    For the most part, If a fighter sees me in the ring they know it is for a good reason. Their have been times when some fighters have freaked out when they knew they where cut. My job is to let them know not to worry because I am there to take care of them.

    No doubt. If Stitch ever peruses the MMA discussions around here, I'm sure he'll notice the continuing prevalence of "[insert anyone's name] was never my friend" as an inside joke, based poking fun at Dana White and supporting Stitch, even all this time later.

    Yes, I started training in Tae-Kwon-Do when I was stationed in Thailand in 1974. The Koreans left and the new Thai instructions incorporated Thai Boxing to our training sessions. Also, trained in boxing when I got back home to improve my hands. Those bumps and bruises help me understand what a fighter is going through.

    After all those years of experience, do you prefer cornering Boxing or MMA fights? And why?

    The support I continue to receive world wide from the fans is unbelievable. It has been two years since the UFC let me go and life couldn't be any better. At the Premier for the movie Creed, Wesley Snipes comes up to me and I thought he was going to tell me what a good job I did in the movie. Instead the first thing that came out of his mouth was, "The UFC did you wrong"!

    Boxing definitely pays better, but I love working MMA shows. Invicta is awesome because these girls can fight and they give me just as much work as the guys.

    When a fight gets stopped by a cut on a fighter that you were working on, does that kind of feel like a loss on your record? :p

    Is there a fighter that just sticks out to you, or surprised you?

    It could be Toughness, a sense of humor, Cardio.... anything.

    Glad to hear you stayed positive after the bogus firing by UFC - you were right about Reebok and everyone knows it - you're good people

    Me and Wesley Snipes got your back!

    How has it been seeing women take part in cutman duties - has there been cut women in boxing in the past?

    Did Pride ever change the rules on Vasoline, that you know of?

    I read where you applied it to some fighters at Pride 32. But when they were in Japan they didn't want you guys to use it.

    Hi Stitch, what are the essential items that you bring with you for each fight?

    And do you do any post-fight maintenance work on fighters to tidy things up or is it strictly only during the fight?
