Say it ain’t so, Mister Dana White! The news is that Super Sage Northcutt’s contract was up with the UFC and the mega-promotion let the young star go. Northcutt burst onto the scene with his pearly white teeth and shredded abs using words like, ‘please’ and thank you’. He was also kicking the crap out of people and fans fell in love with him and his frosted tips.
Now, we’ve learned that Sage will need to be ‘Super’ somewhere else.
Dana White called into UFC Unfiltered and told Matt Serra and Jim Norton the news.
“We let Sage go. Sage is young and Sage needs some work. Let him get some work in one of these other organizations and we will see where this kid ends up in a couple of years. Maybe we will pick him back up again.
His contract was up so we let him go.”
Northcutt is only 22 years old and can go elsewhere for more money and get a grip of experience under his belt. He can literally fight 15 times in the next 5 years and re-sign with the UFC when he’s 27. At that time, he still won’t have even hit his prime yet.
