A week before her title bout for muay Thai promotion Lion Fight, Cristiane Justino has passed a random drug test requested by Nevada’s boxing commission.

“Cyborg,” a former Strikeforce and current Invicta champ, was screened for performance-enhancers and diuretics, Nevada State Athletic Commission chairman Francisco Aguilar confirmed to MMAjunkie.

On Feb. 25, the commission informed the fighter through Lion Fight’s promoter that she was required to report to a testing facility the next morning by 10 a.m. in her adopted hometown of San Diego. She complied, and the test results were today confirmed.

Justino received a one-year fight license from the NSAC this past September when she took on Jennifer Colomb at Lion Fight 11 and won a third-round TKO.

Several weeks prior to the surprise test, Justino’s now-former rep Tito Ortiz’s issued a statement telling UFC President Dana White “test her or stop lying about her” on performance-enhancers.

Justino, who was flagged and suspended for a steroid in late 2011, is the latest fighter confirmed to have taken part in a random drug test from the Nevada commission, which is waiting on the results of a test administered this past week to World Series of Fighting 9 headliner Rousimar Palhares.

In her first high-profile fight of the year, Justino (12-1) meets Jorina Baars for the Lion Fight featherweight title in the co-headliner of Lion Fights 14, which takes place March 28 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The night’s main card airs live on AXS TV.

Justino is expected to defend her Invicta FC featherweight belt in June, after which she said she will drop to bantamweight for a couple of fights to prove she is capable of fighting in the division dominated by UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey.
