How could, or why, the fake auto only show up on the rarest of the auto cards?
I noticed that only the red ink cards seem to be fake.

I'm wondering if someone at Topps forgot to tell Cowboy Cerrone to sign a certain number of stickers in red and panicked when they came back and forged them?

The forgeries are bad, he always signs his name "Cowboy Cerrone" and those are signed Donald Cowboy Cerrone and are nothing like his sig, which seem to be pretty consistent.

Seems the other red ink autos of low #'d cards/plates are all signed with a nickname in addition to the fighter's name. Do any of these look fake too, compared to the regular signatures?

I'm not at all experienced with spotting fake autos, but of the 3 you pointed out, the auto on the Dos Santos plate seems like it could be off. All of the autos I have seen of his have the 'D' in Dos defined pretty well, whereas this one isn't, and the 'Cigano' inscription doesn't really look like the ones on some of his other autos (only others I have seen never used a capital 'G').
