It is in Sage's best interest to give up as soon as he's in a bad spot.

    Dude is 20. He doesn't need to take any damage right now. He just needs experience.

    Once he reaches his prime and he's peaking, that's when he should lay more on the line and accepts that he will need to take more damage to get to that title.

    As for now, he's still climbing that hill. He's 20. He don't need to try to be Shogun or Edgar at this point.

    No oxygen to brain = lose brain cells at age 20. Keep those brain cells so he can use them later.

    Yeah but in the meantime if he goes 3 - 12 and gets cut, what's the point?

    It's in his best interest to learn some takedown defense.

    So what. He's gonna get cut and go down to a lesser organization and then eventually arrive back at the UFC again.

    Or the UFC needs star and they will feed him a weak opponent.

    Great advice for someone in a profession that deals with fighting your way out of adversity.

    Does it really get weaker than a purple belt with a couple of fights?

    He will be fine. Plenty of kids choke themselves for fun, it really isn't that bad and feels fuckin great.

    Sage does not have the determination it takes to go far he only has looks I guess but he has quit in 3 different fights now. Most fighters have to have their pulse stopped to get them to quit look at Paige she might have lost but she did not quit.

    What happens to those horses they use to lose all the time in training to give the others confidence?They don't become great race horses (except Seabiscuit lol).You can't have that mentality to give up,have you ever competed in a single sport in your life?Wtf haha,this is absurd.In training he's getting choked all the time,getting hit all the time,all damn day,but in a fight once every six months he should give up to save brain cells?Dumbest shit I heard all day.Plus his stock would go to shit,not a single bit of your thread makes sense.

    I don't get how you guys keep saying "look at paige, look at paige!!" She didn't even last a round. Northcutt is just as green, but at least he showed some progress and survived the first takedown and even got up after round1. Add to that Paige had the size and strength advantage fighting a naturally smaller opponent.

    Must be short term memory, Sage was in plenty of bad spots on the ground the fight before Gall and wiggled out. And to say "most" fighters have to have their pulse stopped is just patently false. Meisha Tate is as tough as nails, she's tapped plenty. Is she less tough than Holm because she passed out?

    Sage needs to go to Invicta for a bit and come back when he's a little more "seasoned".

    Sage needs to go back to the regional scene for a bit for his own good. Not a shit promotion but Titan or the Legacy/RFA combo. Where he'll fight other up and comers and faded guys while getting better. Right now he beats the absolute worst guys, gets a small step up then loses.
