UFC 161 drug test results are in from the Manitoba Combative Sports Commission (MCSC), which today (July 16, 2013) confirmed that 10 of the 20 mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who were tested for illegal/banned substances after competing at the "Evans vs. Henderson" event on June 15 in Winnipeg, 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.
In addition, no therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) were granted for UFC 161, according to MMA Weekly. That's a bit surprising, considering "Hendo's" past exemptions for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), something he has been taking for six years to stay off the couch.

UFC 161, which took place at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, featured a pay-per-view (PPV) main event of Rashad Evans earning a hard-fought split decision victory over Dan Henderson in their light heavyweight showcase. The co-headlining attraction saw Roy Nelson bring his UFC contract to a close with a unanimous decision loss to Stipe Miocic.
The other three main card bouts had Ryan Jimmo beating Igor Pokrajac in an absolute snoozer, while Alexis Davis outworked Rosi Sexton to a decision with Shawn Jordan winning "Knockout of the Night" for his stoppage of Pat Barry.
