Titan FC on Thursday announced plans to compensate fighters for its cancelled Dec. 18 event, alongside a schedule of live events for 2016.
The sudden cancellation of Titan FC 36 due to CEO Jeff Aronson being rushed into an unexpected surgery for undisclosed reasons immediately drew a cloud of uncertainty over the promotion, especially considering Titan has had to cancel other events in the past. Questions were immediately raised about whether or not the fighters scheduled for the event would be compensated, and whether or not the promotion could survive this latest casualty.
Aronson on Thursday released a statement taking responsibility for the situation, assuring his fighters that they would be compensated for the cancelled event.

“I take full responsibility for the cancellation of the fight scheduled for Dec. 18. As has been reported, I experienced and am still dealing with extreme complications related to surgery I underwent. Unfortunately, my medical condition made it very difficult to make the necessary arrangements for the fight to occur. I have been working with my team to put together a compensation plan for the fighters booked to compete on Titan FC 36,” stated Aronson.
“The athletes will be contacted within the next week with the details relating to their compensation as well as getting rebooked. They can expect their checks to be sent out on Jan. 15. I encourage everyone to ignore rumors and conspiracy theories that are floating around, as they are nothing more than unfounded rumors and conspiracy theories. To the fighters, fans, and the entire Titan team who work very hard to put on amazing fights, please accept my apology and commitment to make 2016, Titan’s greatest year yet!”
