It’s being reported by MMAFighting.com that women’s strawweight Cortney Casey’s win over Jessica Aguliar is now being overturned by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation due ‘elevated levels of testosterone’.

This stems from an in-competition test conducted by the state’s athletic commission, which reveals Casey’s testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio was 5.4:1. The limit set by the state of Texas is 4:1.

UFC vice president of health and performance Jeff Novitzsky states that the UFC has yet to contacted by USADA about the potential violation, however, the state of Texas has reportedly suspended her for 3 months.

Casey took the win over Aguliar at UFC 211 via unanimous decision scoring 30-27 on all three judges scorecards. The fight is now reportedly been overturned to a no-contest.
