Although Drakkar Klose didn’t get the opportunity to collect on a win or performance bonus at UFC Vegas 24, it’s being reported the lightweight will receive some compensation.

Klose was scheduled to fight Jeremy Stephens at the recent event. But, after he was shoved hard by Stephens during the weigh-in ceremonies, he was forced to withdraw with a concussion and a cervical sprain.

More recently, ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported that the UFC is going to pay Klose his show money, for the bout.

MMA Junkie is also reporting that a source has confirmed Klose will receive his show money and promotional compliance pay.

The 33-year-old Klose (11-2-1) hasn’t competed since March, 2020, when he was knocked out by Beneil Dariush.
