Nevada Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer last Friday announced that the Commission has expanded steroid and drug testing for licensed fighters and those applying for licenses.

In addition to the testing performed on contestants on fight night, the Commission will require licensed fighters and licensing applicants to be tested at other times during the year.

Selection of licensees for testing will be made in one of three ways:
1. Fighters may be randomly chosen for testing.
2. If there is some indication that a fighter is taking a non-approved substance, they may be tested.
3. If a fighter has previously tested positive for using a non-approved substance, they may be tested.

MMAWeekly.com recently questioned Kizer on some of the particulars of the new testing.

Great news, sounds like the NSAC is doing it the right way, no travel or extra costs for the fighters is the way to go.
