Northcutt made a statement in his UFC debut at UFC 192, dispatching Francisco Trevino in 57 seconds.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
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.
The addition of Northcutt and Pfister moves the Edgar Garica vs Sheldon Westcott fight to UFC 195.
The main event features female straw weights #6-ranked Paige Van Zant (6-1-0) takes on Scotland’s #8-ranked Joanne Calderwood (10-1-0).
