The fighters tested included both main eventers, Bobby Voelker and Roger Bowling, as well as Ovince St. Preux, Shawn Jordan, Devin Cole, Joe Cason, Anthony Smith, Bill Cooper, Sterling Ford, Sarah Kaufman, Adlan Amagov, and TJ Cook.
“All tests were negative for prohibited substances,” NSAC executive director Keith Kizer informed MMAWeekly.com on Friday.
