Shocking news came out yesterday (July 21, 2015) that due to his comments made about the Reebok deal, the UFC had gone ahead and fired veteran cut man Jacob “Stitch” Duran. “Stitch” has been around for years, and has constantly been seen tending to banged up fighters in the Octagon.
That being said, many fighters have voiced negative opinions to the Reebok deal with no punishment, leading the mixed martial arts (MMA) community to go into an uproar over the sacking of Duran. It seems as if much of the feedback is negative backlash towards the UFC, and twitter has actually blown up.
Check out some of the reactions below:
