Despite a last-minute cancellation of their UFC 122 co-main event, Jorge Rivera and Alessio Sakara both received pay for the fight.

"Do we not take care of guys?" White asked MMAjunkie.com when questioned about their pay. "Jorge actually got both (his show money and win bonus)." Sakara was paid his show money, which remains unknown.

Rivera vs. Sakara was expected to precede the Yushin Okami vs. Nate Marquardt headliner, but as MMAjunkie.com first reported, Sakara was forced off the card just hours before he was set to enter the cage because of the illness.

Rivera vs. Sakara originally was slated for UFC 118 until injuries eventually forced both middleweights off the August card.

sebastienp - this is STRICKLY just public relations stuff to act as the good guys and pushing aside the issue that would have been brought up because fighters are underpaid. "these guys are not underpaid, we even pay their winning bonus if a pussy drops the fight the day before"



your right he should have just said fuck those guys you aint getting shit and kept it real son.

Can we agree that it's good that Jorge got his show and win?
