UFC Junior Dos Santos

According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, all 24 athletes who competed in last Saturday’s “UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir” event passed their post-fight drug tests with flying colors.

The committed screened for drugs of abuse, such as marijuana and cocaine, as well as anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing substances.

Friday’s announcement comes as welcomed news for the UFC. The show got off to a nightmarish start when Alistair Overeem was pulled from the main event against heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos (Pictured) after flunking April’s random pre-fight exam.

On that day, dos Santos, Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva all passed their pop quizzes.

UFC 146 took place May 26th inside MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. Dos Santos easily defended his crown against substitute Mir in the night’s featured attraction.
