Ronda Rousey vs. Sarah Kaufman - StrikeforceAfter a false start a little over a week ago when the California State Athletic Commission deemed the Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman drug test results invalid, then quickly reversed is position, the test results are finally in for the event that took place on Aug. 18 in San Diego.

The only two fighters on the card that were drug tested, according to CSAC Interim Executive Officer Kathi Burns, were main eventers Ronda Rousey and Sarah Kaufman. Both returned negative, or clean, results, Burns told MMAWeekly.com on Thursday.

Rousey, the Strikeforce bantamweight champion, submitted Kaufman via armbar inside the opening minute of the fight. The victory kept her unbeaten and armbar streak intact. Rousey has won all six of her professional bouts, and three amateur bouts, via armbar and all in the opening round of each fight.

Burns said that the initial confusion over the test results was due to “a simple, but correctable clerical error.”
