UFC Reebok

The UFC 221 Reebok payouts have been released and one fighter has missed out on an extra $20,000.

UFC 221’s main event featured a middleweight clash between Yoel Romero and Luke Rockhold. Romero earned the victory via third-round knockout and took home $10,000 for wearing the Reebok gear. Rockhold nabbed $30,000. The pay tier for championship bouts is $30,000. Because Romero missed weight, he became ineligible for that tier.

In the co-main event, Curtis Blaydes took on Mark Hunt. After a shaky start, Blaydes was able to regroup and dominated the fight on his way to a unanimous decision win. He received $5,000 in Reebok money, while his opponent nabbed $15,000.

Ross Pearson nabbed more Reebok money than Hunt and the remaining main card fighters. In the prelims, he earned a unanimous decision win over Mizuto Hirota. Pearson snagged $20,000, while Hirota took in $5,000.
