TJ Dillashaw returned to action in the headliner of tonight’s UFC Vegas 32 event for a bantamweight showdown with Cory Sandhagen.

Dillashaw (17-4 MMA), the UFC’s former bantamweight champion, was returning to the Octagon for the first time since suffering a knockout loss to Henry Cejudo in January of 2019. Shortly after falling short in his bid to capture the promotions flyweight title, it was revealed that ‘Killashaw’ had tested positive for EPO and he was handed a two-year suspension.

Meanwhile, Cory Sandhagen (14-3 MMA) had entered tonight’s UFC Vegas 32 main event clash with TJ Dillashaw riding a two-fight winning streak. In his most previous effort back in February, Sandhagen scored a first round knockout victory over Frankie Edgar.
