Lightweights Jim Miller and Joe Lauzon were subject to out-of-competition drug testing in advance of UFC 155, the Nevada State Athletic Commission recently informed MMAjunkie.co.

Both fighters passed tests for steroids and diuretics, NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer said.

Miller and Lauzon meet on the main card of the pay-per-view event, which takes place Dec. 29 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Not surprising. Especially Joe the guy doesn't smoke weed and isn't exactly Overeem'd up. Any news of this fight being bumped up to co-main?

If they test Joe they might find a Skittle he took before camp started or something, but that is about it. Guy is so clean you could manufacture computer chips in him.

Miller probably the same, he is just not from around here, so I wouldn't know one way or the other.

I wasn't insinuating anything, just wondering because the report singles out steroids and diuretics, but omits recreational drugs.

Testing two of the cleanest, classiest guys of the entire sport randomly seems like a good idea. Said no one ever.

you're not the only one. That said, whoop dee fuckin doo NSAC. Testing two of the few fighters that NO ONE EVER assumed would have EVER used anything considered a PED is....well I'm not against it but announcing it like its some big shocker is silly. Did they test anyone else or just the two most squeaky clean fighters on the UFC roster?

"Both fighters passed tests for steroids and diuretics"

Whatever, what about weed? We can't have professional fighters smoking the devil's herb.

Random testing is... random. If they were only testing guys who look like body builders, that won't be very random now would it?

Don't know for a fact but I imagine NSAC tests for all the banned substances, whether it's after the fight or before.

but but but 98% of pro fighters are on peds

Joe will be getting high. High on life after he taps Miller with a Peruvian necktie at 2:14 of round 2 after the most exciting first round in MMA history.

I think the test would have caught recreational stuff too. Luckily, ice cream is still allowed. Phone Post

My point is they should be random testing everyone or at least more than two guys, not just picking a couple guys here and there.

Picking a couple of guys here and there is sort of the definition of random.

part of it being random is the timing. you can choose more than two guys out of 20 and still keep it random. only choosing two gives the other 18 a really good chance of not being chosen to test.

Be careful with Ben an Jerry's Chunky Monkey bro. I heard it will make you test positive for heroin. Kinda like poppy seed muffins.

Ideally, they would. But from what I remember hearing in interviews, the NSAC's budget sucks.

Their entire annual budget is something like $700,000. Their out of competition testing budget is a sliver of that. They actually didn't do any one year, since the legislature didn't budget it.

WADA gets $100k to test for one of Mayweather's fights. VADA charges $5k-10k for each participant in an eight week program. The NSAC just can't afford to test very many people. It sucks, but I don't know any other state that do any random out of competition tests at all. So at least it's something.
