Cortney Casey Fails Drug Test, Win Over Aguilar Overturned

Cortney Casey Fails Drug Test, Win Over Aguilar Overturned

Cortney Casey looked great dominating former Bellator champ Jessica Aguilar en route to a unanimous decision victory at UFC 211. Too bad she had elevated testosterone levels while doing it.

Her win – which was the most impressive of her career – is now a “no contest”. Here’s MMAFighting with the scoop:

A dominant win for Cortney Casey is now no longer a victory in the official record books.

The UFC strawweight fighter tested positive for an elevated testosterone ratio in an in-competition drug screen at UFC 211 on May 13 in Dallas, per drug-test results obtained by MMA Fighting on Friday via an open records request with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).

Casey’s unanimous decision win over Jessica Aguilar has been overturned to a no-contest by the TDLR due to the failure. The change is already reflected on mixedmartialarts.com, the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports’ (ABC) official record keeper.

Sources also confirmed that Casey is currently under suspension for three months on the ABC database, the typical suspension for a failed drug test in Texas. The standard fine in such a situation in Texas is $2,000.
