The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation had announced on Saturday that October’s UFC 166 women’s bantamweight bout between Jessica Eye and Sarah Kaufman was overturned from an Eye split decision victory to a no-contest. No one knew why the fight overturned when the announcement was made.
TLDR announced earlier that the reason the fight was overturned was due to Eye testing positive for a “prohibited drug” and was fined $1,875 and placed on a “one year fully probated suspension.” The suspension means that Eye is on probation as long as she complies with the administrative order and can still fight in the interim. Eye next competes in the cage at UFC 170 on Saturday, February 22 against Alexis Davis.
Eye has vehemently denied what the TLDR has said she did.
I PROMISE YOU I AM NOT SUSPEND and WILL BE FIGHTING FEB 22 as scheduled !! @UFC don't believe everything you read online !
