Now that UFC 192 -- which went down last night (Sat., Oct. 3, 2015) from The Toyota Center -- is in the books, it's time to see who went home with the biggest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Headliners Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson each took home a $140,000 and $30,000 Reebok check, respectively, following their five-round war (video highlights here). That's in large part to the standard champion's and No. 1 contender's rate that is set in place.

In non-title fight action, Ryan Bader, Rashad Evans and Joseph Benavidez scored the next highest payouts, each taking home a $15,000 check.

Here's what the rest of the card earned (via MMA Junkie):

Daniel Cormier: $40,000 def. Alexander Gustafsson: $30,000
Tyron Woodley: $10,000 (Hendricks ruled medically ineligible)
Ryan Bader: $15,000 def. Rashad Evans: $15,000
Ruslan Magomedov: $2,500 def. Shawn Jordan: $10,000

Joseph Benavidez: $15,000def. Ali Bagautinov: $2,500
Julianna Pena: $2,500 def. Jessica Eye: $2,500
Yair Rodriguez: $2,500 def. Daniel Hooker: $2,500
Albert Tumenov: $2,500 def. Alan Jouban: $2,500
Adriano Martins: $2,500 def. Islam Makhachev: $2,500
Rose Namajunas: $2,500 def. Angela Hill: $2,500
Sage Northcutt: $2,500 def. Francisco Trevino: $2,500
Sergio Pettis: $5,000 def. Chris Cariaso: $10,000
Derrick Lewis: $5,000 def. Viktor Pesta: $2,500

TOTAL: $192,500

So how are payouts determined?

According to the revamped payout structure (see it), the more fights you have combined with UFC and the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce promotions, the more coin you have for your combat sports piggy bank.

And the less fights you have under the ZUFFA banner... well, the less you get.

According to the report, fighters will also receive royalty and payments up to 20-30 percent of any UFC-related merchandise sold that bears his or her likeness. That's a great way for the Internet "morons" to help the cause.
