Fighters, managers and media have all been questioning how the new Reebok sponsorship payout structure would be. It’s finally been revealed.
An email was sent out to each and every fighter under contract to the organization and after one fighter revealed the structure via Twitter, the promotion officially announced it via a conference call.
UFC announces Reebok sponsorship pay structure
UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, UFC President Dana White and UFC Chief Operating Officer Lawrence Epstein were all on the call and unveiled that fighters with 1 to 5 fights will receive $2,500, 6 to 10 fights will get $5,000, 11 to 15 fights will get $10,000, 16 to 20 fights will get $15,000 and 21 fights and above will get $20,000.
In addition to those numbers, title challengers will receive $30,000 and champions will receive $40,000.
On fight week, athletes will be kitted out in their very own Reebok gear and will also have branded merchandise. Along with the money above, UFC fighters will receive 20-30 percent of all branded merchandise sold.
Many fighters have stated that they have already lost money due to this Reebok deal, as former sponsors have already backed out of dealing with UFC fighters.
