Reebok Outfitting Payout for UFC Fight Night 94: Uriah Hall nets $5,000

September 18, 2016 9:23 am by Tom Taylor

Last night, the UFC touched down in Hidalgo, Texas with an extremely exciting card, highlighted by some amazing first-round finishes.

At the time of this writing, the official fight purses of the 24 fighters on the card has not yet been disclosed. We do, however, know how much each fighter took home via the UFC’s Athlete Outfitting pay program – the result of the organization’s frequently criticized deal with sports apparel giant Reebok.

The card’s biggest Reebok checks went to Dustin Poirier, who was knocked out by Michael Johnson in the evening’s main event, and Evan Dunham, who defeated the debuting Rick Glenn on the main card. Under the UFC’s partnership with Reebok, fighters are paid based on the number of UFC bouts on their record, as well as their experience in Zuffa-era WEC (January 2007 and later) and Zuffa-era Strikeforce (April 2011 and later). Poirier and Dunham’s event-best paydays, then, can be attributed to their ample experience in Zuffa-owned promotions.

Here’s a full rundown of Hidalgo’s Reebok payout, which amounted to $125,000 in sum (via MMAJunkie.com).

Michael Johnson: $10,000
Dustin Poirier: $15,000

Derek Brunson: $10,000
Uriah Hall: $5,000

Evan Dunham: $15,000
Rick Glenn: $2,500

Roan Carneiro: $5,000
Kenny Robertson: $5,000

Islam Makhachev: $2,500
Chris Wade: $5,000

Chas Skelly: $5,000
Maximo Blanco: $5,000

Gabriel Benitez: $2,500
Sam Sicilia: $10,000

Belal Muhammad: $2,500
Augusto Montano: $2,500

Antonio Carlos Junior: $5,000
Leonardo Augusto Leleco: $2,500

Jose Quinonez: $2,500
Joey Gomez: $2,500

Randy Brown: $2,500
Erick Montano: $2,500

Alejandro Perez: $2,500
Albert Morales: $2,500

As MMAJunkie points out, the Reebok payout for this event took the program’s total payout past the 8 million dollar mark. While this looks like a lot at a glance, it’s worth noting that this amount has been shared among hundreds of fighters over the course of more than a year.

Are you a fan of the UFC’s deal with Reebok, or do you think fighters should be allowed to pursue their own sponsorship, as they are in Bellator? Sound off, PENN nation!
