All the fighters who were scheduled to compete at UFC London will receive payment despite not fighting due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  

The event was set to take place at the O2 Arena in London, England on March 21. However, six days out from fight night coronavirus concerns, travel issues and government guidelines meant the card was scrapped.

UFC President Dana White tried to save the event by moving it to America but was ultimately forced to postpone the show in London and his following two events in Columbus and Portland.
