USA TODAY Sports

California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) tested six Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighters who were included on UFC on FOX 7's fight card, which took place at HP Pavilion in San Jose on April 20, 2013. The results of those tests are now official.

UFC on Fox 7 drug test results are in from the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), which today (April 29, 2013) confirmed that six mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters on the 24-man fight card tested for illegal/banned substances have all passed with flying colors.

The clean half-dozen, comprising main- and co-main event participants, as well as two other randomly-selected (and unnamed) competitors, were screened after competing at the "Henderson vs. Melendez" event at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., on April 20, 2013, for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) such as steroids and drugs of abuse like cocaine and marijuana, among others.

Results from these battery of tests all returned negative, according to Sherdog.com.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson earned a split decision victory over former 155-pound king of the Strikeforce cage, Gilbert Melendez, in the featured fight of the night, while another former Strikeforce talent, Daniel Cormier, easily took care of business in his Heavyweight hustle against Frank Mir, winning a unanimous decision in the co-headline bout.

The other two main card bouts, which aired in primetime on network television in the United States, saw Josh Thomson become the first man in UFC history to stop Nate Diaz and Matt Brown continue his incredible recent run, knocking out Jordan Mein in their Welterweight affair.
