UFC fighters take to social media to blast Reebok sponsorship pay

Published

The UFC went public today with the details of what their fighters will make under the exclusive clothing sponsorship with Reebok that will begin on July 6th of this year. Here’s the details on the tiered payment scale which was first tweeted out via screenshot (and then deleted) by UFC ‘Renegade’ Cody Gibson earlier today. It has since been confirmed by UFC officials.

1-5 bouts: $2,500

6-10 bouts: $5,000

11-15 bouts: $10,000

16-20 bouts: $15,000

21+ bouts: $20,000

Title Bout Challengers: $30,000

Champions: $40,000

This is what fighters will earn on a per fight basis. Keep in mind that PRIDE, WEC and Strikeforce bouts will be counted under this new scale. Fighters will also earn a percentage of the sales from t-shirts and other merchandise that celebrates their name and likeness.

Here are what some of the fighters currently under contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship had to say about their new clothing sponsorship pay deal on social media upon hearing the news earlier today.
