Zingano provided a urine small sample on Feb. 10; Rousey on Feb. 11. Their samples had been both tested for a battery of performance-enhancing drugs, per the World Anti-Doping Agency standards, through Quest Diagnostics in Los Angeles.

The CSAC had the tests expedited to ensure the results came back well ahead regarding fight time really should any issues arise.

Rousey versus Zingano took over the UFC 184 headlining slot following the original headlining bout was nixed. UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman had to withdraw from his title defense in opposition to Vitor Belfort due to injury. Belfort subsequently refused the UFC's offer of an interim title bout to stay on the card.

Weidman and Belfort are slated to be the co-main event in the UFC 187 on May 23 in Las vegas. That card will probably be headlined by a light heavyweight title bout between champ Jon Jones and also challenger Anthony Johnson.
