UFC 195 went down last night (Sat., Jan. 2, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and now it's time to see who went home with the biggest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.
Naturally, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler took home the biggest payday, cashing in with a $40,000 check, which is standard for all champions.
As for Carlos Condit -- who came up short in the championship main event -- he walked away with a $30,000 check from the sports apparel outfitter.

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. If you have a problem with the structure, take it up with UFC, not Reebok.
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.
