ufc steroids test
The Nevada State Athletic Commission recently informed that all 12 of the fighters randomly tested for drugs on the UFC 81: "Breaking Point" fight card on February 2 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, came back negative.

Here's the list:

  • Timothy Sylvia
  • Antonio Nogueira
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Frank Mir
  • Nathan Marquardt
  • Jeremy Horn
  • Rob Emerson
  • Tim Boetsch
  • Tyson Griffin
  • Marvin Eastman
  • Ricardo Almeida
  • Chris Lytle

Fighters are tested for banned substances such as performance-enhancing anabolic steroids, as well as recreational drugs like marijuana and cocaine.

There's no tried and true reason behind the selection process -- six fighters were not required to submit samples for testing. However, it's customary that state athletic commissions screen the marquee fighters at the very least.
