Did you hear about Northcutt having to have an operation on his face after the cosmo fight? Who thought it was a good idea to put a young striker like him against such a seasoned vet? Does sage have any wrestling background he could have even fallen back on if he had managed to survive that punch?

8 FRACTURES.

Kinda. Sage did wrestle in high school, but from what I can gather he wasn’t really a standout wrestler (he placed at States tho). Plus Cosmo is a BJJ purple belt and we’ve seen Sage struggle with top position on the ground. I don’t really know what Cui and Chatri were thinking when they made this fight. Seemed like a recipe for disaster and now they’ve hurt their investment in a young, talented but deeply flawed fighter. Not like there isn’t a shortage of guys Sage could beat floating around at the bottom of their welterweight division either.
