Cody Garbrandt Says T.J. Dillashaw 'Is on Everything' and 'Showed' Team Alpha Male How to Do PEDs

The beef ahead of their UFC 217 bantamweight title fight has reached a new intensity.

Current UFC bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt and former champ T.J. Dillashaw were once teammates on Team Alpha Male, but you'd never be able to tell by their beef ahead of UFC 217. Their exchanges have become increasingly heated, and at the pre-fight press conference on Thursday, Garbrandt didn't hold back in the least.

When asked about the recent accusations of performance-enhancing drug use against Dillashaw (2:19 in the video above), Garbrandt stoked the fire, claiming that Dillashaw "is on everything".

"Yeah, I'm on everything. They test me every day, so I'm on everything," Dillashaw sarcastically replied. And that's when Garbrandt made a somewhat confusing allegation that, if true, would also make TAM look bad.

"You're the one that showed everyone how to do it on Team Alpha Male," Garbrandt said. The exchange pretty much ended there, but Dillashaw took to Twitter to hit back at Garbrandt and highlight the confusing nature of the statement:


Garbrandt has also accused Dillashaw of cheap-shotting other fighters at the gym when he was part of TAM, which Dillashaw denies.

In an Instagram post, Garbrandt claimed that Dillashaw lied about cheap-shotting teammates, PEDs, and about never having been knocked out by Garbrandt. The video allegedly shows him knocking Dillashaw out, although neither of the fighters is clearly identifiable: 


The beef between Dillashaw and Garbrandt is especially intense, since Dillashaw's breakup with TAM wasn't exactly amicable. With Garbrandt hoping to defend the bantamweight title, Dillashaw hoping to win it back, and a ton of hype surrounding the fight, fans are in for an entertaining bout.

And that's not the only title fight going down at UFC 217. Current middleweight champ Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre will duke it out for the title, and strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk will try to defend her title against Rose Namajunas.

Catch UFC 217 on Saturday, November 4 at 10 p.m. ET.
