We had wrote last Monday that UFC women’s bantamweight fighter Jessica Eye had received a one year “probate suspension” from The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for testing positive for a “prohibited drug”. Eye was fined $1,875 and still allowed to fight Alexis Davis next week at UFC 170.
BloodyElbow.com broke the story on Saturday that the prohibited drug that Eye tested positive for was marijuana. Eye had been taunting reporters regarding this story.
Eye yesterday appeared on a podcast on MMAFighting.com and was asked by reporter Ariel Helwani asked Eye at around the one hour eleven minute mark, “So, let’s figure this out. When did you find out that the Texas Commission had an issue with you stemming from your fight at UFC 166? How did they notify you of this?”
Eye said to Helwani, “Well, they didn’t notify me. I found out the same way you guys did, so I had no idea until that Saturday afternoon.”
Fox Sports.com then confirmed with the TDLR that Eye did test positive for marijuana and found out about the positive test on November 26, a little bit over a full month after her split decision win over Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166.
Eye signed the letter stating her suspension and what it constitutes on January 15.
