On Monday morning California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) Exec. Director Andy Foster contacted The Fight Corner to state that all 22 fighters who competed at UFC 184 on Feb. 28 in Los Angeles, Ca., had passed their post-fight drug tests.

On Friday, the results of the urine tests had been returned and all competitors were clean. The blood work took a bit longer to be analyzed thoroughly.

It was an unprecedented move by the CSAC. Never before had they conducted post-fight tests on all the competitors at a single MMA event in the state’s history. Blood and urine samples were collected from each fighter on the card. All passed with flying colors.

In a statement provided by Foster via e-mail, he commended the athletes:
“UCLA’s Olympic Analytical Laboratory has reported the drug testing results from UFC 184 to the California State Athletic Commission have all come back clean.  All 22 licensed mixed martial artists were tested, submitting both blood and urine specimens.  The Commission would like to commend the fighters at this event and for upholding the best traditions of martial arts.”
