    Sage Northcutt is riding a three-fight winning streak after rallying to knock out Zak Ottow in the UFC Boise co-main event. “Super” Sage has been promoted and paid as if he’s set to become one of the UFC’s next mega-stars, but now the next question for Northcutt is whether or not he’ll sign a new UFC contract.

    “[Last week’s Zak Ottow fight] was his last fight,” Urijah Faber said to ESPN, “and I really hope they re-sign him. He is the perfect ambassador for the sport.”

    Northcutt (11-2) has a UFC record of 6-2 and has been on the main card five times, including co-main event slots against Ottow and Mickey Gall. His last reported payout was $120,000 ($60,000 + $60,000 to win) for a decision victory vs. Michel Quinones at UFC Norfolk last November.

    The UFC does have an exclusive negotiation period after contracts expire, and those usually last up to 90 days. So while Northcutt’s current deal is up, he’s not free to sign with other promotions just yet.

    He probably gets a new contact before his 90 days are up.

    Sage is gonna be on a better deal than at least 8 of the guys in the top 10. I'll allow it.

    Good on the kid for riding it out and bargaining on a nice win. Hope he gets paid and TAM rounds out his skills.

    Just a matter of time before Faber feels threatened, starts lashing out at him in public interviews, then Sage joins TJ Dillashaw

    Super Snake Northcutt... nice ring to it

    They are starting to get more fighters in that fight at WW and LW. Plus the general skill level in that place will help tighten up his technique through drilling.
