UFC 127 drug test results are in from UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner (via Heavy.com), who today confirmed that six fighters tested for illegal/banned substances after competing at UFC 127: "Penn vs. Fitch" on Feb. 26 have all passed with flying colors.
Because the UFC isn't beholden to an athletic commission in Australia, they took matters into their own hands.
Main event participants B.J. Penn and Jon Fitch, as well as four other fighters competing on the card, were all screened for performance enhancers such as steroids and drugs of abuse like cocaine and marijuana, among others.
Results from these battery of tests all came back negative.
The fighters mentioned above were randomly selected. However, athletic commissions (or in this case the UFC) typically test the main event participants and fight night winners, as well as those who have failed drug tests in the past.
UFC 127 featured a main event fight between top welterweight contenders B.J. Penn and Jon Fitch that was supposed to determine who would challenge next for the 170-pound strap.
Unfortunately, the judges "Down Under" couldn't make up their mind after three back-and-forth rounds and declared the fight a draw.
