UFC Rotterdam Reebok Payroll: Overeem Earns $5,000 For Main Event Effort

Reebok paid out a grand total of $117,500 to the fighters who participated on the debut UFC card in the Netherlands.  Andrei Arlovski and Stefan Struve collected the biggest checks of the weekend, each netting $15,000.

Alistair Overeem was able to score a huge knockout win in front of his home crowd this past Sunday.  His Reebok check however, is nothing worth celebrating.  He earned a measly $5,000 in sponsorship money, despite being one of the more popular fighters in the promotion.  One would assume this is barely a drop in a bucket compared to what he may have earned if allowed to pursue his own sponsorship opportunities.  This card comes on the heels of another star fighter, Vitor Belfort, comparing the Reebok deal to “living in slavery.”  It will be interesting to see how or if the UFC will respond to Belfort’s comments.

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card

Published

on

Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.

This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
