The NSAC chose 10 fighters for random fight night drug tests at UFC 91, including Randy Couture & Brock Lesnar. NSAC head Keith Kizer has announced that all 10 of those tests came back clean.

There were also 10 fighters from UFC 91 tested prior to the event as part of Nevada's out-of-competition testing process, which made its debut this year.

The fighters that were tested prior to UFC 91 – who all returned negative results – were: Randy Couture, Brock Lesnar, Nick Catone, Amir Sadollah, Aaron Riley, Jorge Gurgel, Alvin Robinson, Mark Bocek, Nate Quarry, and Demian Maia.


Great to hear that they all passed the pre-fight random tests, hopefully this will reduce some of the steroid talk that always follows Brock around.

Hopefully so, but considering how long some of these drugs supposedly can stay in your system I think it'll take testing a little more often. Every 4-6 weeks may sound a bit excessive but based on what I've read about some of these steroids that's probably the right timeframe.

There is no such thing as over testing. I would be in favor of tests being preformed more often.

How long before the card are these done? Wasn't Sadollah/Catone off the card a week or so before the event happened ?

I think if they can test weekly when your on probation they should be able to test weekly for these guys. I know they are not in trouble but it all comes down to this...... if you are not using , then you have nothing to worry about!!!!
