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.
