Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action yesterday (Sat., July 29, 2017) for UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones 2, which went down inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest slice of Reebok sponsorship pie.

Event headliners Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones came out with the biggest bank from Reebok, as “DC” walked away with $40,000, while Jones banked $30,000 from the sports apparel giant.

Elsewhere on the card, Woodley earned $40,000 as champion while Demian Maia, Tonya Evinger and Cris Cyborg all walked away with $30,000 check from Reebok.

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

Jon Jones: $30,000 def. Daniel Cormier: $40,000

Tyron Woodley: $40,000 def. Demian Maia: $30,000

Cristiane Justino: $30,000 def. Tonya Evinger: $30,000

Robbie Lawler: $20,000 def. Donald Cerrone: $20,000

Volkan Oezdemir: $2,500 def. Jimi Manuwa: $5,000

Ricardo Lamas: $15,000 def. Jason Knight: $5,000

Aljamain Sterling: $5,000 def. Renan Barao: $10,000

Brian Ortega: $2,500 def. Renato Moicano: $2,500

Calvin Kattar: $2,500 def. Andre Fili: $5,000

Alexandra Albu: $2,500 def. Kailin Curran: $5,000

Jarred Brooks: $2,500 def. Eric Shelton: $2,500

Drew Dober: $5,000 def. Josh Burkman: $15,000

TOTAL: $327,500

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.
