    I think Northcutt has elite potential but I agree with Florian that he has a lot to improve in BJJ.

    He needs to decide either focus completely on school or fight training and not both at the same time. And stop moving to different camps every month.

    Should take some time off to learn how to take a punch - I don't think he has a bad chin, he just doesn't like it. And grappling, too.

    His striking is good. Needs to work on the defense.

    If he wants to be legit, there is still so much to go but getting better at those things would make him close to it.

    Maybe instead of plagiarizing other peoples work, Kenny could go help him out.

    I'm 44 years old, out of shape relative to my prime, with virtually no striking experience, and I would have absolutely no fear stepping into the cage with "Super" Sage, just like anyone with even a modicum of grappling experience. Until he closes the gaping holes in his ground game, he'll keep getting tapped out.

    You mean his dad should stop pulling him out of camps every month just because he's afraid he'll lose control over Sage.

    The kid is 20 and has a lot of upside but maybe it's best he gets a chance to build up his skillset instead of being beat by most of the UFC roster.

    Sage getting hated on too much, he did a great job fighting out of that guillotine.

    Also did a good job escaping the armbar, & a few other bad positions, at UFC 200.

    Mickey is a brownbelt, no shame in getting choked by him. Especially the way Sage opened up Mickey's face first.

    Yes, that's easy to say from behind the computer monitor.

    I'd have absolutely no fear, personally, fighting all of the world's armies. At once.

    Sadly, an individual's delusion has nothing to do with a fighter's skill.

    Lol, gotta love interwebz gym warriors.

    Sage would fucking rape you.

    And then say "Thank you, sir."

    Bullseye. People seem to forget that Tristar is very grappling oriented. In fact, they just re-arranged the gym to give even more place for grappling practice. Sage was certainly getting handled on the mats, even if he could spar in the ring after. It's not hard to imagine Sage getting a call from Daddy and saying "there's not much striking here, all they do is roll around on dirty mats".

    Remember, Sage caught a nasty Staph infection at Tristar. Had to be hospitalized. When asked about it, Firas was very vague. The only thing he would say is that Sage is the only fighter to get Staph during that period.

    TS didn't post the whole quote.

    Kenny would go on to say that Sage Northcutt was "never my friend"
