Reebok Pay Report: With Fighter Raises Kicked In, UFC Payouts Still Low In St. Louis

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in St. Louis, Missouri on Sunday night, Jan. 14, for UFC Fight Night 124. With the exciting night of fights now in the books, the time has come to take a look at the Reebok pay report for the UFC’s latest event.

While fighter’s pay has circumstantially been raised for UFC outfitting payouts, it would appear that the payouts for UFC St. Louis were still low.

As part of the UFC’s uniform deal with Reebok, the sports apparel company compensates octagon competitors for their performances. The compensation is based on the total number of fights the competitor has completed under the UFC, the Zuffa era of the WEC and the Zuffa era of Strikeforce.

As a result, fighters with lengthy careers may see higher payouts then budding mixed martial artists. In an attempt to increase the overall fighter pay from the deal, the promotion recently added an eighth tier to their payment system.

As formerly reported, fighters with three or fewer performances under the promotions will receive $3,500 per fight. Fighters with four to five appearances will receive $5,000 per fight. The two categories were initially organized together and competitors only received $2,500 for their match ups.

With all of that in mind, a total of 18 fighters took home $5,000 or less from their UFC athlete outfitting payouts for UFC Fight Night 124. Check out the full list of payouts down below, as provided by MMA Junkie:
