The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) conducted pre and post-fight tests and all fighters returned clean results.
“The UFC has been informed by CABMMA that all fighters on the UFC on FX 8 card passed their pre and post-fight drug tests,” read a prepared statement from the UFC. “The UFC fully supports the drug testing efforts of all regulatory agencies. All fighters are drug tested at every event and the organization maintains a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents.”
UFC on FX 8 took place on May 18 at the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil. Former UFC light heavyweight titleholder Vitor Belfort defeated former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold by knockout in the main event.
It was Rockhold’s UFC debut. Former Strikeforce middleweight titleholder Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza also made his promotional debut on the fight card, defeating Chris Camozzi by arm triangle choke.
