UFC 162 drug test results come back clean for 'Silva vs. Weidman' event on July 6 in Las Vegas

USA TODAY Sports

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) tested 22 Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighters who were included on the UFC 162 fight card, which took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 6, 2013. The results of those tests are now official.

UFC 162 drug test results are in from Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which today (July 12, 2013) confirmed that all 22 mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who were tested for illegal/banned substances after competing at the "Silva vs. Weidman" event on July 6 in Las Vegas, have all passed with flying colors.

Each combatant was screened for performance enhancing drugs such as steroids, as well as drugs of abuse like cocaine and marijuana, among others. Results from these battery of tests all returned negative.

Chris Leben, as previously reported, was issued a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for the prescription opioid medication Suboxone (details here).

UFC 162 featured a main event that saw Chris Weidman shock the world and not only defeat Anderson Silva and take his middleweight title in the process, but also knock him out.

Cold.

The co-headlining attraction saw Frankie Edgar return to the win column for the first time in four fights, as he earned a hard fought unanimous decision victory over Charles Oliveira for his first dubya at 145 pounds.

The other three main card bouts had Tim Kennedy win a snoozer over Roger Gracie, Mark Munoz successfully return to action with a decision victory over Tim Boetsch, and Cub Swanson stop Dennis Siver for his fifth straight trip to the winner's circle.
