MMA Crossfire – Rookie sensation Northcutt meets Pfister at UFC Fight Night 80

Lightweight prodigy “Super” Sage Northcutt (6-0-0) and Cody “The Pfist” Pfister (12-4-1) will lock up at UFC Fight Night 80 December 10th in Los Angeles.

Northcutt made a statement in his UFC debut at UFC 192, dispatching Francisco Trevino in 57 seconds.

Pfister is coming off a unanimous decision win over Yosdenis Cedeno at UFC 189.

It will be interesting to see if the 19-year-old Northcutt can put away a more seasoned fighter like Pfister with the same dominance as Trevino. He recently made the move to train with Montreal’s Tristar Gym, home of former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
