Maia Leads UFC Singapore Reebok Pay

Demian Maia not only won against Ben Askren inside the Octagon on October 26th but the welterweight contender also won out due to the UFC’s deal with Reebok.

All 22 fighters who competed at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night Singapore event were required to wear the official Reebok fight kit per the UFC’s official promotional guidelines and were paid for it.

Maia leads the way by making $20,000 the most a fighter could get for a non-title fight due to his over 21 fights inside the Octagon.

Askren, who has only fought three times for the Endeavor owned organization made a paltry $3,500 for following the guidelines because of the structure of the payouts that are based on your length of service for any organization under the UFC umbrella (UFC, Strikeforce, or WEC).

Here’s the full list of payments (via MMA Junkie):
