The UFC has docked one of its champions for not wearing the proper Reebok apparel during a fight week activity.

Rafael dos Anjos, the UFC lightweight champion, was fined a "significant" amount for violating the promotion's Athlete Outfitting Policy at UFC on FOX 17 weigh-ins Dec. 18, sources told MMA Fighting.

Donald Cerrone and Nate Diaz, both of whom also fought at UFC on FOX 17 in Orlando, have been public about being fined by the UFC for violating the Outfitting Policy. Cerrone said Monday on The MMA Hour that he was penalized "quite a bit more" than $5,000 for wearing a piece of an American flag sewn onto his fight shorts. Diaz implied in a tweet Sunday night that he was fined for wearing jeans at weigh-ins.

The UFC has not spoken out on either situation. When reached by MMA Fighting, dos Anjos' manager Ali Abdel-Aziz declined to comment.

UFC senior vice president of global consumer products Tracey Bleczinski told MMAjunkie last week that three fighters from UFC on FOX 17 were fined for "serious" infractions of the Athlete Outfitting Policy. She didn't mention any names. Twelve others were warned since the uniform deal with Reebok went into place in July, Bleczinski said. Fighters and coaches are not allowed to wear apparel other than Reebok during fight week and in the Octagon, the policy stipulates.

Despite reports earlier this week, it appears the UFC 197 main event between Conor Mcgregor and Rafael dos Anjos is anything but official.

According to Globo, the UFC was supposed to announce the main and co-main event of the upcoming Pay-Per-View event in March during the Green Bay Packers vs. Washington Redskins halftime last Sunday, but were forced to delay it because McGregor is yet to sign the fight contract to compete against lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos.

The report also specifically mentioned that McGregor seemingly demanded more money from the promotion, which led to the delay in the announcement.
