Casey defeated Liana Jojua via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's been a great past 36 hours for Casey, as she picked up an easy unanimous decision victory in addition to pocketing a portion of Jojua's purse after the latter missed weight by three pounds Friday morning. Virtually all of Jojua's offense comes on the mat, so it came as no surprise that Casey went about attempting to overwhelm her with volume on the feet. It worked. Cortney attempted 257 total strikes, landing 124 of them. On the flip side, Jojua landed just 57-of-184 tries. Casey entered this fight with an ugly 5-8 mark in the UFC, but she's performed better than that record would indicate, and she never turns down a fight. It was nice to see her put together a strong performance in this one.

Casey is facing a potential six-month medical suspension unless she is able to get clearance from a doctor, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS

Casey lost to JJ Aldrich via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Casey may have very well deserved a better fate. The first two rounds were clear cut, with Casey winning Round 1 and Aldrich taking Round 2. Casey was the much more active fighter on the feet. She threw (202-99) and landed (121-58) more than twice as many total strikes as Aldrich. Unfortunately Casey also allowed four takedowns on seven attempts. Casey has been with the UFC for nearly six years. She's almost always competitive, but you are what your record says you are in this sport and Casey's record says she is 2-5 in her past seven bouts dating back to December 2017. The soon-to-be 34-year-old has value because she has always been willing to fight anyone at any time, but the upside here is non existent.
