    I honestly have no idea so I have to ask.

    What is the difference for a fighter who has an exclusive deal with Reebok and a fighter who does not ?

    They make more money, they actually get different apparel than the walkout kit. If you look at McGregors Reebok page he has several different t shirts which will increase his ability to earn money through royalties.

    According to an article on MMAJunkie about the deal, the fighters make 20% royalties on their personalized products. Guys like McGregor are going to make quite a bit of money off their line with all the different products, while it's unlikely the fighters without the personalized deal will make much just from their single walkout kit.

    Haven't you seen some of the non-Power Ranger style t-shirts that a few of the fighters have? They have exclusive sponsorship deals with Reebok outside the UFC "kit" deal.

    You know, shit like this:

    He deserves it for getting screwed over for a title shot
     
  17. I'd like to see a list of fighters that declined this deal.

    Only one we know is Aldo as Venum offered him more money, according to Dana anyway. I don't see why a fighter would turn it down. More unique apparel that might actually sell equals royalties, plus the increased amount they get off the base contract.
