Six UFC 158 fighters pass drug test
UFC 158 featured a welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz. As with most events that occur under the UFC banner, a selection of fighters were chosen to be tested for drugs of abuse and/or performancing enhancing drugs. Today those results were released to the public:
Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux (Quebec’s athletic commission) today (April 4, 2013) informed MMAmania.com that its drug test results were in for the UFC 158: “St. Pierre vs. Diaz” pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place on Sat., March 16, from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
Six of the 24 participating fighters tested for drugs of abuse, as well as performance enhancing substances, have all passed with flying colors.
Who were the lucky half-dozen put under the microscope? That remains a mystery, as the commission would not disclose the names of the athletes tested due to their “confidential nature.”
