The UFC has something to be thankful for this week. Despite a controversy-laden title fight at UFC 167, the event will at the very least not be further marred by any illegal drug use.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has revealed that drug tests were performed for all of the UFC 167 fighters, and none of them tested positive for any banned substances.

With the VADA/WADA debacle behind us as well, hopefully GSP can now put to rest the rumors of steroid use, and figure out what he wants to do next in his MMA career.

UFC 167 was headlined by a welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks. GSP defended his title via a controversial split decision.
In the co-main event, Chael Sonnen was finished in the first round by Rashad Evans.
