PostSubject: UFC Ditching Media Driven Rankings to Determine Fighter Pay in Uniform Deal, Will Use Tenure Instead   Mon Apr 20, 2015 3:26 pm

Quote :
The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s decision to partner with Reebok for a new fighter uniform deal that will go into effect in July has garnered its share of supporters and haters alike.

The deal, in a nutshell, makes Reebok the sole apparel provider for the UFC and fighters will, as of July, be required to wear an official uniform manufactured the sports apparel maker. There will be some options for fighters to choose from, but the biggest shocker to most of them was that they would be unable to wear individually sponsored apparel into the Octagon and would no longer be allowed to drape a sponsor banner in their corner during introductions.

The UFC argues that the deal will actually benefit the fighters, as significant sponsorship deals have mostly dried up and are difficult to maintain. The Reebok deal is supposed to replace those individual sponsors with a more sustainable revenue stream, while giving the UFC a more mainstream, professional look akin to other major sports leagues.

The UFC-Reebok deal is six-year, $70 million agreement, according to SportsBusiness Journal (SBJ).

One of the more contentious parts of the deal was how the money would be divvied up amongst fighters. The initial plan was to use the media-generated official UFC rankings to identify tiers of fighters that would be compensated depending upon which tier they resided in.

In discussing the deal with fighters, manager, and cornermen, UFC officials told SBJ that idea didn’t go over so well, which led to a distinct change in that approach.

The UFC will now instead use a tiered system based on how many fights that an athlete has while competing for Zuffa; a much more objective standard than the highly subjective fighter rankings.

The new system will put fighters into categories of 1-5 fights, 6-10 fights, 11-15 fights, 16-20 fighters, and 21 or more fights. The number of bouts will not only include UFC bouts, but also World Extreme Cagefighting and Strikeforce bouts.

One notable exception to the tiered system is that champions and challengers will receive a bigger payout regardless of what tier they reside in.

Gleison Tibau, Josh Koscheck, and Frank Mir actually stand to make the most here, followed by Bisping. Diego, Guida, and Yves Edwards are sitting pretty, too!
