UFC Fighter Dan Hardy: 'TapouT Ain't TapouT Anymore'

You won't be seeing Dan Hardy in TapouT gear in the future.

UFC welterweight Dan Hardy, a long-time endorser of TapouT gear, has had a change of sponsor. According to Hardy's twitter account he's moving on to Tito OrtizPunishment Athletics.  Hardy accused TapouT of becoming "the Corporation".

TapouT was purchased by Authentic Brands Group last September.  

Here's what Hardy tweeted:
