Poirier Leads Reebok Payouts For UFC On FOX 29

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the hurt business last weekend (Sat., April 14, 2018) with the UFC on FOX 29: “Poirier vs. Gaethje” mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza, which took place inside Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, and now it’s time to see who made off with the biggest slice of the sponsorship pie.

Dustin Poirier was one of the biggest earners of the night, as he took home $ 20,000 from Reebok after knocking out Justin Gaethje in the headlining bout (see it again here). For his efforts, “Highlight” banked $ 3,500 from the sports apparel giant.

Also securing $ 20,000 was Tim Boetsch, who was choked out in the very first round by Antonio Carlos Junior, who made out with $ 5,000 (recap). Let’s take a look at the rest of the Reebok payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Dustin Poirier: $ 20,000 def. Justin Gaethje: $ 3,500

Alex Oliveira: $ 10,000 def. Carlos Condit: $ 15,000

Israel Adesanya: $ 3,500 def. Marvin Vettori: $ 5,000

Luke Sanders: $ 5,000 def. Patrick Williams: $ 5,000

Total: $ 178,500

According to the 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.

Reebok payouts for UFC 202: ‘Diaz vs. McGregor 2′ totals $207,500

UFC 202 went down last night (Sat., Aug. 20, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and now it’s time to see who went home with the largest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

For complete UFC 202: “Diaz vs. McGregor 2″ results and play-by-play, click here.

The biggest earner of the night was Conor McGregor, who will take home an extra $ 40,000 sponsorship check from Reebok after his do-over against Diaz (see it here). It’s a HUGE jump from his previous payout, as he only received $ 5,000 for UFC 196 five months ago. And since Conor hasn’t been competing inside the Octagon enough to jump up to the biggest tier, it’s interesting to see his huge increase.

Then again, it could simply be that UFC decided to pay him the standard $ 40,000 that goes to a champion, despite the fact that it wasn’t a championship fight. Props to his agent/manager, I guess.

Check out the rest of the payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Conor McGregor: $ 40,000 def. Nate Diaz: $ 20,000
Anthony Johnson: $ 15,000 def. Glover Teixeira: $ 10,000
