4. The Hype Train Continues
The UFC’s newest golden boy, 19-year-old phenom “Super” Sage Northcutt, made his second Octagon performance last night with tons of hype and attention behind him.
Taking on Cody Pfister, Northcutt actually found himself in some trouble after he was taken down very early on in the fight. However, the rising Texas prospect would end the round in control and come out in the second looking for a finish.
Early on in the second frame, Northcutt was able to lock in a nasty fight ending choke which was followed by yet another acrobatic flip. While it’s clear that he may have to work on some parts of his game, “Super” Sage proved that he could fight through adversity and come out on top.
Let the hype train keep on rolling.
