UFC 179 drug test results come back clean for 'Aldo vs. Mendes 2' in Brazil

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) today released the drug test results for UFC 179, which took place inside Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sat., Oct. 25, 2014.

And no news is good news, especially on the illegal / banned substances front.

Results from the pre- and post-fight drug tests, which include performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) such as steroids and drugs of abuse like cocaine and marijuana, among others, all returned negative for the entire pay-per-view (PPV) card, according to MMA Fighting.

In addition, main event participants, featherweight champion Jose Aldo and top contender Chad Mendes, along with co-headliners Phil Davis and Glover Teixeira, were all subjected to more enhanced blood testing (HGH and EPO), which also came back clean.
