Sage Northcutt (7-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) is the UFC’s hottest prospect. There is huge hype surrounding this 19 year karate fighter as his style is so exciting, and he looks very well rounded.
He is good looking and has modeled professionally since he was a kid, and has dabbled in acting.
UFC President Dana White discovered Northcutt while scouting talent at a Legacy Fighting Championship a few months back.
Northcutt, 19, is the youngest active fighter on the UFC roster. He is 7-0 in MMA all with impressive finishes.
He is a multiple times world champion in Karate, has wrestled in High School, and trains now in BJJ.
Northcutt made his UFC debut back in October of 2015. He knocked out Francisco Trevino in just 57 seconds of the first round. He then defeated Cody Pfister at UFC Fight Night 80, by way of guillotine.
His next fight will be against Andrew Holbrook at UFC on FOX 18, on Jan. 30.
