The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation is withholding the UFC 69 fighter payouts because of confidentiality concerns.

Does this mean they are not making the information available to the public? Doesn't exactly sound like they weren't paid. UFC would not risk this because there are other orgs out there that would pay you on the spot and they'd run the risk of losing all their talent. This would be big news if the fighters didn't get paid at all.

The fighters got paid. That article is about releasing the info to the public.
