John Dodson to receive portion of ‘show’ money for UFC-Belem after Pedro Munhoz misses weight

John Dodson refuses to fight overweight opponent at UFC BELEM : won’t get Show Money -John ‘the magician’ Dodson is not in a comfortable situation after his opponent missed weight and then he subsequently decided not to take the fight against Pedro Munhoz.

Dodson was scheduled to take on Pedro Munhoz tomorrow night. The bout was set to take the co-main event slot of UFC Belem. Munhoz missed weight by 5 pounds(140 pounds) while Dodson was one pound under the bantamweight limit for non-title fights at 135.

Munhoz was going to forfeit 20 percent of his show money to Dodson and 20 percent of his win bonus if he were to emerge victorious. Dodson decided not to take the fight due to the size disadvantage.

UFC officials confirmed to MMAJunkie.com that Dodson will not be getting show money. The promotion isn’t contractually obligated to award show money to an athlete in this situation. Not a very good situation for “The Magician’s” team.
