    Great karateka, awesome killer instinct, the ability to throw crazy kicks and perform athletic movements (back flip for Thompson, front flip for Northcutt). The UFC has an actual prodigy on their hands and doesn't seem to be interested in promoted him. WTF?

    Sage is 19 and a prospect Wonderboy is 32 and the finished article

    Wonderboy isn't what Sage was supposed to be no one thought Sage had that ability he's a kid lol

    Wonderboy is what Sage could one day become if he dedicates himself to this sport at a great camp

    Wonderboy is what Sage should aspire to be.

    why "was supposed to be" as if he is never going to fight or progress again? no one expected a 19 year old prospect to be as good as a top 5 veteran

    Wonderboy must already be out of his prime being 32 years old. That's how old Fedor, Cain, Shogun was when they lost.

    A youtuber comment said Sage is a bum version of Wonderboy. He or she is not wrong.

    It was the same "exposed" threads after Thompson lost to Brown, Sage also is going to improve.

    Wonderboy is 62-0 in kickboxing with 40 KOs and 13 years older than Sage.

    Can't really compare the two.

    Sage is a 19 year old kid prospect whose been fighting a year. I've been telling you guys this since before he lost. Why are you still building him up to be something else?
