Sean O’Malley recent revealed that he was paid just $3,000 after Reebok sold over $1 million of his merchandise.
Speaking with Brendan Schaub, O’Malley said: “I got royalties from Reebok. If I read it right — which I think I did, and I even sent it to my dad and I’m like, ‘Did I read this right?’ and he said yes, so unless we both can’t read — Reebok made over a million dollars on all my merch. I got like $3,000. I’m like, ‘What the f–k.”
Reebok soon responded, saying: “Royalties paid out on sales of co-branded UFC and Reebok merchandise are dictated by the contract between the individual fighter and the UFC.”
