UFC on Fox 18 Reebok Payouts

January 31, 2016

The UFC announced its payouts from the Reebok sponsorship deal.  The apparel company paid out $137,500 for Saturday night’s event with UFC vets Anthony Johnson, Ryan Bader and Jake Ellenberger cashing in.

Via MMA Junkie:

Anthony Johnson: $15,000
def. Ryan Bader: $15,000

Ben Rothwell: $5,000
def. Josh Barnett: $5,000

Jimmie Rivera: $2,500
def. Iuri Alcantara: $10,000

Bryan Barberena: $2,500
def. Sage Northcutt: $2,500

Tarec Saffiedine: $5,000
def. Jake Ellenberger: $15,000

Diego Ferreira: $2,500
def. Olivier Aubin-Mercier: $2,500

Rafael Natal: $10,000
def. Kevin Casey: $2,500

Wilson Reis: $5,000

As we know, the Athlete Outfitting program pays fighters based on time served with Zuffa which would include WEC and Strikeforce when both entities were owned by the UFC.

Fighters with 1-5 fights: $2,500

Fighters with 6-10 fights: $5,000

Fighters with 11-15 fights: $10,000

Fighters with 16-20 fights: $15,000

Fighters with 21 fights or more: $20,000

Champions: $40,000

Title Challengers: $30,000

Payout Perspective:

Barnett receives only $5,000 despite his lengthy career and the fact he would likely garner much more than $5,000 in sponsorship money if there was no Reebok deal.  He has 9 UFC fights spanning back to 2000 but his time in Strikeforce was pre-Zuffa.  Similar to Barnett, it was Ben Rothwell’s 9th UFC fight despite being a long-term pro.  The $137,500 reflects the fact that most of the fighters on the card have less than 10 fights and there were no title fights making this a relatively inexpensive night for Reebok payouts.
