Edgar Leads UFC Reebok Payouts

Frankie Edgar caught a flight to South Korea and caught a beating in-exchange, but that doesn’t mean that the UFC legend didn’t get a good payday from it.

Per the payout report provided by MMAJunkie, Frankie Edgar scored $20,000 extra in his loss to the Korean Zombie on December 21st via UFC’s deal with Reebok, which limits all fighters from external sponsorship inside the Octagon.

The Korean Zombie made only $5,000 for the fight due to the program which benefits more tenured fighters with bigger checks for following the Athlete compliance rules set in-place following the Athlete Uniform ruleset.

The UFC Promotional Guidelines Compliance program’s payout tiers appropriates money generated by Reebok’s multi-year sponsorship with the UFC, fighters getting paid based on their total number of fights under the UFC/Zuffa Umbrella such as  WEC fights (January 2007 and later) and Zuffa-era Strikeforce bouts (April 2011 and later). Fighters with 1-3 bouts receive $3,500 per appearance; 4-5 bouts get $4,000; 6-10 bouts get $5,000; 11-15 bouts earn $10,000; 16-20 bouts pocket $15,000; and 21 bouts and more get $20,000. Additionally, champions earn $40,000 while title challengers get $30,000.
