UFN 78 Reebok Sponsorship Pay – Prelim Fighter Earns Twice As Much As Headliner

With UFC Fight Night 78 officially in the books, it’s time to find out how much money fighters who competed on Saturday’s fight card earned via their new, mandatory Reebok sponsorship deals.

Below are the figures that the Reebok sponsorship deal paid out to fighters who competed on the UFN 78 card in Monterrey, Mexico on November 21, 2015.

With the unique nature of the Reebok deal, Scott Jorgensen, who fought in a preliminary bout, earned twice as much pay from his fight this past Saturday off of the Reebok deal than the actual main event winner, Neil Magny, and four times as much as the main event loser, Kelvin Gastelum.

Note: These are not the usual fighter salaries we post after each event, but instead the amount of money fighters earned strictly from the new Reebok sponsorship deal.
