The upcoming UFC lightweight Sage Northcutt may be a bit of an unknown commodity among casual UFC fans but he becomes rather well known for his cross training. Training with welterweight star Georges “Rush” St-Pierre and Rory “The Red King” MacDonald, Northcutt has certainly found himself in good company.
He also loves to go against a variety of opponents though, including some insanely swole bodybuilders it would seem. While in Shanghai in September for the 2017 FIBO Expo, he ran into the massive IFBB pro Blessing Awodibu. The pair jumped in the ring together and engaged in some light grappling and wrestling, and the professional fighter even gave some tips to the bodybuilder during the mini-sparring session.
Check out Northcutt’s Instagram and you will quickly realize that the kid has got some guts:
