UFC on Fox 17 Reebok Payouts

Brice Schroeder



Rafael dos Anjos dominated in his title bout on Saturday and closed out 2015 for the UFC with a bang.  With the next event not occurring until the next calendar year, it provides us with a good point to review the UFC’s total payouts for the first year of their Reebok deal.  The UFC has now paid out a total of $3,182,500 in total sponsorship money since the Reebok partnership was introduced in July.  The deal replaced all the athlete’s fight week sponsorships with a flat-rate check from the UFC in exchange for Reebok being the sole apparel brand used by all UFC athletes.

The fighter’s from UFC on Fox 17 took home a total of $245,000 from the UFC’s Athlete Outfitting Pay Program, the 2nd highest total of the year trailing only last weekend’s mega-event headlined by Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor and tying it with the Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm matchup.

After signing an exclusive apparel deal with Reebok in July, the UFC decided to distribute the sponsorship money to the athletes based on the number of fights within the Zuffa banner (UFC, Strikeforce, and WEC).  Fighters with 1-5 fights receive $2,500 per appearance, 6-10 fights receive $5,000, 11-15 fights earn $10,000, 16-20 fights earn $15,000, and 21 bouts or more earn $20,000.  All UFC champions (including interim champions) are paid $40,000 with title challengers making $30,000.  Fighters also receive 20%-30% of all merchandise sales with their likeness attached.

Only two fighters, Nick Diaz and Danny Castillo, qualified for the max non-champion payout.
