T.J. Dillashaw is no longer the UFC bantamweight champion.

As reported earlier today, Dillashaw announced on social media Wednesday that he was voluntarily relinquishing the UFC’s 135-pound championship after being notified of a failure of a USADA drug test stemming from his January flyweight title defeat to champion Henry Cejudo.

It means that just weeks after aiming to add a second UFC world title to his collection, Dillashaw is now left without a title belt and has been issued with a one-year ban dated retroactively to his January 19 loss to Cejudo.

As you might expect, the reaction to this bombshell news has begun to dominate the MMA social media circles and below are some of the early opinions to filter out of what is a still developing situation.
