UFC on ESPN 27 medical suspensions: T.J. Dillashaw faces 180-day term

·5 min read

Former two-time bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw is looking at more time on the shelf after UFC on ESPN 27.

Dillashaw (17-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC), who returned from a two-year U.S. Anti-Doping Agency suspension that stemmed from a positive drug test for EPO, revealed he suffered a displaced bucket handle tear of his lateral meniscus and a lateral collateral ligament in his hard-fought split decision win over Cory Sandhagen on Saturday and is expected to undergo surgery.

Also facing a 180-day term is Adrian Yanez (14-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC), who remained unbeaten in the UFC when he scored a come-from-behind TKO of fellow prospect Randy Costa to earn a “Performance of the Night” bonus. Yanez needs an X-ray on his nose or he could be forced on the sidelines until next year.
