the best in the world, but it was also to drop down to that weight class. Iím a lean 135er. I wanted to drop the weight class to go to the 125ís, and I played it off on how easy it was going to be. ĎI can do this, no problem, I always cut weight.í I pushed my body to the extreme. About six weeks out, my body started to crash it started to get tired. I started feeling like I didnít wanna wake up for practice.Ē

After he discovered that his hematocrit level was down óthe ratio of the volume of red blood cells to the total volume of bloodó he decided to take a substance called Procrit, which he knew was banned.

ďI test everything; I test my hair for toxins, I test my saliva for my hormone levels. I want to be the most ultimate athlete I can and I started crashing. I tested my hematocrit and I was down in the 30ís, which I normally walk around with around 45. I was down in the 30ís, the high 30ís, but I was on the verge of being anemic,Ē he explained.

ďI decided to take something I wasnít allowed to take. It was called Procrit, itís an anemia medication that would not only help me make the weight, but would also allow me to be myself. Iím not mad I did it because I donít think I couldíve taken the fight. Iím obviously going to own up that I cheated and I got caught.Ē

Dillashaw maintained that it was hard to deal with the dip in public opinion he received on the back of the failed test.

ďItís a rough one, man,Ē Dillashaw said. ďItís hard not to hate yourself a little a bit, you knowÖitís a tough one.Ē

At least he was a man about it and admitted to his mistake. I doubt we'll ever hear that out of Jon Jones until maybe he's well past his prime and he's a shell of his old self.

Any boxer ever get a chant from the crowd like TJ got tonight? If Big Baby showed up to the GGG vs Rolls fight would boxing fans be chanting "EPO" to him I wonder?

His admittance made him look like it was his first time to use banned substance just for cejudos fight but Cody accused him that he was doping for a long time.

I though exactly the same thing reading the article.

Cody was essentially robbed of his belt and I dont even like him.

That's how most people are when they get caught.
