We'll be forced to wait a little longer for the return of former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw after the 35-year-old's comeback at UFC Vegas 26 this weekend was canned due to a cut sustained in training.

Dillashaw had been due to make his first Octagon walk since serving a two-year suspension from USADA after testing positive for two banned substances in January 2019.

It means 135lb contender Cory Sandhagen will also have to wait a little longer before getting back among the action as he looks to set the seal on his spot as the division's number one contender.
