UFC to drug test 152 co-headliners

source: mmajunkie.com
 

The UFC will employ an independent drug-testing firm to test UFC 152's headliners, as well as other fighters on the fight card.

UFC Director of Canadian Operations Tom Wright confirmed the news today during a press conference in support of the event, which takes place Saturday at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

"We will be doing those testings through the Ontario Athletic Commission," Wright said. "When the results come back, if there are any issues, they'll be provided to ... the [OAC] for them to issue any sanctions that they may desire."

Good deal. The drug testing is pretty inexpensive anyway (about $200-$300 per person in Indiana).

  Legit athletic commissions handle the drug testing independently. Unfortunately, the OAC is very poorly run.

Ummm, don't they do this for every card?  This would be like UG Blog starting a thread saying that weigh-ins will be held prior to the fight.
