UFC Fight Night 98 went down last night (Sat., Nov. 5, 2016) inside Mexico Arena in Mexico City, Mexico and now it's time to see who went home with the largest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

The biggest sponsorship earner of the night was longtime veteran Diego Sanchez, who took home a $20,00 check from Reebok following his win over Marcin Held on the co-main event (see it). Rafael dos Anjos also scored a $20,000 payout from the sports apparel giant following his loss to Tony Ferguson in the headlining act.

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.
