For the first time in its short history, Invicta FC will utilize random drug testing for its upcoming fifth event on April 5. Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp confirmed the news with MMAjunkie.com on Sunday evening. Fighters who will be competing in April were informed of the new policy in late January. An independent agency in conjunction with the Missouri Office of Athletics will handle the testing.

Knapp states that the testing will be done in order to ensure that all Invicta FC athletes are competing on a level playing field. She believes that PED use is a significant problem in MMA and one that affects female fighters as well as men. Invicta FC 5 competitors will be tested at random on the evening before the event. Fighters will not be informed in advance as to whether they will or will not be subject to the testing.

The new anti-PED policy will extend to all future Invicta FC events. The promotion is currently fielding offers from a number of independent testing agencies and hopes to confirm its new testing partner later this week.

While news of the testing comes mere days after the promotion announced the signing of Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, who tested positive for a steroid in 2011, the plans to institute the new drug tests were first put into place weeks before Santos was brought into the organization.

I'll specify a bit. A collective "oh shit" is released by a certain muscular fighter and her big headed/cracked skull manager.

It's supposed to be a random test but they tell you exactly when it will be. I doubt anyone will be caught.

Guess Cyborg might as well take that UFC contract now. If Invicta isn't going to be a place to hide from testing.

Cyborg will get popped again unless she figures out how to properly cycle instead of being on the sauce 24/7

It's another good sign that Invicta is trying to maintain a good relationship with the UFC. Which is smart. Something SF could have been doing (and SF would be thriving right now). DW was willing to loan out Cyborg... Invicta wins either way, because they're being smart. But I suspect that DW dropped these suggestions about serious testing.

Anyone notice that this "random testing" is only the right before the fight? The randomness is in WHO gets tested, not WHEN everyone gets tested. In other words, cycle away, Cyborg!
