All drug tests conducted at
UFC Fight Night 30 came back clean, according to UFC executive
UFC vice president of regulatory affairs announced the test
results on Tuesday evening via Twitter.
“All drug tests from our show in Manchester came back negative for
all [performance-enhancing drugs] and illegal drugs of abuse,”
Ratner wrote, though he did not reveal which fighters were tested
at the event.
As with past international events, the UFC acted as its own
regulatory body at the Oct. 26 show, which emanated from the
Phones4U Arena in Manchester, England, and was headlined by
Machida’s middleweight debut opposite former training partner
Munoz. “The Dragon” was successful in his foray at 185 pounds,
knocking out Munoz with a head kick midway through round one.
The event also saw Melvin
Guillard and Ross
Pearson fight to a no contest after Guillard accidentally kneed
the Brit in the head while his hand was on the mat. The
lightweights will now rematch on March 8, when they square off at
“Gustafsson vs. Manuwa” from the O2 Arena in London.
