We were recently informed by Keith Kizer, Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), that all twenty-four fighters who competed on the UFC 167 card were tested for prohibited substances, with all of the tests producing negative results.

Prior to UFC 167, Georges St Pierre (25-2), who defeated Johny Hendricks (15-2) via split decision in the night’s main event, also opted to go through Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) testing, with Georges recently revealing that those tests also came back negative.

It was also confirmed by Kizer that UFC 167, which took place on November 16th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, produced a gate of $5,759,350 and was attended by 14,856 spectators, including 1,235 complimentary tickets, while only 57 tickets remained unsold.

Due to the main event bout ending in what many have described as a controversial decision, a rematch between St-Pierre and Hendricks ,which is currently in the negotiation stage, is likely to also do strong numbers.
