All athletes tested for steroid and drug use at the Dec. 3 season finale of “The Ultimate Fighter 14,” including main-eventers Michael Bisping and Jason Miller, returned cleaned results, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer stated Monday that 18 tested fighters passed their drug screens. In addition to Bisping and Miller, the list included “TUF 14” bantamweight finalists John Dodson and T.J. Dillashaw, featherweight finalists Diego Brandao and Dennis Bermudez, John Albert, Stephen Bass, Johnny Bedford, Marcus Brimage, Bryan Caraway, Josh Clopton, Roland Delorme, Josh Ferguson, Tony Ferguson, Dustin Neace, Dustin Pague and Steven Siler.

The two competitors who appeared on the Dec. 3 card at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and were not present on the NSAC list were lightweight veteran Yves Edwards and “TUF 14” bantamweight Louis Gaudinot.

Bisping and Miller, who served as coaches on the reality series’ final season on Spike TV, met in the evening’s main event, with Bisping emerging victorious via third-round stoppage. Team Miller’s Dodson captured the six-figure UFC contract in the bantamweight division by punching out Dillashaw, while Team Bisping’s Brando won the featherweight bracket with his armbar submission of Bermudez.
