Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action last night (Sat., May 13, 2017) for UFC: “Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2” which took place inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest slice of Reebok sponsorship pie.

One of the biggest earners of the night was Stipe Miocic, who earned a massive $40,000 check from Reebok after knocking out Junior dos Santos in the very first round (see it). Also, Joanna Jedrzejczyk took home the standard $40,000 sponsorship check issued to title holder after defeating Jessica Andrade (recap), who walked away with $30,000 from the sports apparel giant.

As for Eddie Alvarez, who felt a huge decrease, as he only took home $5,000 from Reebok, a dip of $35,000 less he received in his previous fight against Conor McGregor, his first fight as Lightweight champion.

But that’s not all, let’s see all of the remaining payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Stipe Miocic: $40,000 def. Junior Dos Santos: $30,000

Joanna Jedrzejczyk: $40,000 def. Jessica Andrade: $30,000

Demian Maia: $20,000 def. Jorge Masvidal: $15,000

TOTAL: $265,000

According to the revamped payout structure (see it), the more fights you have combined with UFC and the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce promotions, the more coin you have for your combat sports piggy bank.

And the less fights you have under the ZUFFA banner… well, the less you get. If you have a problem with the structure, take it up with UFC, not Reebok.

According to the report, fighters will also receive royalty and payments up to 20-30 percent of any UFC-related merchandise sold that bears his or her likeness. That’s a great way for the Internet “morons” to help the cause.
