Jessica Eye Disputes Reports She Failed Drug Test, Says UFC 170 Fight Still On

UFC female bantamweight Jessica Eye is disputing reports that she failed a drug test following her fight with Sarah Kaufman last year.

Eye originally was awarded a decision victory over Kaufman, but the commission in Texas changed it to a no-contest last week.

Early reports Monday stated that Eye was fined and suspended, meaning she would not be allowed to compete later this month.

The UFC has yet to issue any official word regarding the matter. Stay tuned for more updates. Eye is scheduled to meet Alexis Davis in the main prelim bout on FOX Sports 1 for UFC 170.

Eye herself updated the situation on Twitter, posting, “Business as usual training tonight with the team. Can’t wait to see them as always they always make me smile. UFC 170 is still going down.”

For what it’s worth, Davis also seems confident that the fight will go down, posting on her own social media account.
