Jessica Eye fails drug test, win becomes NC, fined $1,875, can still fight

Monday, February 03, 2014

UFC women's bantamweight fighter Jessica Eye has failed a drug screen administered by the Texas athletic commission for UFC 166 in October. Eye has been fined $1,875, her split decision win over Sarah Kaufman was turned to a No Contest, and she is subject to an administrative suspension that ensures she pays the fine. However, contrary to published reports, Eye's suspension does not prohibit her from fighting Alexis Davis on the undercard of UFC 170 on Feb. 22.

An open records request has been filed  through the appropriate channels at the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Further details will be provided as they become available.

In an unrelated matter, a $10,000 fundraiser is underway for Eye's father, who is battling brain cancer.
