However, if there is a bright side to the event being canned, it is that all the fighters who were scheduled to compete on the card will still get paid.
MMA Fighting, citing several fighters they allegedly spoke to, is reporting that the UFC is paying everybody who was supposed to compete at the event.
Thank to the @ufc for taking care of me for the London card situation, I’ve been all in from day 1 in this and it’s good to see that even in hard times like these the work im doing is being recognized.— Marvin Vettori (@MarvinVettori) April 1, 2020

Thank you @ufc @danawhite @Mickmaynard2
You can love him or hate him however the fact of the matter is he will always go above and beyond for his fighters. I couldn’t ask for a better manager to guide me through the good and the bad days! Thank you @graham_boylan for always being in all of our corners at @intensitifm ALSO one massive thank you to @ufceurope @ufc @danawhite @mickmaynard2 for doing right by their fighters --.
There is no word at this time as to whether or not the UFC will pay the fighters who were set to compete on the now canceled UFC Fight Night Columbus and UFC Fight Night Portland cards.
