UFC-Reebok Uniform Payout Figures Revealed
By FCF Staff
After some recent changes as to how UFC fighters will be compensated via the promotion’s uniform deal with Reebok, the payout figures have been disclosed.
Last month, it was announced that the sponsorship fees would no longer be determined by a fighter’s ranking, but instead, it would be based on their tenure (or if they’re a champion).
On Wednesday, UFC fighter Cody Gibson tweeted out the figures that were included in an email that was distributed to the UFC’s roster. The promotion has verified the figures with media outlets as well.
Fighters will also earn royalties from the sale of Reebok merchandise that features their brand / name. Athletes are forbidden, however, from wearing any other type of clothing or promoting other sponsors during fight week.
The figures Gibson tweeted out can be viewed below.
