Fighters are taking to Twitter to speak their minds about the specifics of the UFC/Reebok sponsorship deal. The payout for the fighters was restructured last week and details were released today about the pay-grade for different tier fighters.

Fighters who have between one and five fights within the octagon will make only $2,500 per fight under the new system.

Fighters with six to ten UFC bouts will make $5,000 while fighters with eleven to fifteen will make $10,000.

Veterans with 16 to 20 fights will earn $15,000 and those with twenty-one and higher will get $20,000 per bout. Champions and challengers are on a different pay structure. If you are challenging for the title, you will earn $30,000 and the champion will earn $40,000.
