All 15 fighters that were tested for drug by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the UFC 132 card have come back clean, according to Executive Director Keith Kizer in a statement put out by the commission. This means they passes a test for performance enhancing and recreational drugs.

The fighters that were tested include main eventers Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber, co-main eventers Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben, Tito Ortiz, Ryan Bader, Carlos Condit, Dennis Siver, Melvin Guillard, Shane Roller, Rafael Dos Anjos, Brian Bowles, Aaron Simpson, Anthony Njokuani and Jeff Hougland.

In other news, an infusion of cash has also allowed Nevada to begin out-of-competition testing again, according to Kizer in an interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN:

The commission has had the authority to randomly test its athletes since 2008, but financial restrictions have limited its ability to do so since 2009. That changed last month, when Gov. Brian Sandoval signed into law a bill that will feed close to $200,000 into the state's program during the next two years.

"We have the money this month, so I would be surprised if we didn't do some tests in July," Keith Kizer, executive director of NSAC, told ESPN.com. "Each test runs right around $200, so when it's all said and done, we'll test a pretty good chunk."

This is a great report. It said they tested what, 15 fighters who were on that card, and all were clean? Awesome. I am glad they are going to start that out of competiton testing again, too.

It brings new meaning to the phrase "Let's keep it clean!"
