All Fighters Return Clean Drug Tests For UFC Fight Night 36

The Brazilian Athletic Commission (Comissao Athletica Brasileira) announced on Monday that all UFC Fight Night 36 combatants were tested for performance-enhancing drugs, and that all 24 came back clean.

UFC Fight Night 36 took place on February 15th, and emanated out of the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, in (obviously) Brazil. Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi headlined the card, which saw Lyoto pick up a decision win over the former Strikeforce champion.

Next up for the Brazilian fans will be a light heavyweight scrap between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Dan Henderson, in a rematch of their epic first encounter. Many fans and pundits believe that their first clash was one of the greatest fights in UFC history; hopefully they can catch lightning in a bottle for the second time, during the March 23rd event.
