The UFC still is considering more changes to its existing policies regarding drug testing, but in advance of UFC on FX 7, the promotion has instituted two new rules to act as deterrents.

All fighters who compete on international events will be tested for performance-enhancing drugs, UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Additionally, the promotion won't pay out fight-night bonuses until drug testing results are available, Ratner said.

Currently, the UFC offers cash incentives for "Knockout of the Night," "Submission of the Night" and "Fight of the Night." Typically, they are handed out after the event and announced by UFC President Dana White.

The changes will be in place this weekend when UFC on FX 7 goes down at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The event's main-card airs on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.

Nice! They shouldn't pay for anything other than the show money either since the fight gets negated to a NC.

this is a good call. it would be bullshit to see a fighter walk away with a 70k bonus for FOTN and then find out he pissed hot for roids.
