The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (hereafter, just the Texas commission) gave Cortney Casey a raw deal when they prematurely suspended her and made a public announcement that she had failed a drug test – mostly because it turns out she didn’t actually fail that drug test.
Then they dragged their heels when it came to lifting her suspension, which is unconscionable.
Thankfully, according to MMAFighting, the Texas commission has finally made amends.
Sanctions imposed on a UFC fighter in a controversial doping case have been reversed.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) lifted a three-month suspension on Cortney Casey on Friday, per a letter sent to Casey obtained by MMA Fighting. Casey’s victory against Jessica Aguilar at UFC 211 has also been given back to her after it was overturned to a no contest.
Sources confirmed with MMA Fighting that Casey’s suspension was lifted on the internal Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports (ABC) database. However, the database still has a no contest next to the record of her fight against Aguilar.
