Update January 12 Cerrone has suggested that his fine was $10K or more.  It has also been confirmed that Rafael Dos Anjos was the second fighter to be  fined a “significant amount”for wearing an Evolve MMA t-shirt prior to weigh ins, and lastly that Nate Diaz was the third to be fined, his violation apparently being that he wore jeans to his weigh ins.

Update January 7, 2016Anton Tabuena reports that Donald Cerrone is one of the three sanctioned athletes with speculation that Nate Diaz and Rafael Dos Anjos are the other two.


MMAJunkie’s John Morgan reports that the UFC has taken action and that “three athletes who competed at December’s UFC on FOX 17 event will receive reductions on their scheduled payments after “knowingly and seriously” violating the policy“.

The names of the sanctioned fighters and the nature of their infractions have not been publicized nor have the amount of ‘payment reductions‘.

The UFC’s Athlete Outfitting Policy requires their fighters to wear approved gear during fight week.

These are the first reported infractions of the policy which have brought financial consequences.
