Reebok payouts for UFC on FOX 26: ‘Lawler vs Dos Anjos’ totals $157,500

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Winnipeg-Ponzinibbio vs Perry Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the hurt business last night (Sat., Dec. 16, 2017) for UFC on FOX 26 which took place inside MTS Bell Center in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and now it’s time to see who walked away with the biggest piece of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos took home the biggest Reebok sponsorship checks of the night after their five-round war that resulted in “RDA” getting a unanimous decision win over “Ruthless” (video highlights here). Ricardo Lamas scored the next highest check from the sports apparel giant in a losing effort to the tune of $15,000.

Elsewhere on the card, Mike Perry and Santiago Ponzinibbio collected $5,000 a piece. Let’s take a look at the rest of the Reebok payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Rafael dos Anjos: $20,000 def. Robbie Lawler: $20,000

Josh Emmett: $2,500 def. Ricardo Lamas: $15,000

Santiago Ponzinibbio: $5,000 def. Mike Perry: $5,000

Glover Teixeira: $10,000 def. Misha Cirkunov: $5,000

Jan Blachowicz: $5,000 def. Jared Cannonier: $5,000

Julian Marquez: $2,500 def. Darren Stewart: $2,500

Chad Laprise: $5,000 def. Galore Bofando: $2,500

Nordine Taleb: $5,000 def. Danny Roberts: $2,500

John Makdessi: $10,000 def. Abel Trujillo: $10,000

Alessio Di Chirico: $2,500 def. Oluwale Bamgbose: $2,500

Jordan Mein: $10,000 def. Erick Silva: $10,000

TOTAL: $157,500

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.
