Recently it was reported that Jessica Eye’s split decision win over Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 had been overturned to a no decision, and now it’s been revealed the change was apparently due to Eye failing her post-fight drug test.

According to multiple reports, the  Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has confirmed that Eye allegedly tested positive for a prohibited drug following the October 19th card. Eye has been fined $1,875 and issued a one year, “probated suspension”, which means that the bantamweight can continue to fight as long as the conditions of her probation are met.

Eye (10-1 1 NC) is scheduled to fight Alexis Davis at UFC 170 on February 22nd. In response to the Texas commission’s ruling, the 27 year-old fighter tweeted Monday:

UFC 170 will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
