All six UFC 134 drug test results come back clean from the Aug. 27 event in Brazil.

The six fighters who were tested for illegal drug substances at this past month’s event all submitted clean and negative results, UFC officials announced Thursday.

In an email sent by UFC Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs – Marc Ratner – he confirmed that middleweight champion, , event’s headliner, , and other four fighters, were tested negative towards drug abuse — such as marijuana, cocaine and other steroids or performance supplements.

The UFC 134 event was held last August 27 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. It was said to be the first UFC show that took place in Brazil since 1998. The evening’s main card, which headlined Anderson Silva grabbing his 9th consecutive title defense, aired on pay-per-view. The preliminary card was aired on Spike TV and streamed on Facebook.

The drug testing were coordinated by the UFC officials who hired outside drug testers for the event due to lack of a regulatory body in Brazil.
