The drug tests for the UFC 190 card on August 1st are back, and no one failed. The card, which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and featured 26 fighters, was overseen by the Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) and a statement released by them said that every fighter was tested and they all passed.

A rep from CABMMA stated that "the athletes were subject to a comprehensive testing program that consisted of both blood and urine collections", with a USADA official overseeing the entire thing. The samples were tested in a WADA-accredited facility.

The event headliner saw UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey destroy challenger Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds to retain her title. Two fighters on the card, Antonio Silva and Rafael Cavalcante, had failed drug tests in the past.

The promotion will run their next Brazil card on November 7th, with Vitor Belfort rematching Dan Henderson in the main event.
