Below is the statement from the CABMMA regarding the testing:

“The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) states that the athletes who participated in UFC 190, held in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 1, 2015, were subject to doping control tests to detect substances in accordance with the Word Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List,” the commission said in a statement sent to the media. “The athletes were subject to a comprehensive testing program that consisted of both blood and urine collections. All results came back negative. The urine and blood samples were collected by a team of Doping Control Officers (DCO), all of whom are certified in accordance with the WADA International Standards, and sent to WADA-accredited laboratories for analysis.

“All sample collections were conducted by personnel from CABMMA or the Brazilian Authority for Doping Control (ABCD), with representatives from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) present during the sample collection process as well.”
