Fighters from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 113 event took home UFC Athlete Outfitting pay, a program that launched after the UFC’s deal with Reebok, totaling $90,000.
UFC Fight Night 115 took place at Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The card streamed on UFC Fight Pass.
Leading the way was headliner Stefan Struve (28-9 MMA, 12-7 UFC), who received $15,000 for his 19th UFC appearance, which was a third-round TKO loss to Alexander Volkov (29-6 MMA, 3-0 UFC).
The full UFC Fight Night 115 UFC Athlete Outfitting payouts included:
Under the UFC Athlete Outfitting program’s payout tiers, which appropriate the money generated by Reebok’s multi-year sponsorship with the UFC, fighters are paid based on their total number of UFC bouts, as well as Zuffa-era WEC fights (January 2007 and later) and Zuffa-era Strikeforce bouts (April 2011 and later). Fighters with 1-5 bouts receive $2,500 per appearance; 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.
In addition to experience-based pay, UFC fighters will receive in perpetuity royalty payments amounting to 20-30 percent of any UFC merchandise sold that bears their likeness, according to officials.

Year-to-date total: $3,865,000
2016 total: $7,138,000
