Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione were unable to compete against each other at UFC 175 after Struve had a near-fainting spell at the show, but they will both receive their pay regardless. Dana White revealed at the post-show presser that both fighters will receive their show money and win bonuses.
Struve had an elevated heart rate and nearly passed out; even though his condition went back to acceptable levels, the fight was cut as a safety precaution. It would have been Struve's first fight since 2013.
Struve was set to make $40,000 in show money plus $40,000 in win bonus money, while Mitrione was scheduled to make $30,000 to show and $30,000 for a win.
