However, they are sanctioned by the NSAC like any other bout in Nevada which is why they use commission judges, refs, and Kizer shows up on TUF regularly as commissioner and has even denied some fighters their fight for safety reasons (Jason Guida, for example, for cutting too much weight).
Thanks for clarifying that, I knew I had heard something about them having a weird special status not under the usual sanctioned bouts but wasn't sure what.

But yeah apparently at the time they didn't test on the exhibition fights or whatever except for the finals which were fully sanctioned bouts.

That's interesting considering that season was rather recent.

You know, I can't believe they aren't tested at all. I would imagine they are tested before they enter the house, at least. Guess I'll just ask Kizer.

edit:

He says that the fighters are tested before they enter the house, and randomly afterward.

If that's the case then Wren wasn't randomly tested in the house.

Not necessarily. Many opiates are out of your system in a few days. He could have been taking painkillers for half the season considering he only fought... what... twice?

Yeah, that's certainly true. Wren beat Sims and then lost to Roy Nelson. After that he was just chilling around the house.
