Even headliner Paige VanZant took home $5,000 from he sports apparel giant, while Michelle Waterson banked a whopping $2,500 from Reebok after defeating "12 Gauge" in the main event of the evening (see their fight here).

Like Holly Holm against Miesha Tate earlier this year, VanZant refused to tap, instead losing consciousness before referee Big John McCarthy stopped it. "I feel incredible. The year-and-a-half (off) really allowed me to become comfortable in my skin and know who I am as a fighter, and know that this is where I belong, and I don't need to force anything".
