Fighters from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 73 event took home Reebok sponsorship pay totaling $107,500, the second lowest of the seven events to date.
UFC Fight Night 73 took place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and in the FOX Sports 1-televised headliner, Glover Teixeira (23-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC) scored a third-round submission victory over fellow light heavyweight Ovince Saint Preux (18-7 MMA, 6-2 UFC).
Saint Preux (who benefitted from his past fights in Strikeforce), Johnson and Camozzi each earned an event-high $10,000.

Under the new sponsorship program’s payout tiers, fighters are paid based on their total UFC bouts, as well as Zuffa-era WEC (January 2007 and later) and Zuffa-era Strikeforce (April 2011 and later) fights. Competitors 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.
