    Nailed it. Stitch probably got fired for some other reason(s), but seeing how MMA nerds were pissed about the Reebok deal, he decided to make it out like he was a martyr for his Reebok comments. Very shrewd, Stitch, very shrewd.

    Yeah, bullshit.

    "There are a variety of reasons he was let go, but none of which I can think of quick enough to make up right now."

    It had nothing to do with his Reebok comments.

    Granted, he got let go like a day after that article came out but it had absolutely nothing to do with that.

    "Unequivocally, his comments had nothing to do with him getting let go. I can't be more firm on that. There are a variety of reasons that he was let go, but nothing to do with his comments on Reebok," (basically he stole my sandwich from the fridge) Epstein said. "He's trying to paint this thing as, he said some stuff about Reebok and as a result, he was let go. It's just not true. That's not the reason why he was let go. I can't be more clear on that."[/I]

    Can't be more clear on how unclear he is :icon_lol:

    Damage control obviously

    It isn't like he got fired for being bad at his job

    Can someone explain to me what the big deal is about this guy getting fired? I personally don't give a shit, but obviously a lot of people do, why?

    lol...damage control when it really wasn't even needed. The thing was already out of minds, out of sight...now he has to come and lie about it in public. Dumb.

    Yeah the UFC has less than zero credibility at this point so I'll go ahead and believe Stitch

    Ehhhh...

    Seems strange. He's such a hot commodity in the combat sports world and has been for decades. He travels the world working with the absolute best fighters on the planet. He'll be okay without the UFC, but I am curious what would cause the UFC to let him go. Can we just get 1 of the "many reasons", please?

    I would love to see them come up with them

    Unless they had it on record him no showing or being late or something other....every fighter asked about the guy loves his work as a cut man
