UFC welterweights Matt Riddle (5-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Luis Ramos (19-7 MMA, 0-1 UFC) lost the opportunity to compete at UFC 141, but they did not lose out on a paycheck.

In fact, according to UFC officials, both fighters went home with not only their "show" money but also with their win bonuses, as well.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned of the promotion's decision from sources within the organization.

Riddle vs. Ramos was scheduled to be the second fight of the Friday night's fight card at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena and was slated to stream on Facebook. However, Riddle was ill throughout the day of the fight and was ultimately unable to gain clearance to compete.

See, the UFC has a heart. I'm surprised about the win bonus though.

I thought they were only getting their show pay. Interesting.

thats interesting to me. I'd have paid them their show money and thats it to prevent people from trying to take advantage of Zuffa.

If you think you're going to lose your fight its financially better for you to pull out than to fight and lose under this format.

I get the feeling this is strictly a holiday deal.

Yeah, its good of the UFC to pay them, seeing how they got ill so close to their fight. They have families to feed, well done Zuffa
