    UFC 146 Combatants Face Surprise Drug Tests Following Press Conference

    The Nevada state athletic commission took advantage of a Tuesday pre-fight press conference held within state lines, electing to order surprise drug tests for all six fighters who appeared at the UFC 146 event in Las Vegas.

    The testing was done following its conclusion, NSAC executive director Keith Kizer told MMA Fighting, confirming a tweet by Ron Kruck of "Inside MMA."

    Kizer said it was the first time the commission had screened multiple participants of a mixed martial arts event during a press conference so far ahead of time, though they had done the same in July for a championship boxing match scheduled to take place in August between Abner Mares and Joseph Agbeko.

    "We brought the drug test to them instead of making them go to the drug test," Kizer said. "If they were not in Las Vegas, I would need to find them a lab, which is of course, much more of a hassle."

    The six fighters tested were UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, challenger Alistair Overeem, former champs Cain Velasquez and Frank Mir, and Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva.

    The test counts as one of the two random draws Overeem must submit himself to after a hearing with the commission last December. That meeting was necessary after Overeem took six days to submit to a requested drug test while moving from Nevada to Holland, and Overeem agreed to the stipulation in order to go forward with his UFC 141 fight against Brock Lesnar, which he won via first-round TKO.

    NSAC has long had the ability to test fighters out of competition, but only recently gained extra funding to implement it after a bill was signed into law by Gov. Brian Sandoval to increase department revenue.

    According to Kizer, the commission currently has a deal in place with Quest Diagnostics which allows the lab to send testers on-site to obtain samples. After the conclusion of the UFC 146 press conference, the fighters were taken in groups of two to an MGM Grand VIP lounge to submit their sample.

    Kizer could not say when the results would be made available, saying they may not be publicly released until after the event's May 26 completion. Of course, that would likely change if any of the tests came back positive and put one of the night's big fights into jeopardy.

    Dana White Believes Current UFC Heavyweights Match Up With PRIDE Heyday

    Leave it to Frank Mir to bluntly answer a question that's been asked ad nauseum. Since the announcement of UFC 146's all-heavyweight main card, many have wondered what exactly it says about us that we seem to care more about MMA's biggest than any other weight class.

    The former UFC champ addressed that question on Tuesday at a press conference to promote the event. Using the bantamweight division as an example, Mir said that a lighter weight fighter could be the best at his division, but that doesn't mean he has the total respect of everyone watching. Human nature being what it is, some will inevitably walk away with a twinge of doubt.

    "I think a lot of people, when they're watching the fights, in the back of their mind, they kind of feel like, 'I'm 220. Even though he knows how to fight, I can probably kick his ass,'" Mir said. "We’re the heavyweights. If you’re thinking that, you’re stupid."
    As a result, you have relevant fights that are likely to capture the public's attention. From the estimation of UFC president Dana White, it's the strongest division the promotion has ever boasted. In fact, he said, it may even come close to equaling PRIDE at its best.

    "Their heavyweight division was awesome," he said. "That's where a lot of legends were built, over there. Absolutely, I think that's where our heavyweight division is finally getting, and the division has been great and stacked for a few years now."

    UFC 146's 10 fights feature 2,539.5 pounds of heavyweight monster, those numbers coming at last count of the most recent weigh-ins. While the event booking might be seen as an advertising gimmick, it's at least a good one, with a championship on the line as well as a near-certain reshuffling of the top 10 based upon the night's outcomes.

    But what does it say about the future of the UFC's biggest weight class that the smallest of the 10 heavyweights scheduled to populate the main card is the division's champion?

    Two-hundred-thirty-nine pound Junior Dos Santos reigns over the land formerly controlled by giants like Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin, who threatened to run the lighter, more agile fighters out of the division. At least for now. The rest of the story will be told on May 26, when the MGM Grand reinforces its famous buffet for the event's arrival.

    The night's key matchups will no doubt rock the boat one way or the other. Aside from Dos Santos' first title defense against Alistair Overeem, Mir faces Cain Velasquez in the former champ's first fight back since losing his belt.

    Velasquez admitted that his defeat was the first time he'd suffered a loss in competition since wrestling in the NCAA collegiate championship tournament way back in 2006. That means he's been living in a foreign world for the last few months, attempting to rebound into the win column rather than continuing on the momentum he had built for himself.

    To hear him tell it, he's been able to draw upon those experiences to help him move forward after this more recent setback.

    "It's not difficult, no," he said. "I love what I do. In wrestling, you have a loss, it's not the end of world. You have to come back stronger, be healthy, watch film and see what you did wrong. Learn from your mistakes. You can't dwell on that kind of stuff. You have to move forward and try to get better."

    That's the same thing the UFC did with its biggest division, which went through some lean times a few years ago. In the years since, talent has been added, most recently bolstered by the arrival of the Strikeforce heavyweights. It's an improvement that's been welcome by even the old guard. As Mir explained, it's for the benefit of all.

    "Back in the day, the fights got spread out a bit farther because there wasn't as many guys to match up against. Anytime you're trying make a run towards the title, the worst thing in the world is to get an opponent, that when you tell people you're fighting him, they ask who that is. At least now, we don't have that issue. Almost everyone in the top 10 of the UFC is a household name, recognizable, and that makes it much more pleasurable to train and fight. There’s always a risk when you walk in the octagon, I’d rather take that risk against someone who's considered dangerous than take that risk against an unknown."

    Dit wordt het gevecht van 2012 voor mij. Ik ga met adrenaline door mijn lijf op het puntje van mijn stoel zitten zonder 1 keer met mijn ogen te knipperen.

    Kaarten zijn gisteravond in de verkoop gegaan, maar kosten nu al zo'n $425 p.p. voor zitten op de eerste ring. Beetje teveel van het goede. Had er graag naartoe gegaan.

    Jammer Harrie maar de prijzen voor goede plaatsen zijn inderdaad erg duur.
