The California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday informed MMAWeekly.com of the fighters that were drug tested for last Saturday’s Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego.
Gilbert Melendez, Jorge Masvidal, Cris “Cyborg” Santos, Hiroko Yamanaka, Gegard Mousasi, Ovince St. Preux, Devin Cole, and Gabriel Salinas were all test for drugs of abuse. Recreational drugs such as marijuana and cocaine fall under this category. All the drugs of abuse tests came back negative, meaning the test results were clean.
Melendez, Masvidal, Santos, Yamanaka, Mousasi, and St. Preux were the only fighters test for steroids. The results of those tests will be available in approximately two weeks, so they have yet to be cleared of performance enhancing substances.
