The Nevada State Athletic Commission announced Friday that it tested all 24 fighters who competed at the April 13th, TUF 17 Finale in Las Vegas, and all of them tested negative for performance enhancing drugs and substances of abuse.
The card was hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center and delivered, as expected, a thrilling tilt between Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen. Faber ensured that the MMA world continue to mention the “California Kid” in any discussion pertaining to the bantamweight title shot mix, by tapping out Jorgensen in the fourth round.
Of course, the card also featured a middleweight scrap between Kelvin Gastelum and Uriah Hall, to determine the 17th “Ultimate Fighter.” Gastelum managed to score a split decision win over the heavily hyped Hall to win the competition.
Two of the other fighters who competed at the event, and were subsequently tested, included Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano. The latter went on to stop Tate in the third round and secure a coaching spot opposite bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey in the upcoming season of TUF 18.
