Reebok Pay Report: UFC Fresno Fighters Don’t Bank Much For Saturday Night’s Fights

Fight fans flocked to the Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif. on Saturday night, Dec. 9, for an entertaining night of fights. That being said, it would appear that UFC Athlete Outfitting payouts for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s latest fight card are not about to set any record high numbers.

The world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion was in Fresno for UFC Fight Night 123. The exciting event featured a featherweight war in the night’s headliner, as Cub Swanson went toe-to-toe with Brian Ortega. Ortega ultimately earned a submission victory over his opponent in the second round.

With the exciting night of fights now in the books, the time has come to take a look at the UFC Athlete Outfitting payouts for UFC Fight Night 123.

As part of the UFC’s uniform deal with Reebok, the sports apparel company compensates fighters for their octagon performances. The total amount offered to each fighter is dictated by the number of performances the fighter has experienced under the UFC, Zuffa era of the WEC or the Zuffa era of Strikeforce. Cub Swanson took home the largest slice of the payouts, earning a total $20,000. All in all, the payouts totaled $117,500 for the event.
