MMA Junkie┬áreported 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. Fabricio Werdum only pulled in a dismal $10K and it is shameful. Werdum is a veteran who is a former UFC champion who could probably pull a number in excess of $100K sponsorship money on his own realistically. The salaries may be a little better, but these are inexcusable.
