The following fighters all tested negative for drugs of abuse (including marijuana, cocaine, etc.), as well as for steroids: Carlos Condit, Hiromitsu Miura, Steve Cantwell, Brian Stann, Jamie Varner, Marcus Hicks, Brian Bowles, Josh Grispi, Brock Larson and Scott Jorgensen.
Other fighters, including Damacio Page, Micah Miller, Carlo Prater, Blas Avena, Dave Terrel, Shane Roller, Todd Moore, Mike Budnik, Greg McIntyre and Kenji Osawa, were not required to undergo screening.
Held at the "The Joint" at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, WEC 35 featured three title fights, including one of the better fights of the year in the main event between WEC Welterweight Champion Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit (23-4) and Hiromitsu Miura (9-5).
Lightweight Champion Jamie "The Worm" Varner (15-2) successfully defended his title over the then-unbeaten Marcus "The Wrecking Ball" Hicks (8-1), while Steve Cantwell (6-1) avenged the only loss of his career to dethrone Brian "All American" Stann (6-1) to become the promotion’s new Light Heavyweight Champion.
In other action, welterweight Brock Larson (24-2) made short work of Carlo Prater (23-6-1) in just 37 seconds to make a case for his own rematch against Condit. The two fought at WEC 29 one year ago, where Condit submitted Larson via armbar in just 2:21 of the first round.
