On Tuesday, news broke that veteran UFC cutman Jacob ‘Stitch’ Duran was let go from the promotion. Duran announced the news on his Twitter, saying that he was fired for the comments he mad about Reebok. Duran had expressed his opinion on the deal, pertaining to himself losing all of his sponsorship money and not getting compensated  for any of it, like the fighters. He also wasn’t a fan of the new vest that Reebok gave them, ones that the cutman had no input on.

Duran talked to MMAFighting about the situation and had this to say about UFC president Dana White:

“That’s another thing that pisses me off, that he didn’t have the balls to call me directly, he had some other guy call me. It’s not like I’m going to lack any type of work. It’s just that I really enjoyed working with the fighters and the people in the UFC. To get a nut shot by Dana in him not calling me and having the balls to call me, it just showed me the kind of characters that I was dealing with. Dana has definitely changed. Now it’s all about the economics. It used to be a fighter-friendly environment.”
