Needs clearance to rule out fracture
FlyweightUFC
March 16, 2021
Casey is facing a potential six-month medical suspension unless she is able to get clearance from a doctor, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Casey is coming off a split decision loss to JJ Aldrich last Saturday in Las Vegas. She will need clearance from an orthopedic doctor to rule out a potential right foot and right hand fracture or will not be able to fight again until Sept. 10. Casey is 2-5 in her last seven bouts.
Drops questionable judges decision
FlyweightUFC
March 13, 2021
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.

Casey will face JJ Aldrich (hand) in a flyweight match at the UFC's event on March 13, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Casey most recently had her fight against Priscila Cachoeira cancelled last October, but she's now locked in for a return. Aldrich is coming off a 180-day injury suspension due to a hand fracture, but she's presumably now back to full health.
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.
