Now that UFC 191 -- which went down last night (Sat., Sept. 5, 2015) from inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada-- is in the books, it's time to see who went home with the biggest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Naturally, Demetrious Johnson took home the biggest payday, as he earned a $40,000 Reebok check -- which is standard for all champions -- after he defeated John Dodson in the main event of the evening (highlights).

Dodson earned the second highest with a a cool $30,000 for his No. 1 contender's spot.

Outside of the championship fight, Frank Mir was the next highest earner, as he will cash a $20,000 check for having the most fights inside the Octagon of anyone on the card.

Let's take a look down the line and see the rest of the payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Demetrious Johnson: $40,000 def. John Dodson $30,000
Andrei Arlovski: $15,000 def. Frank Mir: $20,000
Anthony Johnson: $15,000 def. Jimi Manuwa: $5,000
Corey Anderson: $2,500 def. Jan Blachowicz: $2,500
Paige VanZant: $2,500 def Alex Chambers: $2,500
Ross Pearson: $15,000 def. Paul Felder: $2,500
John Lineker: $5,000 def. Francisco Rivera: $5,000
Raquel Pennington: $2,500 def. Jessica Andrade: $5,000
Tiago Trator: $2,500 def. Clay Collard: $2,500
Joe Riggs: $10,000 def. Ron Stallings: $2,500
Joaquim Silva: $2,500 def. Nazareno Malegarie: $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.
