Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President, Dana White, claims the world's most prominent martial arts promotion has released the 23-year striking sensation Sage Northcutt because the & # 39; Super & # 39; prospect was young and needed some work .
Northcutt (11-5) recently signed a contract with ONE Championship in Singapore and signed a heavy assignment for his debut fight at "Enter the Dragon" on Friday. Although Cosmo Alexandre, 37, is perhaps not a household name among fans of mixed martial arts (MMA), the 8-1 Brazilian has nearly 70 wins on the kickboxing circuit.
"Good Boy" only needed 29 seconds to waste American imports.
Northcutt is not the only former UFC hunter that is faltering on the international stage. Eddie Alvarez, a former lightweight champion, was set on fire by Timofey Nastyukhin in his ONE debut in March.
Northcutt will no doubt be back in action later this year, hopefully against an opponent a little more in line with his current skill level.
