As first reported by MMAFighting.com, Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey’s win over Jessica Aguilar at UFC 211 has been overturned due to a failed drug test.
Earlier this month, Casey defeated Aguilar via unanimous decision in what many considered Casey’s best performance to date. That win has now been overturned to a no-contest. Casey reportedly tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone returned from an “in-competition drug screen at UFC 211 on May 13th in Dallas.”
The drug test results reportedly read that Casey’s testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio was 5.4:1–anything over 4:1 is automatically flagged in Texas.
However, these results do not mean that Casey was taking any prohibited supplements. A further test must be conducted to tell if these elevated levels were caused by consumption of an illegal substance.
It is important to note, these results, as of now, have not been recognized or submitted by USADA to the UFC, per UFC’s vice-president of health and performance. These results instead come from the ABC (Association of Boxing Commision and Combative Sports), and have already been reflected on Casey’s official record. Also, according to the ABC public database, Casey will serve a three-month suspension.
Casey’s record now stands at 6-4, 1 NC.
