UFC lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos is the third fighter fined for breaching the Reebok contract.

Dos Anjos breached the contract on the weigh-ins ahead of his match at UFC on Fox 17 in Orlando last month. The Brazilian showed up in the T-shirt with Evolve MMA logo, the biggest Asian MMA brand with headquarters in Singapore where dos Anjos occasionally trains. On their official pages Evolve stated that dos Anjos is one of their instructors and members since 2009.

Ecxept dos Anjos, UFC also fined his latest opponent Donald Cerrone as well as Nate Diaz. Cerrone got fined for stitching a piece of his old muay thai shorts on his new Reebok shorts, while Diaz showed up at weigh-ins in jeans.

New UFC policy, which stepped into force in July, forbids the fighters to wear anything but Reebok gear in the Octagon and all other official activities related to the upcoming event.
