UFC Fight Night 29 post-fight test results: not a single fighter tested positive for banned substances

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) has released the results of the post fight tests of all the fighters that competed at UFC Fight Night 29 and surprisingly, all of them passed the test. Four men from the main cards had previously failed the test including the man of the night Jake Shields. Prior to the upset win over Maia, Shields was tested for an undisclosed substance that resulted in the overturning of the Ed Herman win to No Contest. The other three are Thiago Silva, Joey Beltran and the Rousimar Palhares.

Silva, who defeated Matt Hamill in his recent fight, has already failed the test twice. He faked a urine sample in the post-fight test of his decision win over Brandon Vera in UFC 125. Silva would again fail the drug test by testing positive for marijuana after handing the first career loss of Stanislav Nedkov in November last year.

Both Palhares and Beltran were suspended after failing the post-fight tests of UFC on FX 6 that was held last December in Australia. In that incident, Palhares tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone while Beltran was positive for anabolic steroids.
