Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the hurt business last Saturday night (Jan. 27, 2018) for UFC on FOX 27, which took place inside Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, and now it’s time to see who walked away with the biggest piece of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Derek Brunson — who was knocked out in the very first round by Ronaldo Souza — walked away with the heftiest sponsorship check from the sports apparel giant, banking $15,000. Meanwhile, “Jacare” took home $10,000, as did Erik Koch, Bobby Green, Dennis Bermudez and Godofredo Pepey.

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:

Derek Brunson: $15,000 Ronaldo Souza: $10,000

Andre Fili: $5,000 def. Dennis Bermudez: $10,000

Gregor Gillespie: $5,000 def. Jordan Rinaldi: $3,500

Drew Dober: $5,000 def. Frank Camacho: $3,500

Bobby Green: $10,000 def. Erik Koch: $10,000

Mirsad Bektic: $5,000 def. Godofredo Pepey: $10,000

Katlyn Chookagian: $5,000 def. Mara Romero Borella: $3,500

Randa Markos: $5,000 def. Juliana Lima: $5,000

Ji Yeon Kim: $3,500 def. Justine Kish: $5,000

Vinc Pichel: $5,000 def. Joaquim Silva: $5,000

Niko Price: $5,000 def. George Sullivan: $5,000

Cory Sandhagen: $3,500 def. Austin Arnett: $3,500

TOTAL $146,000

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.
