According to Chad Bergmeier, Travis Fulton's manager on the UG:
We signed a contract for this fight 2 months ago ...I was told all the money to promote this event was gathered and ready to pay for the event (fighters included) before 1 ticket was sold ...Yesterday I find out otherwise...As soon as Fulton's plane lands we are told the show is now cancelled ...These guys could have fought on other shows this weekend ...They could have stayed home with their families. Anyways, today we get told that Rod will pay them next week ...Fulton gets a flight home in the morning to Iowa in hopes that this is made right next week ...Guys, pay these fighters what they were promised and do the right thing!

"Alabama Pride Event" sounds like a gay rights march.

This event was doomed from the second DMX pulled out because the organisers wouldn't fix his fight.......

It would have been Coolio vs. The guy DMX was scared of. I don't know why you'd be happy to see the rest of the fighters who probably busted their asses training get screwed out of fighting.

It is unfortunate for the fighters that the show got cancelled, but I am personally glad it did, a fight with Coolio or DMX would have been a step back for MMA, escpecially considering why DMX dropped out.
