Longtime cutman Jacob ‘Stitch’ Duran was released by the UFC yesterday. Duran says it was because of his comments he made about Reebok, saying that he lost all of his sponsorship money and that they didn’t even work with the cutmen when developing their new vests.

Needless to say, the MMA world did not react kindly when the news hit. Fans called for boycotts and change, while fighters weren’t very pleased either. Check out what some of them had to say!
