Keith Kizer, Executive Director for the Nevada State Athletic Commission, on Wednesday released drug testing results for UFC 92 on Dec. 27 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

All athletes tested at the event came back negative for drugs of abuse and performance enhancers. Included in the test were Forrest Griffin, Rashad Evans, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Frank Mir, Brad Blackburn, Matt Hamill, Antoni Hardonk, Yushin Okami, Cheik Kongo, Quinton Jackson, CB Dollaway, and Pat Barry.

The commission in March of 2008 ramped up its drug deterrent program, instituting year round testing on athletes, particularly in cases of high profile fights. Since then, there has not been a high profile positive test in mixed martial arts competitors in the state of Nevada.
