MMA Junkie reported the UFC Beijing Reebok payouts that totaled a meager $114K for the entire card. The main event was Francis Ngannou vs Curtis Blaydes and each of those MAIN EVENT fighters got just $5K each from Reebok. I cannot name one decently skilled UFC fighter who wouldn’t privately tell you they are losing double that in real sponsorships they could normally round up. It’s shameful.
Here is the list of disclosed payouts for the event.
Francis Ngannou: $5,000 def. Curtis Blaydes: $5,000
Alistair Overeem: $15,000 def. Sergey Pavlovich: $3,500
