It is unknown just how many times the UFC veterans were tested leading into their encounter.

MMA Fighting is reporting that at least one of the tests for both fighters were done at Bellator 192, where they were appearing as a part of the heavyweight grand prix festivities.

Nelson and Mitrione have fought once before, with Nelson scoring a knockout win over Mitrione at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale in 2012. It should be noted that Mitrione did enter that fight as a late replacement for an injured Shane Carwin.

While the heavyweight grand prix fighters were issued drug tests, it is unknown if any other fighters competing on the card were tested as well.

Bellator 194 takes place on Friday, February 16 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut with Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on the Paramount Network.
