MMA: UFC Fight Night-Sydney-Werdum vs Tybura Christopher Hyde-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action for UFC Fight Night 121: “Werdum vs Tybura,” which went down last Saturday night (Nov. 8, 2017) inside inside Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest Reebok sponsorship pie.

Fabricio Werdum was among the biggest winners, as he took home a $15,000 sponsorship check from Reebok after defeating Marcin Tybura in the headlining act. Tim Mean and Nik Lentz also took home $15,000 from the sports apparel giant thanks to their years spent competing inside the Octagon.

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

Fabricio Werdum: $15,000 def. Marcin Tybura: $2,500

Jessica-Rose Clark: $2,50 def. Bec Rawlings: $5,000

Belal Muhammad: $5,000 def. Tim Means: $15,000

Jake Matthews: $5,000 def. Bojan Velickovic: $5,000

Elias Theodorou: $5,000 def. Daniel Kelly: $5,000

Alex Volkanovski: $2,500 def. Shane Young: $2,500

Ryan Benoit: $5,000 def. Ashkan Mokhtarian: $2,500

Nik Lentz: $15,000 def. Will Brooks: $2,500

TOTAL: $122,500

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.
