According to's Guilherme Cruz, who spoke to Dr. Marcio Tannure, medical director of CABMMA, all fighters were tested before their bouts on Saturday night, and then the main event fighters -- Jose Aldo and Chan Sung Jung -- in addition to four other randomly selected fighters, were tested after they competed inside Octagon.

All results came back negative.
