Reebok payouts for UFC Fight Night 73 reportedly total $107,500 for 'Teixeira vs. Saint Preux'

It's time to see who got paid.

Now that UFC Fight Night 73 -- which went down last night (Sat., Aug. 8, 2015) from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee -- is in the books, it's time to see who went home with the biggest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Michael Johnson, Chris Camozzi and Ovince Saint Preux took home the biggest paydays, as each earned $10,000.

After choking out Saint Preux in the main event of the evening, former 205-pound title contender, Glover Teixeira, went home with only a $5,000 sponsorship check from the sports apparel giant.

When you look down the line and see the rest of the payouts, it's easy to see why the MMA community hasn't exactly embraced the UFC/Reebok deal with open arms.

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

Glover Teixeira: ($5,000) def. Ovince Saint Preux: ($10,000)
Beneil Dariush: ($5,000) def. Michael Johnson: ($10,000)
Derek Brunson: ($5,000) def. Sam Alvey: ($2,500)
Jared Rosholt: ($5,000) def. Timothy Johnson: ($2,500)
Amanda Nunes: ($5,000) def. Sara McMann: ($2,500)
Ray Borg: ($2,500) def. Geane Herrera: ($2,500)
Uriah Hall: ($5,000) def. Oluwale Bamgbose: ($2,500)
Chris Camozzi: ($10,000) def. Tom Watson: ($5,000)
Dustin Ortiz: ($5,000) def. Willie Gates: ($2,500)
Frankie Saenz: ($2,500) def. Sirwan Kakai: ($2,500)
Jonathan Wilson: ($2,500) def. Chris Dempsey: ($2,500)
Marlon Vera: ($2,500) def. Roman Salazar: ($2,500)
Scott Holtzman: ($2,500) def. Anthony Christodoulou: ($2,500)

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.
