NSAC Considering Less Expensive Enhanced Drug Testing Company
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.08.2014



The Nevada State Athletic Commission is considering using a company that could seriously cut down on the cost of enhanced drug testing for MMA fighters out of competition. MMAjunkie reports that the commission will discuss potentially using the National Center for Drug Free Sport next week during a meeting in Las Vegas. The idea is that the Center, who would cut the current cost of enhanced testing for a single bout by $20,000, would allow regulators to have more flexibility in terms of when and how enhanced testing can be done.

NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar told the site, "We're just exploring all our options at this point to find a more cost effective way to do this." The move is believed to be in response to comments from the UFC's Lorenzo Fertitta that the the current cost of enhanced testing ($45,000) limits the amount that the promotion could pay for.

If the National Center for Drug Free Sport is approved next week, the company could be used for UFC 175 in July.
