UFC 139 Drug Tests Come Back Negative

Dan Henderson throws against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua

All tested fighters clean following UFC 139

All 12 fighters tested following UFC 139 last month submitted clean samples.

MMAjunkie.com confirmed the news today.

The evening’s main event featured an instant classic between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Dan Henderson in a bout which many consider one of the best of all time, if not the very best. In the co-main event, legend Wanderlei Silva earned a technical knockout victory over Cung Le in an entertaining brawl.

All four of those fighters were tested. The only other main card fighters to be tested were Urijah Faber and Brian Bowles. Faber defeated Bowles via submission in an impressive performance that earned him a shot against bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and, ultimately, a coaching spot on the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

From the preliminary card, Ryan Bader, Jason Brilz, Rafael dos Anjos, Danny Castillo, Shamar Bailey, and Gleison Tibau also submitted samples.
