Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) invaded the O2 Arena last Saturday (March 16, 2019) to stage UFC Fight Night 147. In the main event, Jorge Masvidal knocked out Darren Till in the headlining act to earn his first victory in two years (see it again here), while Leon Edwards scored his seventh straight win after narrowly edging out Gunnar Nelson in the co-main event.
“Gamebred” made out with the biggest sponsorship checks from Reebok to the tune of $15,000, while Till managed to rake in $5,000 for his efforts. Also, Nelson and Edwards each banked $10,000 from the sports apparel giant for their welterweight clash.

According to the payout structure (see it), the more fights a fighter has accumulated — combined with UFC and the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce promotions — the more coin he or she gets to fill his or her combat sports piggy bank.
And the less fights a fighter has under the Endeavor umbrella … well, the less he or she gets. According to the report, fighters will also receive royalty and payments up to 20 to 30 percent of any UFC-related merchandise sold that bears his or her likeness.
