MMA: UFC Fight Night-Sao Paulo-Maia vs Covington Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action for UFC Fight Night 119: “Brunson vs. Machida,” which went down yesterday (Oct. 28, 2017) inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest Reebok sponsorship pie.

Lyoto was the among the biggest sponsorship earners of the night, bringing in $20,000 from the sports apparel giant following his first round knockout loss to Derek Brunson, who raked in $15,000.

Jim Miller and Demian Maia also picked up $20,000 paydays from Reebok in defeat, while Colby Covington manages to walk away with a whopping $5,000 sponsorship check after defeating the aforementioned Maia.

Let’s see how all of the payouts break down courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Derek Brunson: $15,000 def. Lyoto Machida: $20,000

Colby Covington: $5,000 def. Demian Maia: $20,000

Pedro Munhoz: $5,000 def. Rob Font: $5,000

Francisco Trinaldo: $15,000 def. Jim Miller: $20,000

Thiago “Marreta” Santos: $10,000 def. Jack Hermansson: $2,500

John Lineker: $10,000 def. Marlon Vera: $5,000

Vicente Luque: $5,000 def. Niko Price: $2,500

Antonio Carlos Junior: $5,000 def. Jack Marshman: $2,500

Jared Gordon: $2,500 def. Hacran Dias: $5,000

Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos: $2,500 def. Max Griffin: $2,500

Deiveson Figueiredo: $2,500 def. Jarred Brooks: $2,500

Marcelo Golm: $2,500 def. Christian Colombo: $2,500

Total: $170,000

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.
