Quote :
The UFC‘s new apparel deal with Reebok ruffled a lot of feathers, including those of longtime UFC cutman Jacob “Stitch” Duran, who spoke out about how the deal affected him and his peers.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Duran said that the UFC cut him loose for doing so.

Here's the topic I posted earlier with his comments in full.

http://www.mmastandard.net/t3189-ufc-reebok-deal-hitting-hard-on-the-pockets-of-pros-you-might-have-overlooked-the-cutmen#27697

I really don't see where he said anything "fire-able". He did discuss some details regarding private conversations with the UFC brass, but he didn't really say anything overly negative.
This is a pretty shitty move, IMO. Stitch seems like a really great guy who has nothing bad to say about anybody.

Plus, really good cutmen are not a dime a dozen.

Yeah, fuck all this shit! Stitch simply said that he would have to find a different way to make up that now unearned $. Fuck Reebok and fuck the UFC for kowtowing Reeboks horse shit agenda!

The fighters are the people really losing out here. Now they have to deal with sub-par cutmen who will not be able to do the same quality job as Stitch. Duran even said he wasn't super worried about it, he would just have to figure it out.

Yeah, I mean literally nothing he said could be perceived as blatantly negative.
I think the UFC is pissed that he's kind of outing them for being Reebok's bitch in all of this. They asked Reebok if the cutmen could be included in the deal, Reebok said no, and Dana and Co. just shrugged and went "Sorry guys, they said no!".
How many total cutmen are employed by the UFC? Maybe 10 or 12 at the most?? You're telling me Reebok couldn't compensate 12 more individuals in this deal? Bullshit.

From Reebok's twitter account, likely in relation to Stitch's UFC release:
