One of the biggest earners of the night was Cub Swanson, who took home $20,000 from Reebok following his unanimous decision win over Artem Lobov (see it). Joe Lauzon also walked away with a $20,000 check from the sports apparel giant, while Diego Sanchez took home the same thanks to all of the years he’s put in with the promotion.

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.
