Strikeforce Drug Test Results Come Back Clean For Ronda Rousey And Sarah Kaufman, But ...

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), an organization already known for its lack of organization and hurting finances, today (Sept. 6, 2012) admitted to some rather concerning news.

At the recent Strikeforce: "Rousey vs. Kaufman" event, which took place back on Aug. 18, 2012, at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, Calif., under its jurisdiction, only the two women in the main event -- Ronda Rousey vs. Sarah Kaufman -- were screened for drugs of abuse and performance-enhancers.

This news comes after the CSAC's first blunder, when it prematurely announced that the drug tests for the Showtime-televised event came back "invalid."

Today, the CSAC announced there were no positive tests returned from any of the fighters, but then corrected its position once again, stating that Ronda Rousey and Sarah Kaufman were the only two fighters on the card to be tested. It further stated that the reports of invalid tests were because of a minor error, which was caused by its unfamiliarity with drug testing at a new facility.

Clerical chaos.

In the most recent Strikeforce mixed martial arts (MMA) event, Rousey defeated Kaufman via armbar in the first round of their women's Bantamweight title fight. In addition to the two female fighters, 16 other combatants competed at the event, none of which were drug tested prior to or after stepping inside the cage.
