Reebok payouts for UFC 212: ‘Aldo vs. Holloway’ fight card totals $212,500

MMA: UFC 194-Aldo vs McGregor Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC machine returned to action last night (Sat., June 3, 2017) for UFC 212 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

In the main event of the evening, Max Holloway and Jose Aldo battled it out to decide the undisputed UFC featherweight champion. Holloway ultimately pulled ahead and was able to finish Aldo via TKO in the third round (highlights here). While “Blessed” walked away with the win and title belt, both fighters received $40,000 by Reebok for their efforts.

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.
