The card that took place in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic last weekend has resulted in the fighters not being paid, and the situations seems to be getting uglier by the minute.
Several former UFC fighters appeared on the card including Keith Jardine, Paul Buentello, Eliot Marshall and Kerry Schall. MMAWeekly.com has been able to confirm with at least 8 of the fighters on the card that while checks were handed out, all of them have bounced, and no one has been paid.
Coach Mike Winkeljohn, who is the other lead coach at Team Jackson/Winkeljohn in New Mexico, spoke about the problems with MMAWeekly Radio on Monday night.
“As far as I know none of the fighters got paid,” said Winkeljohn who worked with fighters like Keith Jardine and John Dodson on the card. “I believe they all got handed checks, but the checking account bounced those checks, it did not have any money in it, so a lot of fraud involved and it’s real upsetting. It’s a black eye to the sport. They promise these guys one thing and do the other.”
