TUF 18 Finale: All fighters pass drug tests

USA TODAY Sports

All 20 fighters on the TUF 18 Finale card passed their drugs tests according to the Nevada commission.

According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, all 20 fighters that competed on The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale in Las Vegas last month passed their drug tests. All came up clean for banned substances. None of the fighters on the card, which featured many fighters making their official UFC debuts, had ever tested positive before.

The card featured a headliner pitting Nate Diaz against Gray Maynard for the third time. Diaz picked up a decisive victory in the rubber match, stopping Maynard with strikes in the first round. Chris Holdsworth and Julianna Pena also claimed their respective Ultimate Fighter crowns.

The commission also issued numbers for the gate and attendance. The gate was $322,742.50, and attendance was 4853. 1697 of those tickets were comps, and 1346 went unused.

The gate was noticeably lower than the TUF 17 Finale which featured Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen in the main event. That show drew a 569k gate in the same venue.
