Chris Weidman's random drug test results come back clean ahead of UFC 184

Chris Weidman's results from a random drug test administered by California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) on Nov. 21, 2014, have come back clean for any banned substances.

CSAC Executive Officer, Andy Foster, informed of the good news earlier this afternoon.

Weidman will face Vitor Belfort at UFC 184, which takes place at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., on Feb. 28, 2015. Belfort -- who has failed drug tests in the past -- has already been tested three times by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) because of a conditional agreement that was ordered at a hearing last year.

All the results have come back clean, too.

Weidman and Belfort were originally supposed to fight at UFC 181 last month, but now that the fight has been moved to Los Angeles, both commissions have been working together, with NSAC sending test results to CSAC to keep them abreast on Belfort's results.

"I think Bob Bennet (Executive Director of NSAC) has been doing an outstanding job with his testing," Foster said. "He has been keeping me informed and telling me what has been happening. So, I have those results."

Foster said he plans on testing Belfort two more times as Feb. 28, 2015, draws closer because the CSAC is the regulating commission for UFC 184.

With the bad news that has surfaced this week on UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Jon Jones, this will shed some positive light on the promotion.
