In the case of UFC drug tests, no news is good news.

USA TODAY Sports

UFC Fight Night 29 drug test results are in from the Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA), which today (Oct. 14, 2013) confirmed that all 20 of the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters tested for illegal/banned substances have passed with flying colors.

Having said that, please ignore this link.

Results from those battery of tests, which include performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) such as steroids and drugs of abuse like cocaine and marijuana, among others,.all returned negative, according to MMA Fighting. That's significant in that four of the tested combatants, including Jake Shields, Thiago Silva, Joey Beltran and Rousimar Palhares, have all failed in the past.

Shields, as well as fellow headliner Demian Maia, joined four other randomly-selected fighters for a follow-up test after the event.

Clean as a whistle!

After all was said and done, Shields was able to do just enough to squeak out a split-decision victory, which was in stark contrast to the co-main event, where Dong Hyun Kim shocked the crowd by pasting hometown hero Erick Silva in 170-pound action.

See it to believe it.
