UFC 132 drug test results come back clean for 'Cruz vs Faber 2' on July 2 in Las Vegas


UFC 132 drug test results are in from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which today confirmed that all 15 fighters tested for illegal/banned substances have all passed with flying colors.

Fighters that competed on the card that were tested were all screened for performance enhancers such as steroids and drugs of abuse like cocaine and marijuana, among others, after competing at the "Cruz vs. Faber 2"-branded event on Sat., July 2, 2011 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Results from these battery of tests all came back negative.

The fighters who were tested were randomly selected. However, athletic commissions often test the main event participants and fight night winners, as well as those who have failed drug tests in the past.

UFC 132 featured the first bantamweight championship fight in the history of the promotion, as titleholder Dominick Cruz defended his strap against Urijah Faber in a hard fought grudge match.

"The Dominator" was successful in his defense of said title, earning a unanimous decision win after five grueling rounds against his arch nemesis, "The California Kid."

Also on the docket was a middleweight showdown between Chris Leben and Wanderlei Silva, which "The Crippler" won by knockout after just 27 seconds and nearly as many uppercuts.

In addition, Tito Ortiz resurrected his career from the ashes with a stunning first round submission win over number seven ranked light heavyweight Ryan Bader.
