Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the hurt business last night (Sat., Jan. 20, 2018) for UFC 220: “Miocic vs Ngannou”, which took place inside TD garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, and now it’s time to see who walked away with the biggest piece of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier were two of the biggest earners of the night, as they each walked away with an extra $40,000 thanks to the sports apparel giants payouts to current champions.

Challengers Francis Ngannou and Volkan Oezdemir took home $30,000 from Reebok after coming up short in their bids to win the 265-pound and 205-pound titles, respectively.

But that’s not all, let’s take a look at the rest of the Reebok payouts — which recently witnessed an overhaul in pay structure — courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Stipe Miocic: $40,000 def. Francis Ngannou: $30,000

Daniel Cormier: $40,000 def. Volkan Oezdemir: $30,000

Calvin Kattar: $3,500 def. Shane Burgos: $5,000

Gian Villante: $15,000 def. Francimar Barroso: $5,000

Rob Font: $5,000 def. Thomas Almeida: $5,000

Kyle Bochniak: $5,000 def. Brandon Davis: $3,500

Abdul Razak Alhassan: $5,000 def. Sabah Homasi: $3,500

Dustin Ortiz: $10,000 def. Alexandre Pantoja: $3,500

Julio Arce: $3,500 def. Dan Ige: $3,500

Enrique Barzola: $5,000 def. Matt Bessette: $3,500

Islam Makhachev: $5,000 def. Gleison Tibau: $20,000

TOTAL” $249,500

According to the 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.
