Aftermath[edit] On May 26, it was announced that Casey tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone in an in-competition drug screen on May 13. Per the drug-test results, her testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio was 5.4:1, above the 4:1 limit. Casey was suspended for three months and her win over Aguilar was overturned to a no-contest by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) due to the failure.[20] Nearly a month later, Jeff Novitzky, the UFC's VP of athlete health and performance revealed that Casey's "B" sample came back negative for banned substances and synthetic testosterone, therefore clearing her of wrongdoing both by a WADA-accredited lab and a testing laboratory hired by the TDLR. Yet Casey's case remains "still under review" by the TDLR. Novitzky urged the TDLR to reverse its decision and cautioned the promotion could steer away future UFC
UFC
events from Texas if the issue isn’t resolved.[21] On June 30, the TDLR lifted Casey's three-month suspension and gave back her victory, which was overturned to a no contest.[22] See also[edit]
