UFC 144 Drug Tests Come In


MMAJunkie has obtained the drug test results from the UFC 144 fight card, revealing that none of the eight fighters tested failed their tests.

With the event taking place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, where there is no official athletic commission in place to regulate MMA events (you don't say?!), the UFC functioned as its own athletic commission and conducted its own testing.

As such, UFC vice president of government and regulatory affairs, Marc Ratner, released the results.

The fighters, eight in all, were tested for drugs of abuse, as well as for performance enhancing drugs. Only main event fighters Frankie Edgar and Benson Henderson were named as fighters who were tested.

Edgar and Henderson fought an evenly-contested bout that was eventually scored a unanimous decision in Henderson's favor. The result being controversial, a rematch between the two has been set up for the summertime.

UFC 144 took place on February 26.
