One of the hardest parts about UFC 151 being cancelled were the undercard fighters who not only lost the chance to fight on a huge card, but they also lost a payday.

While many fighters in the UFC are pulling in the kind of dollars that prevent them from having to worry as much about competing 3 or 4 times a year just to stay afloat, that’s not the case for many of the undercard fighters being paid much less as they start out in their UFC careers.

So when UFC 151 became the ‘lost show’, the fighters on the undercard were then shifted and shuffled to all of the other upcoming cards later this year.

Some fighters like Charlie Brenneman and Kyle Noke were moved to the show just a few weeks later in Toronto at UFC 152, but many others like Eddie Yagin and Dennis Siver were pushed all the way back to UFC on Fox 5 in December.

Well, according to Dana White after UFC 151 had to cancelled, the promotion did stand by the fighters hurt the most financially by this and paid them for their time.

“What happened is some of the guys are getting booked right away, they’ll fight here soon, the guys who are fighting later we’re compensating them,” said White when speaking to UFC Tonight on Wednesday.

While White wasn’t specific in which fighters will get paid and which won’t, it’s fairly easy to recognize the competitors that were put on card such as UFC 152 on Sept 22 or UFC on FX 5 headed to Minnesota on Oct 5 as the ones rescheduled quickly enough to get the fighters paid on a somewhat regular timeline.

As for the fighters like Takeya Mizugaki and Jeff Hougland, who were pushed back to the UFC on Fuel TV 6 card in November, they will likely be the ones receiving some sort of pay for UFC 151 being cancelled.
