Scott Coker Talks Internal Drug Tests: ‘It Was Just the Right Thing to Do’

ST. LOUIS — As the fighters on Saturday night’s Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery card filed out of the Scottrade Center and back to their hotel after Friday afternoon’s weigh-ins, their work for the day wasn’t quite finished.
According to Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, once back at the hotel all fighters were required to submit to drug tests administered internally by the Strikeforce organization via a local independent laboratory.
"It wasn’t based on any one specific fighter," Coker told MMA Fighting. "It was just the right thing to do. It’s so all the fighters, all the fans, and all the media know what’s going on. I talked to all the fighters about it and they were all fine with it."
