"I need to step up and own that because I wasn't a victim. It's not like [UFC President] Dana [White] and the UFC and Reebok – I wasn't a victim. I knew fair well that I was not allowed to wear that, and I knew I was going to get fined if I did. So I need to put that out there and say that I willingly knew I was [going to get fined], I just didn't know it was going to be that much. You know what I'm saying? It was a lot. I figured a couple grand, sure, I'll take the fine. It's worth it for me. So I guess when I tweeted it out and said that Reebok took my money, it made them look guilty like I was a victim and it was their fault, when really, I knew before I did it, right? You get what I'm saying? I did it anyway, and then I got fined, and then I made it seem like, 'Reebok's f***ing me.' And really, I f***ed myself."

-Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone takes responsibility for his fine from Reebok in an interview with MMAJunkie.com.

Penick's Analysis: There's obviously a personal responsibility aspect to it when he knew he was going to face a fine, but with no clear outlines or fines set in advance there's still an issue on the UFC's end. By making it all arbitrary there's no way for a fighter to know exactly what they're risking by not complying with something forced upon them to begin with. Still, Cerrone knew exactly what he was doing, and it's why he's switched things up for his next fight in order to avoid future fines and ramifications.
