Upcoming fight canceled
FlyweightUFC
October 30, 2020
Casey will no longer be facing Priscila Cachoeira on Saturday after Cachoeira was forced to withdraw with a head injury, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira had been battling multiple illnesses in recent months, though what wound up cancelling the fight was the head injury she suffered after slipping and hitting her head on a bathtub during her weight cut. She's expected to be fine but is in a Las Vegas hospital for observation. With the withdrawal coming just a day before the fight, it's far too late for Casey to find a new opponent and remain on the card.
October 31 bout booked

August 19, 2020
Casey will face Priscila Cachoeira at the UFC event on October 31, Raphael Marinho of Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
Casey will be making her first appearance since getting submitted in late June to Gillian Robertson. There is no fight location for the Halloween flyweight bout at this time.
Facing potential medical ban
FlyweightUFC
June 23, 2020
The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed Casey a six-month medical suspension Tuesday after she sustained injuries to her right hand and wrist over the weekend in her submission loss to Gillian Robertson at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Casey will soon undergo an X-ray on the hand/wrist, and if the results return positive, the six-month ban will go into effect. While the suspension would prevent Casey from stepping foot in the Octogon until Dec. 18, she could fight again before that date if a orthopedic or sports medicine doctor fully clears her. Casey's loss to Robertson was the eighth overall of her fighting career, dropping her overall record to 5-7 since she joined the UFC in July 2015.
Not competitive in Vegas
FlyweightUFC
June 20, 2020
Casey lost to Gillian Robertson via submission (Rear-naked choke) at 4:32 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Casey has been plenty active since her company debut back in July 2015 and this was by far her worst effort since joining the UFC roster. Fighting for the second time in a little over a month, Casey had absolutely no answer for the grappling game of Robertson. She spent virtually the entire bout being controlled on the mat and managed no significant offense of her own. Casey is better than her 5-7 record with the UFC would lead you to believe but she has a clear hole in her game and Robertson exploited it here. Casey has alternated wins and losses in her past five fights.
Scheduled for June 20 bout
FlyweightUFC
May 22, 2020
Casey is set to face off against Gillian Robertson in a flyweight matchup at a yet-to-be-determined location June 20, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While Casey's flyweight debut looked shaky early on, she managed to secure a victory via submission (armbar) 3:36 into the first round of the bout. She'll get her second taste of the division versus Robertson, who enters the bout coming off of a loss via KO/TKO (punches) versus Maycee Barber back in October. Casey sports a punching volume more than twice that of Robertson, who will likely look to take it to the mat. In terms of betting odds, Casey was listed as a (+110) betting underdog shortly after the announcement of this clash.
