The Nevada State Athletic Commission is reporting that all 13 of the fighters required to submit a drug test following their UFC 100 fights this past weekend have come up clean.

Among those asked to pee in a cup were headliners Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir, co-headliners Georges St-Pierre and Thiago Alves, as well as Jon Fitch, Dan Henderson, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Mark Coleman, Tom Lawlor, Jon Jones, Dong Hyun Kim, Dan Miller and Shannon Gugerty.

The news today will allow the UFC to breathe a sigh of relief as the last thing they wanted was to have controversy surround their historic centennial event.

Roughly 11,000 fans packed into the Mandalay Bay Event Center last Saturday, garnering the organization a cool $5.1 million at the gate. That doesn’t even include the million-plus pay-per-view buys that the organization was anticipating.

What recession?

The UFC can now officially state their monumental show went off without a hitch.
