Dave Meltzer reports that the California State Athletic Comission has announced that there was one failure for drugs on each show, and the people who failed will be announced tomorrow. No word on why they're turning this into such a dramatic event:

Bill Douglas of the CSAC released that B samples have been returned positive for one fighter on both the July 19th Affliction show in Anaheim and the July 25 EliteXC CBS card in Stockton.

The names will be released tomorrow after notification of the promotions and fighters. Douglas also announced Fabio Negao and Matt Lindland on the Affliction show are clear, as are Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith on the EliteXC show.

I guess results are slowly coming in, and they're just going to announce them as they come. These could be the first failures of many, or the only ones.

Here is the list of fighters that have been cleared on each show so far. Just as a reminder, Justin Levens was suspended.

If it isn't Dewees from the Affliction card this could get ugly.

Just posted the news...Dewees.

Edit: EXC's bust just revealed, and this one hurts big...Antonio Silva. Thought it might've been him.
