    You can train the jiu jitsu, so him is not being caught so often in the ground, okay, you can train how to mantain the fight standing.

    But... weak chin? really weak chin ?

    Doesnt matter how good your striking defense is, you ALWAYS gonna be tagged with those tiny MMA gloves.

    Sorry, but Northcutt has no future as a champion, contender. FACT.

    You can't train the chin. FACT:

    He doesnt gonna fight again, he is going to series, movies, bodybuilding, whatever. (its okay, he is a good kid, but MMA is not for him)

    His grappling is his biggest deficiency right now. It hasn't looked good at all in any of his UFC fights. He should have stuck with Tristar, a real camp.

    EXACTLY !!!

    How much does your chin improve trought the years... ??

    Exactly again, NOTHING. It only decreases.

    Thats why he has no business in MMA, because of chin, you can't train chin, and chin doesnt "mature" or improve with age.

    Doesnt matter how much your striking defense improves, in MMA you always get tagged because of tiny gloves,

    His striking and grappling separately seem ok. It's the combination and transitioning between the two that he struggles with. Look at Holloway at 21 compared to now, he will get better. He needs better stylistic fights though.

  13. is he training full time yet?

    Needs to before the losses everything.

    Take a year off and train full-time. Focus on your schooling when you retire.

    REIGNING DEFENDING - UNDISPUTED AND UNDEFEATED

    I'm sorry, When has Mr. Sage been Ko'd??

    The heart thing is true however, that choke wasn't even all the way there.

    I think Northcutt got hit on the temple, so not sure if that's a chin thing.

    That said, the moment he got knocked down, you could see the panic in his eyes. No heart is right.

    He's a kid that has faced very little adversity in life...a bit sheltered and protected. But getting thrown into the fire, as he has now, tends to forge the strongest iron. He'll be back....better than ever. Sage Bless.
