    What exactly is included in Reebok bonus calculation? WEC after Zuffa buyout? Do pre-Zuffa UFC fights don’t count for old school guys like Belfort?

  2. IcyB August 20, 2018 at 2:12 am Reply

    Can you actually make a separate one w/ 20 or more “Zuffa” bouts. That way the MMA community can have a collective list of who has reached the top tier of the Reebok payout.

    That would be very interesting and helpful…would probably lead to many good articles being written.

  3. IcyB August 20, 2018 at 2:12 am Reply

    Damn that is a good questions. These are real questions that need to be asked and answered. But too many “jounalists” are worried about writing articles about what Conor McGregor had for breakfast.

    You should write an article that lists diferent tiers of a potential Reebock Bonus:

    Only UFC Fights
    Only Zuffa Bouts
    Only Zuffa Bouts including all UFC bouts (pre-zuffa)
    All Zuffa owned companies bouts (including pre-zuffa owned)

    I mean, UFC lists all Pride, Strikeforce, and other bouts on their web-site for fighter rankings…so why not include them, Who is actually getting screwed here?

    Could be an article freely cited by fighters in favor of unionization.

    I know I’d link it to Reddit and get it upvoted to the moon!

    Apparently WEC-Zuffa bouts count, as Faber got 20K in his retirement fight which puts him in over 20 fight tier, however it was only 16th UFC fight.

      Good research my man!

      Those are some honest points that I don’t think have ever been brought up before.

      So pre-zuffa UFC fights don’t count.

    With the recent wave of cuts (including Fitch), and the news that the UFC could cut as many as 100 fighters this year, this list could settle down quite a bit.

  17. ThonolansGhost August 19, 2018 at 8:38 pm Reply

    This list is going to require constant maintenance, I’d say that the cut-off line will be 19 fights before the end of the year.

    Belfort supposedly made $15K for his last fight, which would have been #25 UFC but 19 if you exclude the pre-Zuffa era. So apparently pre-Zuffa UFC fights don’t count.

    Yeah I can’t find the official info anywhere. Everything says “UFC fights” specifically – I’m guessing this includes pre-Zuffa which might have only made a difference for Belfort and Mir off the top of my head.

    But some of the older articles say “Strikeforce and WEC” fights included, I would assume only for Zuffa-promoted events. Will try to look at past bonuses of of former SF and WEC fights to figure it out.

    Pretty sure Pride and WFA don’t count as they never held an event under Zuffa banner.

    Who else did Zuffa buy out?
