MMA: UFC Fight Night-Moscow-Arlovski vs Abdurakhimov Aleksander V. Chernykh-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the hurt business last Saturday night (Sept. 15, 2018) with UFC Fight Night 136, which went down in Moscow, Russia and featured a heavyweight showdown between Mark Hunt and Aleksei Oleinik. Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to see who went home with the biggest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

Leading the sponsorship payouts was Andrei Arlovski, who took home a $20,000 check from the sports apparel giant following his loss to Shamil Abdurakhimov ($5,000). In second place, Mark Hunt — who was choked out by Oleinik in the opening frame — took home $15,000.

But that’s not all, so take a look at the rest of the Reebok payouts (courtesy of MMA Junkie):

Mark Hunt: $15,000 Aleksei Oleinik: $5,000

Jan Blachowicz: $5,000 Nikita Krylov: $5,000

Andrei Arlovski: $20,000 Shamil Abdurakhimov: $5,000

Alexey Kunchenko: $3,500 Thiago Alves: $20,000

Khalid Murtazaliev: $3,500 C.B. Dollaway: $15,000

Petr Yan: $3,500 Jin Soo Son: $3,500

Rustam Khabilov: $10,000 Kajan Johnson: $5,000

Mairbek Taisumov: $5,000 Desmond Green: $4,000

Magomed Ankalaev: $3,500 Marcin Prachnio: $3,500

Adam Yandiev: $3,500 Jordan Johnson: $4,000

Ramazan Emeev: $3,500 Stefan Sekulic: $3,500

Merab Dvalishvili: $3,500 Terrion Ware: $4,000

TOTAL: $157,000

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.
