We derive the absorption cross section of a minimally coupled scalar in the Lifshitz black hole obtained from the new massive gravity. The absorption cross section reduces to the horizon area in the low-energy and massless limits of scalar propagation, indicating that the Lifshitz black hole also satisfies the universality of low-energy absorption cross section for black holes.
