A couple of months after he was suspended for two years from MMA after testing positive for EPO, former UFC bantamweight champion T.J Dillashaw has started a new venture, opening a juice bar (ironically) called “Clean Juice” in Southern California.

The change in career comes for Dillashaw because of the two-year ban from MMA. “Clean Juice” will be opening up at the Yorba Linda Town Center in Orange County. The USDA certified juice bar currently has vacancies for the General Manager, Assistant Manager, and juicerista roles.

Dillashaw (16-4) won’t be eligible to return to MMA until 2021 after testing positive for EPO. He recently opened up about his EPO use, claiming it was a mistake he made whilst trying to cut down to 125-pounds for his title fight with Henry Cejudo in January of this year. The 33-year-old was fighting at flyweight for the first time in his eventual TKO defeat against Cejudo.

Before his loss to Cejudo, Dillashaw went on an impressive four-fight winning streak. Knocking out Cody Garbrandt to win the UFC bantamweight title then knocking him out again to defend it, he also won decisions against John Lineker and Raphael Assuncao before that.
