MMA: UFC 213-Pettis vs Miller Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to action yesterday (Sat., July 8, 2017) for UFC 213: “Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2,” which went down from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and now it’s time to see who went home with the biggest slice of Reebok sponsorship pie.

The biggest earner of the night were Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero who took home $30,000 from the sports apparel giant following their main event bout, while Jim Miller scored $20,000 in defeat after coming up short to Anthony Pettis, who took home $15,000.

But that’s not all, let’s see all of the remaining payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Robert Whittaker: $30,000 def. Yoel Romero: $30,000

Alistair Overeem: $10,000 def. Fabricio Werdum: $10,000

Curtis Blaydes: $2,500 def. Daniel Omielanczuk: $5,000

Anthony Pettis: $15,00 def. Jim Miller: $20,000

Rob Font: $2,500 def. Douglas Silva de Andrade: $2,500

Aleksei Oleinik: $2,500 def. Travis Browne: $15,000

Chad Laprise: $5,000 def. Brian Camozzi: $2,500

Thiago “Marreta” Santos: $10,000 def. Gerald Meerschaert: $2,500

Belal Muhammad: $2,500 def. Jordan Mein: $5,000

Cody Stamann: $2,500 def. Terrion Ware: $2,500

Trevin Giles: $2,500 def. James Bochnovic: $2,500

TOTAL: $182,500

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.
