Jessica Eye’s UFC 166 Victory Overturned Due to Positive Drug Test
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.03.2014



According to mmajunkie.com, Jessica Eye's split decision win over Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 in Houston being changed to a no-decision. This news comes from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. It was revealed January 22nd that Eye "tested positive for a prohibited drug," and was fined $1,875 and placed on a "one year fully probated suspension."

Susan Stanford of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has stated that Eye is effectively "on probation as long as she complies" with the administrative order, and can still fight in the interim. Eye says she will dispute the findings, insisting she is "not suspended at all" and will still fight Alexis Davis (15-5 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC 170 on February 22nd.

Sarah Kaufman offered the following comments on the situation…

"It's not a loss but also not a win. I hate to see our sport marred by athletes who can't seem to control what substances they put in their bodies. It's disrespectful to their opponents and employers."
