UFC 178 Main Eventers Demetrious Johnson & Chris Cariaso Randomly Drug-Tested Ahead Of Vegas Showdown

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger Chris Cariaso completed random blood and urine drug tests at the behest of the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) last week ahead of their scheduled UFC 178 title fight.

Johnson (20-2-1), the first 125-pound champion in UFC history, will attempt to successfully defend his belt for a fifth consecutive time when he fights Cariaso (17-5) in the main event of the September 27 pay-per-view, which is slated to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

NAC Chairman Francisco Aguilar didn’t say whether the fighters would be forced to undergo more testing, but did admit on UFC Tonight that “every fighter is subject to random testing including those who may not have a license today but are scheduled to fight on 178.”
