UFC Fight Island 4 took place last night (Saturday, October 3, 2020) inside the Flash Forum Arena located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and now it’s time to see which won the largest share of the Reebok sponsorship pie.
Long-time mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Carlos Condit won the sportswear outfitter’s biggest sponsorship check to the tune of $ 20,000 after defeating Court McGee in the ‘Prelim’ action (recap ). That’s more than the event headliners combined, as Holly Holm took home $ 10,000 while Irene Aldana took home $ 5,000.
The UFC’s deal with Reebok will not be renewed in 2021, as the promotion has locked in an exclusive deal with Venum to be its exclusive provider going forward.
But that’s not all, take a look at the rest of the payouts (via MMA Junkie):
Holly Holm: $ 10,000 def. Irene Aldana: $ 5,000
Carlos Felipe: $ 3,500 def. Yorgan de castro: 3 500 $
Germaine de Randamie: $ 5,000 def. Julianna Pena: 5 000 $
Kyler Phillips: $ 3,500 def. Cameron Else: 3 500 $
Dusko Todorovic: $ 3,500 def. Dequan Townsend: 4 000 $
Carlos Condit: 20 000 $ déf. Court McGee: 15 000 $
Charles Jourdain: $ 4,000 vs. Josh Culibao: $ 3,500
Nassourdine Imavov: $ 3,500 def. Jordan Williams: 3 500 $
Loma Lookboonmee: $ 3,500 def. Jinh Yu Frey: 3 500 $
Casey Kenney: $ 4000 def. Heili alateng: 3 500 $
Luigi Vendramini: $ 3,500 def. Jessin Ayari: 4 000 $
According to the payout structure (see), the more fights a fighter has racked up – combined with the UFC and the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce promotions – the more coins they receive to fill their combat sports piggy banks. And the less fights a fighter has under Endeavor … well, the less he or she gets.
According to the report, fighters will also receive royalties and payments of up to 20 to 30 percent of any UFC-related merchandise sold that bears his image. It’s a great way for Internet “morons” to help the cause.
