Reebok payouts for UFC on FOX 31: Charles Oliveira, Jim Miller bank big bucks in Milwaukee

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back at it again last Saturday night (Dec. 15, 2018) with the UFC on FOX 31: “Lee vs. Iaquinta 2” mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place inside Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Headlining the event was a Lightweight fight between Al Iaquinta and Kevin Lee, who took part in an entertaining five-round Lightweight fight (see it again here). For their efforts, both men took home $10,000 in sponsorship money. The biggest earners of the night, however, were Charles Oliveira and Jim Miller, both of whom banked $20,000 from the sports apparel giant.

But that’s not all! Take a look at the entire Reebok payouts (courtesy of MMA Junkie):

Al Iaquinta: $10,000 def. Kevin Lee: $10,000

Edson Barboza: $15,000 def. Dan Hooker: $10,000

Rob Font: $5,000 def. Sergio Pettis: $10,000

Charles Oliveira: $20,000 def. Jim Miller: $20,000

Zak Ottow: $5,000 def. Dwight Grant: $3,500

Drakkar Klose: $4,000 def. Bobby Green: $10,000

Joaquim Silva: $4,000 def. Jared Gordon: $4,000

Jack Hermansson: $5,000 def. Gerald Meerschaert: $5,000

Dan Ige: $3,500 def. Jordan Griffin: $3,500

Mike Rodriguez: $3,500 def. Adam Milstead: $4,000

Zak Cummings: $5,000 def. Trevor Smith: $10,000

Juan Adams: $3,500 def. Chris De La Rocha: $4,000

TOTAL: $177,500

According to the payout structure (see it), the more fights a fighter has accumulated — combined with UFC and the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce promotions — the more coin he or she gets to fill his or her combat sports piggy bank. And the less fights a fighter has under the ZUFFA banner ... well, the less he or she gets. 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 to 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.
