Cortney Casey Fails Drug Test at UFC 211; Win vs. Jessica Aguilar Overturned

By Tristen Critchfield May 26, 2017


Cortney Casey’s victory over Jessica Aguilar at UFC 211 was overturned after testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone in an in-competition drug screening.

As a result, Casey’s unanimous decision triumph over Aguilar has been changed to a no contest, according to the mixedmartialarts.com database. MMAFighting.com was first to report the news of Casey’s positive test and also confirmed that the 30-year-old strawweight has been suspended for three months. Casey is also likely to face a $2,000 fine.

According to Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation records, Casey was flagged for a testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio of 5.4:1. The allowable limit in Texas is 4:1, the same as the World Anti-Doping Agency threshold. According to the MMAFighting.com report, Casey did not disclose taking a banned substance.

Casey swept the scorecards in taking a three-round verdict over Aguilar, the former World Series of Fighting strawweight queen. With the victory now being overturned, “Cast Iron” owns a 2-3 record in UFC competition. UFC 211 took place at American Airlines Arena in Dallas on May 13.
