Following their fights in the TUF 16 Finale, the NSAC tested every man on the card for banned substances. All 22 men came back clean.

Back on December 15, the latest rendition of the UFC's reality show wound down with The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. In the main event Heavyweight Roy Nelson got his 5th knockout victory in as many UFC wins over late replacement Matt Mitrione. Colton Smith out-wrestled Mike Ricci to win a dominant unanimous decision and the season's Welterweight tournament.

All four of those men, as well as the other 18 competitors of the event passed their post-fight drug screenings. Keith Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission sent out a media release confirming that every fighter on the card was tested after their fight.

Headliner, Roy Nelson participated in additional testing through VADA as well.
