All drug tests conducted at UFC Fight Night 32 came back clean, according to an official statement from the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA).

The regulatory body revealed the results Tuesday, verifying that all fighters who competed at the Nov. 9 event underwent testing. UFC Fight Night 32 took place at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil, and was headlined by a light heavyweight rematch between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson, both of whom use testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

“The results of these tests did not reveal any illicit drug use, and/or to improve performance, stimulants or substances used to mask the presence of the same by any of the athletes who participated in the [event],” the CABMMA statement read.

Belfort avenged his 2006 defeat to Henderson in the main event, scoring a first-round knockout over the former two-division Pride champion live on Fox Sports 1. The show also saw Jeremy Stephens violently stop “TUF: Brazil” winner Rony Mariano Bezerra at 145 pounds, while welterweight prospect Brandon Thatch wrecked Brazilian veteran Paulo Thiago with a powerful knee to the body.
