All fighters who competed on “The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale” tested negative for performance enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission tested 13 fighters in total. The results were relayed to Sherdog on Tuesday by NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer.

The event, which took place Dec. 4 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort, was headlined by a lightweight attraction between finalists Michael Johnson and Jonathan Brookins, in which Brookins earned a hard-fought unanimous decision.

As is typical, both main event competitors were tested by the commission. Testing is usually performed on both headliners, the card's winners and any fighters who previously failed a test.

Aside from Brookins and Johnson, “TUF 12” competitors tested by the NSAC were Stephan Bonnar, Igor Pokrajac, Demian Maia, Rick Story, Leonard Garcia, Cody McKenzie, Kyle Watson, Nick Pace, Pablo Garza, Ian Loveland and David Branch.
