Sage Northcutt

ONE Championship inks former UFC phenom Sage Northcutt

The exodus of former UFC fighters to Asia’s ONE Championship continues in late 2018 with the addition of Sage Northcutt.

It’s a fresh start for Northcutt, who started out in Texas at Legacy Fighting Championships (LFA) in 2014 and got his break on the Dana White’s Lookin’ for a Fight show.

Northcutt’s UFC contract ran out in July with a three fight win streak, but the company was unable to resign him. “We let Sage go,” White said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast. “Sage is young, and Sage needs some work. Let him get some work in some other organizations, and we will see where this kid ends up in a couple of years. Maybe we will pick him back up again.”

Terms were not disclosed.
