All six fighters who underwent drug testing at this month's WEC 47 event tested clean for drugs of abuse and performance-enhancing drugs.
Ohio Athletic Commission Executive Director Bernie Profato today confirmed the results with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).
Those fighters tested at the March 6 event included newly crowned WEC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, fellow headliner Brian Bowles, and main-card winners Joseph Benavidez, Javier Vazquez, L.C. Davis and Bart Palaszewski.
The event took place at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, in conjunction with the Arnold Sports Festival, a three-day sports and fitness exhibition that takes place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and other sites around the city. The WEC's sister promotion, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, first ventured to Columbus to host a show with "the Arnolds" in 2007 and hosted an event each year through 2009.
