Ultimate Fight Night 29 Drug Tests Come Back Clean
The Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) has confirmed that all fighters who competed at Ultimate Fight Night 29 on October 9th have passed their post-fight drug tests.
CABMMA tested the fighters for performance-enhancers, masking agents and recreational drugs and all fighters came up clean.
Of particular note and happily, is that Thiago Silva has passed his second straight post-fight drug test. As fans know, Silva has struggled with the issue in the past. Hopefully, we now have evidence of consistent compliance again, and we can stop worrying about whether or not a Silva win will be overturned 14 days after the fact.
However, it should be noted, that all though not stated or confirmed, it would be reasonable to suspect that Silva’s post-fight samples did test positive for excessive amounts of fried foods and dairy based products.
In looking at the shape that Silva showed up in for his bout with Matt Hamill, one wonders whether or not the UFC shouldn’t have a body fat standard for their fighters; a basic limit that they’d have to stay within or be within, “X” number of weeks out from a fight. For most fighters it wouldn’t be an issue. For those that it might be an issue for, they’d probably be grateful that the standard was in place come the second or third round of their next fight.
