On Monday the Brazilian MMA athletic commission or CABMMA announced that drug tests were performed on all fighters at UFC Fight Night 36 and that all the results came back clean.

UFC Fight Night 36 took place on Feb. 15 at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil. The event’s main card was aired live on Fox Sports 1 following prelims that were featured on UFC Fight Pass.

The card featured a bout between former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi. Machida decisively won the bout via unanimous decision in the event’s “Fight of the Night.”

The win put Machida at the head of the line for a UFC middleweight title shot against the winner of the UFC 173 showdown between champion Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort.

The co-main event of the evening featured a middleweight clash between contenders Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Francis Carmont. Souza was able to out point Carmont, handing the Frenchman the first loss of his UFC career. It was an important win for Souza, as the former Strikeforce champion is also working his way into the UFC middleweight title picture.

UFC Fight Night 36 marked the UFC’s first trip to Brazil of 2014. The Las Vegas-based promotion will return to the land of the Gracie’s next month for UFC Fight Night 38 featuring a rematch of 2011’s Fight of the Year between Dan Henderson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
