On Monday, famous cutman Jacob “Stitch” Duran told Bloody Elbow that the Reebok deal may chase the cutmen to boxing.

“This is what I do full time. I also do boxing and the pay scale is a little different there,” Duran said. “The fighters pay you directly in boxing, where in MMA it’s the promoters that pay you to work the event instead of with the individual boxers. With boxers, especially when you’re working for the top dogs, you make more so the sponsorship money was nice to have [in MMA]. So I might have to start looking more at boxers again.”

This didn’t bode so well with the UFC brass and on Tuesday afternoon, “Stitch” tweeted out the following.

Losing Duran is a huge setback for fighters entering the Octagon. The legendary cutman has been involved with the UFC since 2001 and has worked on some of the UFC’s most popular fighters.
