No Positive Tests for UFC 78 Fighters

All 18 fighters who participated in November’s UFC 78 event in Newark, New Jersey have passed drug screenings administered by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board according to a report from MMA Weekly:

“…every fighter on the card submitted a urine sample on the night of the event and was tested for performance enhancers, alcohol, illegal drugs or drugs of abuse, unauthorized prescription drugs, and banned over-the-counter substances.

Beyond the urine samples taken from every fighter on the card, four competitors were selected the week of the bout to submit a blood test as well.

The NJSACB announced that none of the competitors tested positive for any performance enhancers with the tests they conducted.”

Results from the drugs of abuse tests were not released.
