Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Kharitonov' drug tests come back clean

All fighters who underwent drug testing at this month's "Strikeforce Grand Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov" event successfully passed their tests. today confirmed the results with the Ohio Athletic Commission's Bernie Profato.

"Strikeforce Grand Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov" took place Sept. 10 at Cincinnati's U.S. Bank Arena. The night's main card, including the semifinal round of the organization's heavyweight grand prix, aired on Showtime and the preliminary card aired on HDNet.

Among these tested were headliners Josh Barnett and Sergei Kharitonov, co-headliners Daniel Cormier and Antonio Silva, and title-fight participants Luke Rockhold and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. Mike Kyle and Yoel Romero also were randomly selected from the preliminary card for testing.

All of the fighters tested negative for drugs of abuse (such as marijuana and cocaine), as well as anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancers.

Because he had failed past tests in other states, Barnett also underwent additional testing prior to the show. Profato confirmed that Barnett was cooperative throughout the process and passed the tests with no issues.

Great to see the comissions are keeping an extra eye on Barnett, and even greater to see him passing every test

I'm pleased
