... Everybody was clean, of those tested :p

All 15 fighters tested for drugs of abuse and performance enhancers at this month's UFC 116 tested clean, according to results given to MMA Fighting by Nevada state athletic commission executive director Keith Kizer.

UFC 116 took place on July 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, with Brock Lesnar defeating Shane Carwin via second-round submission in the main event. With the win, Lesnar retained the UFC heavyweight championship..

Lesnar and Carwin were among those tested and the results came back clean. The NSAC has traditionally tested both main event fighters, though all fighters are subject to random testing.

Also tested and cleared were co-main event participants Chris Leben and Yoshihiro Akiyama along with Chris Lytle, Matt Brown, Krzyzstof Soszynski, Stephan Bonnar, Brendan Schaub, George Sotiropoulos, Kendall Grove, Ricardo Romero, Jon Madsen, Gerald Harris and Daniel Roberts.

Not tested were Kurt Pellegrino, Chris Tuchscherer, Seth Petruzelli, Goran Reljic, Dave Branch, Forrest Petz and Karlos Vemola. In all, 15 fighters were tested while seven were not.

No UFC fighter has failed a drug test since Karo Parisyan tested positive for three banned substances at UFC 94 in Jan. 2009.

What a SURPRISE! Lesnar didnt take steroids!

Take that all you people who accused him of taking steroids to get back into shape after his illness. I hope you cry at night.

I don't think he used steroids, but its fairly easy (if you ahve the right people around you and know things) to pass most drug tests. Overeem...

the drug testing in the UFC is a joke. To be legitimate the testing should be done on blood samples randomly taken throughtout the year. Telling someone they will be tested on a specific date can be gamed by a 14 year old with an internet connection.

To be fair Overeem only did it by hiding in Japan, the land of test free sports. Barnett did same thing but got busted in US, guess Overem learned from Barnett's mistake. ^^

He would of been in worse shape if he was on Androgens.

HGH, HGH secretogues, IGF-1 injections would have helped, but are virtually impossible to test for in spot testing.
