All UFC ‘Fight for the Troops 2’ Drug Tests Come Back Clean

By Mike Whitman Feb 17, 2011
All six fighters who submitted to a drug screen prior to UFC “Fight for the Troops 2” tested negative for both drugs of abuse and performance enhancing substances.

Marc Ratner, UFC vice president of regulatory affairs, confirmed the results with Sherdog.com on Thursday. “Fight for the Troops 2” aired live on Spike TV Jan. 22 and reportedly raised nearly $4.1 million for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

The event took place at Fort Hood near Killeen, Texas, and was headlined by a pivotal lightweight clash between Melvin Guillard and Evan Dunham. Both main event competitors were subjected to drug screens, as were four other randomly selected fighters whose identities were not revealed.

The tests were conducted by an independent laboratory at the UFC’s request. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation -- the state body that oversaw the proceedings on Jan. 22 -- does not require athletes to be drug tested before or after an event.

In the evening’s featured attraction, Guillard shocked bookmakers by knocking out the world-ranked Dunham in the first round. After crumpling the Oregonian with a laser-like counter right hand, Guillard swarmed on his opponent with a flurry of punches and knees that earned him the TKO stoppage only 2:58 into the bout.
