The California State Athletic Commission tested every fighter on the recent Strikeforce and EliteXC co-promoted event in San Jose, Calif. for both drugs of abuse and performance enhancing drugs. The CSAC on Monday confirmed that every fighter also came back clean.

The main event on March 29 featured a Strikeforce middleweight championship bout between Frank Shamrock and Cung Le. Shamrock relinquished his title when he could not answer the bell for the fourth round due to a broken arm inflicted by Le’s continual kicks.

Two other fighters were recently suspended by the CSAC due to testing at other events.

Bobby Green, who last competed for the Total Fighting Alliance on March 22, 2008, tested positive for marijuana. His suspension runs from the conclusion of the bout through June 20, 2008. He has been fined $500.

Evan Thompson, who last competed for King of the Cage on March 27, 2008, also tested positive for Marijuana. His suspension runs from the conclusion of the bout through June 25, 2008. He has also been fined $500.
