If you were waiting for drug test results from UFC 190 to be released, you can finally be at ease.

According to a statement from CABMMA -- the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission -- all fighters participating on the card returned cleaned samples:

“The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) states that the athletes who participated in UFC 190, held in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 1, 2015, were subject to doping control tests to detect substances in accordance with the Word Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List.

“The athletes were subject to a comprehensive testing program that consisted of both blood and urine collections. All results came back negative. The urine and blood samples were collected by a team of Doping Control Officers (DCO), all of whom are certified in accordance with the WADA International Standards, and sent to WADA-accredited laboratories for analysis.

“All sample collections were conducted by personnel from CABMMA or the Brazilian Authority for Doping Control (ABCD), with representatives from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) present during the sample collection process as well.”

UFC 190 was headlined by Ronda Rousey’s 34-second knockout of Bethe Correia, and also featured a light heavyweight rematch between Mauricio Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, which was won by “Shogun” via unanimous decision.
