All of the UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Saint Preux drug tests came back clean, according to the Brazilian MMA commission (CABMMA).

The event, which took place in Uberlandia on Nov. 8, was headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Mauricio Rua and Ovince Saint Preux. Saint Preux finished "Shogun" by knockout in just 34 seconds. Rua was initially supposed to face Jimi Manuwa in the headliner, but Manuwa broke his foot a week before and OSP moved up from the co-main event to take his place.

The replacement co-headliner was supposed to be a flyweight contender matchup between John Lineker and Ian McCall, but McCall fell ill after weigh-ins and was diagnosed with a bacterial infection in his blood. He was pulled from the fight after being rushed to the hospital and the entire bout was scrapped.

Warlley Alves and Alan Jouban ended up competing in the co-main event and put on quite the show. Alves won by unanimous decision, a controversial result. Many felt Jouban should have taken the fight on the judges' scorecards.

Saint Preux and Leandro Silva each took home $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses for the event. Silva defeated Charlie Brenneman by first-round submission. Thomas Almeida and Timmy Gorman earned the Fight of the Night bonus. Almeida won the bout by unanimous decision.
