Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action yesterday (Sat., May 28, 2017) for UFC Fight Night 109: ”Gustafsson vs. Teixeira” which went down inside Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest slice of Reebok sponsorship pie.

One of the biggest earners of the night was Alexander Gustafsson, who earned a $10,000 check from Reebok after defeating Glover Teixeira via knockout, who also took home $10,000 (see it).
Ben Saunders also walked away with $10,000 for his efforts in defeat, but the biggest Reebok earner of the night was Chris Camozzi, who took home an event high $15,000 from the sports apparel giant.
But that’s not all, let’s see all of the remaining payouts courtesy of Jed L. Goodman:

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.
