According to a report by MMAjunkie.com, fighters set to compete on this Saturday’s now cancelled Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy event will be compensated. The decision to cancel the card was made after Showtime said they would not air it minus Gilbert Melendez.
Melendez, the Strikeforce lightweight champion, was expected to face Pat Healy. “El Nino” suffered an injury in training that forced him out.
The report failed to specify an exact amount to be paid to each fighter, but said they will receive their contracted “show” money.
Zuffa has yet to say anything official in regards to this report.
