    You had to figure it wouldn’t take long after Tuesday’s announcement of T.J. Dillashaw’s U.S. Anti-Doping Agency suspension for Cody Garbrandt to chime in on things.

    Former UFC bantamweight champion Dillashaw accepted a two-year suspension after testing positive for recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) in an in-competition testing sample leading up to his failed attempt to wrest the UFC flyweight belt from Henry Cejudo at UFC Brooklyn in January.

    Garbrandt lost his UFC bantamweight title to Dillashaw at UFC 217 via second-round knockout, then dropped a first-round knockout to his former teammate in a rematch at UFC 227.

    And indeed, Garbrandt had an opinion on his former Team Alpha Male teammate with a blistering Instagram post, with a little side-eye thrown at Pedro Munhoz, too.

    Munhoz, who knocked out Garbrandt for his third consecutive loss at UFC 235, has a PED suspension on his record from a 2014 fight with Jerrod Sanders.

    So “No Love” wasted no time pointing out that all three of his career losses came against opponents who have run afoul of the sport’s regulators.

    "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."

    After getting a bit of slack online, Garbrandt added a disclaimer he had a hand on his own losses, too.

    "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."

    I like the second quote. Showed some humility. He has a right to be pissed though.

    Cody has a point here. His recent fights don't look as grim now with TJ popping for EPO.

    Great post by Cody. He was right all along about TJ.

    ‘I also fought like a dumbass’

    I’ve always supported Cody over TJ before this anyway. Hoping he can get back on track now!

    At least he qualified his statements by accepting responsibility for fighting like a dumbass and getting into fire fights.

    But I’d be pissed too if guys who beat me pissed hot.

    I know people don't like Cody but he seems like a cool guy despite not being the smartest.

    Congratulated TJ on having a kid
    Shook Dom's hand and gave him props after the fight
    How he's acted with Maddux

    Fans should cut him some slack, he's exciting too

    Tj was seconds from being finished prior to that possibly saved due to the extra red blood cells

    Admitting he fought like a dumbass is the smartest thing he’s done in a long time. He may make a comeback to the top of the division after all.

    Whatever makes you sleep at night, Cody. You still got KOTFO in 3 of your last 3 fights, mate. He'll never win without a bit of humility

    Watching TJ stumble to his stool at the end of the round was absolute comedic gold. Absolutely no clue what was going on.

    Poll is unclear.

    Do I think TJ used PED's for that fight? Or do I think that's the reason he won?

    I hope the bum loses all his sponsors. And he needs to quit crying about the Cruz loss because he was probably using for that fight too. Only way I’ll ever root for him again is if he does a major mea culpa and doesn’t just try and act like it never happened. I’ve always maintained that DJ beats him easy at FLW but I’m glad he never got the chance to cheat DJ out of the belt.

    If Cody gets lucky USADA could find EPO in the samples from their fights. And if they’re positive they would become NC, right? I know they freeze that stuff for years now. And a story I read said EPO is not always tested for.

    Any fighter that’s lost a fight to a juiced fighter has a right to be pissed off.
