Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen at UFC 148Every fighter on the UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II fight card was drug tested and all 22 fighters returned negative results.

With the focus on drug testing in sports becoming more and more intense, the Nevada Athletic Commission chose to test ever fighter at the UFC 148 event that took place last week at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Chael Sonnen, who challenged UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in the main event, applied for and was granted a therapeutic use exemption for his testosterone replacement therapy regimen, according to the commission’s executive director Keith Kizer.

Silva went on to win the main event, stopping Sonnen with a knee to the chest followed by numerous punches that results in a TKO finish.
