Reebok payouts for UFC Norfolk: ‘Poirier vs Pettis’ total $245,000

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Norfolk-Poirier vs Pettis Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action for UFC Fight Night 120: “Poirier vs Pettis,” which went down last Saturday night (Nov. 1, 2017) inside inside Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest Reebok sponsorship pie.

With so many veterans competing at the Fox Sport 1 event, there were a total of seven fighters who took home $20,000 sponsorship checks from the sports apparel giant, including Dustin Poirier, who defeated Anthony Pettis in the headlining act (see it).

And Matt Brown, who knocked out Diego Sanchez — who also took home $20K — in the co-main event of the evening with a nasty standing elbow.

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

Dustin Poirier: $20,000 def. Anthony Pettis: $15,000

Matt Brown: $20,000 def. Diego Sanchez: $20,000

Andrei Arlovski: $20,000 def. Junior Albini: $2,500

Cezar Ferreira: $10,000 def. Nate Marquardt: $20,000

Raphael Assuncao: $15,000 def. Matthew Lopez: $2,500

Clay Guida: $20,000 def. Joe Lauzon: $20,000

Marlon Moraes: $2,500 def. John Dodson: $10,000

Tatiana Suarez: $2,500 def. Viviane Pereira: $2,500

Sage Northcutt: $5,000 def. Michel Quinones: $2,500

Nina Ansaroff: $2,500 def. Angela Hill: $5,000

Sean Strickland: $5,000 def. Court McGee: $10,000

Jake Collier: $5,000 def. Marcel Fortuna: $2,500

Karl Roberson: $2,500 def. Darren Stewart: $2,500

TOTAL: $245,000

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.
