Sad but true, Reebok payments for UFC 217

Broken record I know. Here are the typically lackluster Reebok “sponsorship” payouts for UFC 217. All three former champions made $40K and the new champs made $30K. The rest of the card is unforgivable. How do they justify paying fighters so little to prepare for the biggest nights of their combat sports lives? Broken record … Read more

Reebok Payouts are in and are still not good

MMA Junkie reported the Reebok Payouts for UFC 216 and I will say it again that they aren’t up to snuff. Demetrious Johnson pulled in $40K with Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee, and Ray Borg snagging $30k.

Reebok pays entire UFC on FOX 24 fighters just $200K total

UFC on FOX 24 aired on Saturday and saw Demetrious Johnson defeat Wilson Reis to tie Anderson Silva’s consecutive title defense record at ten. It was a decent card in terms of action, but the payouts by Reebok were less than that as usual. The main event fighters were taken care of, but a star … Read more
