Keith Kizer, Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, on Wednesday released the drug test results for the competitors of “The Ultimate Fighter” season ten finale, which took place Dec. 5 at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.
Nine fighters were tested for performance enhancers and drugs of abuse: Roy Nelson, Brendan Schaub, Matt Hamill, Jon Jones, Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson, Frankie Edgar, Matt Mitrione, John Howard, and Mark Bocek.
All tests came back negative.
In the reality show final, Nelson knocked out Schaub to win the title of “The Ultimate Fighter.” The portly fighter won a multi-year, multi-fight contract with the UFC as reward.
The main event of the Spike television event, Jon Jones vs. Matt Hamill, was marred by a disqualification stoppage when referee Steve Mazzagatti ruled that Jones had thrown an illegal elbow late in the first round and stopped the fight.
A reported 1,400 fans turned out at the Palms Casino for a live gate take of $504,350.
