Reebok payouts for UFC Argentina: Ricardo Lamas tops ‘Compliance’ payouts with $20k

Ricardo Lamas had a pretty big night in Buenos Aires.

Not only did he snap a two-fight losing streak, courtesy of his third-round technical knockout win over Darren Elkins (replay), “The Bully” took home an extra $20,000 just for showing up, thanks to the UFC’s Promotional Guidelines Compliance Program.

Also known as the Bellator-boosting Reebok sponsorship deal.

Coming in at No. 2 was welterweight veteran Neil Magny, who got torched by Santiago Ponzinibbio in the UFC Argentina main event (watch it). He’ll take him an extra $15,000, opposed to $10,000 for “Gente Boa.”

Here’s the $150,000 payout list, helpfully compiled by

Santiago Ponzinibbio: $10,000
def. Neil Magny: $15,000

Ricardo Lamas: $20,000

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 Endeavor banner ... well, the less you get. Fighters will also receive royalties and payments up to 20-30 percent of any UFC-related merchandise sold that bears their likenesses.
