Cerrone tops UFC FN 83 Reebok payouts

February 22, 2016

MMA Junkie reports the pay from the UFC-Reebok Athlete Outfitting policy.  With his 30th fight for the company, Donald Cerrone led the Fight Night roster with $20,000, the most of any fighter Sunday night.

Via MMA Junkie:

Donald Cerrone: $20,000
def. Alex Oliveira: $2,500

Derek Brunson: $10,000
def. Roan Carneiro: $5,000

Dennis Bermudez: $10,000

Shamil Abdurakhimov: $2,500
def. Anthony Hamilton: $2,500

The total payout for UFC Fight Night 83 was $125,000.  This was the lowest payout for 2016.  Thus far, the Athlete Outfitting Program has paid out $810,000.  In 2015, it paid out $3,180,000 for an overall total of $3,990,000.

Payout Perspective:

Based on a look at the Fight Night roster, most of the fighters have 5 fights or less for the company.  This makes some sense since Fight Night events are geared more to the younger, less-experienced fighters on the UFC roster.  Cerrone, of course, is a savvy veteran with a ton of fights under his belt.  Unfortunately for him, with the exception of a title challenge or winning a title, he has topped out for Reebok payouts.

    I noticed Cerrone had the Monster energy drink logo on his shorts so between that and his Budweiser sponsors hopefully he’s making more then just a 20k..an interesting side note is that me n a friend were very fortunate to have the opportunity to train with Cerrone and help him n his camp get ready for his first fight in the UFC against Paul Kelly… we mostly helped with the running drills and conditioning and of course all the fighters did the sparring and cage work donald was very cool and very generous with his time with us and he actually gave me a detailed breakdown of what the average training camp cost and while I knew they were expensive I had no idea of all the hidden expenses that go into a camp for instance he told me they spend an average of $400 per month on laundry soap cuz four 25 training partners would change their training gear 3 to 4 times a day and that would average 5 to 6 loads a day.. granted that was because he has a bunch of guys at his ranch

    My point being is that it would be interesting to have one of the staff writers interview a handful of fighters and give a breakdown of what training camps really cost it would also be interesting to know what medical bills doctors appointments etc fighters are and are not responsible for from the ufc insurance plan n what exactly that covers

    Notably, Will Brooks is screaming for a UFC contract right now due to low pay/sponsorship money with Bellator.

Got something to say?
