UFC Liverpool Pay Report: Darren Till, 18 More Fighters Make $5k Or Less In Payouts

Over the weekend, fight fans were privileged to a rare daytime Sunday UFC event, from Liverpool, England.

It was a great change of pace from the usual late night Saturday events.

In the day’s main event, Darren Till kept his unbeaten record intact with a controversial decision win over Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.

11 fights in total took place on Sunday, and out of the 22 athletes that participated in the event, only four took home more than $5000.00 in UFC sponsorship payouts.

UFC fighters used to be able to count on a second income from sponsors. In the older days of the UFC, fight shorts and cage banners were valuable real estate for the UFC athletes.

The UFC would then introduce an official apparel partnership with Reebok, impacting all fighters on the roster.

It’s because of this, that these payouts remain largely low.

Here’s the full list of payouts: (Per MMAJunkie)
