Six fighters from this month’s UFC on FOX 7 event tested clean for performance-enhancing drugs and recreational drugs/drugs of abuse.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently requested and today received the drug-testing results from the California State Athletic Commission, which oversaw the April 20 network-televised event at HP Pavilion in San Jose.
The main event saw lightweight champion Benson Henderson (19-2 MMA, 7-0 UFC) narrowly edge Gilbert Melendez (21-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) via split decision, and in the co-headliner, Daniel Cormier (12-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) made a successful UFC debut with a decision victory over ex-champ Frank Mir (16-7 MMA, 14-7 UFC).
The four co-headliners, and two other randomly chosen fighters, underwent testing.
All tested negative for drugs of abuse (such as marijuana and cocaine), as well as anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancers.
