All six drug tests conducted at UFC on Fox 7 came back clean, Sherdog.com confirmed Tuesday with California State Athletic Commission Executive Director Andy Foster.

UFC on Fox 7 took place April 20 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., and was headlined by Benson Henderson’s hard-fought split decision victory over Gilbert Melendez. Both main event competitors were tested following the event, as were co-headliners Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir, plus two other randomly selected fighters.

Henderson retained his UFC lightweight title at the event, though the result was not without controversy, as multiple media members and one cage-side judge believed Melendez to be the winner. Cormier’s night proved considerably more routine; the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix winner used his superior wrestling to shut down ex-UFC king Mir and cruise to a unanimous decision victory.

The show’s Fox-broadcast main card also saw onetime Strikeforce lightweight king Josh Thomson become the first man finish UFC title contender Nate Diaz with strikes, as “The Punk” stopped Diaz with a second-round head kick and ground-and-pound. Veteran welterweight Matt Brown defied the bookmakers to open the Fox telecast, earning his fifth consecutive win by stopping highly-touted prospect Jordan Mein with a flurry of strikes in round two.
