    The 23 fight MW GOAT got a pay raise by Heebok just before his fight with Daniel Cormier, bumping his sponsorship pay from 15k, to a whopping 20k. To put in perspective, the former champ debuted back in 2006, winning the title in his sophomore bout, and has been fighting for 13 years for the UFC. 13 years of sacrifice and he finally made it to the final tier of 20k, just two fights prior to his fight with Israel Adesanya. He and Rani Yahya are getting paid the same in terms of sponsor.

    Israel Adesanya: $4,000

    def. Anderson Silva: $20,000

    Lando Vannata: $5,000

    def. Marcos Mariano: $3,500

    Ricky Simon: $3,500

    def. Rani Yahya: $20,000

    Montana De La Rosa: $3,500

    def. Nadia Kassem: $3,500

    Jim Crute: $3,500

    def. Sam Alvey: $15,000

    Devonte Smith: $3,500

    def. Dong Hyun Ma: $5,000

    Shane Young: $3,500

    def. Austin Arnett: $4,000

    Kai Kara-France: $3,500

    def. Raulian Paiva: $3,500

    Kyung Ho Kang: $5,000

    def. Teruto Ishihara: $5,000

    Jalin Turner: $3,500

    def. Callan Potter: $3,500

    Jonathan Martinez: $3,500

    def. Wuliji Buren: $3,500

    And the UFC's gunna confiscate his sweaty Reebok drawers and sell them for another $5k and not give him a dime. Lol.

    What was his salary for this bout, he also got 50,000 bonus too, not bad a cheeky 70,000 extra in your pay if you ask me.

    That's the sort of sponsorship money you give to some no name Olympian in a sport nobody gives two shits about.

    They don’t even pay him the 20-30% in royalties for everytime his fight kit gets purchased.

    Instead Reebok pays a check to this guy:

    In all seriousness....why THE FUCK IS REEBOK AN EXCLUSIVE SPONSOR TO THE FUCKING SPORT LOL


    What an absolute crock of shit.

    "Youre all independent contractors no union no 401k no benefits no insurance....BUT you're also employees with a non compete and cant have sponsorships outside of Reebok disagree with with company speak out on social issues disagree with the bosses shitty business ethics or generally do anything than take what youre given and do as youre told"

    The sheer amount of disclosed pay you LOSE at tax season as an independent contractor is ridiculous. If anyone really pressed the matter and had the funding for enough lawyers there's no way these contracts would hold up lol

    ”Anderson Silva Set to Make $250,000 from Burger King at UFC 148”

    That’s just for having BK logo in his shorts, in 2012.

    <36>

    Here is Dana White’s opinion on the matter:
    "I just don't know how the deal could be any better," White said. "Could there be a lot more money? Of course there could. Every body wants more money. That's never gonna change no matter what. If this deal with Reebok was $200 million it wouldn't enough money."
