    My guess he'll become another Cruickshank.

    Both have great stand up and are fun to watch but got nothing on the ground.
    Journeyman at best

    Too bad he couldn't become another Wonderboy

    No. Sage is a hype job. The worst hype job of all time.

    I literally can't think of a worse fighter whose gotten a bigger promotional push.

    Who can name one?

    Naw, unlike Sage he actually has solid MMA striking. Sage is all speed and nothing else.

    Cruickshank is actually fun to watch in striking battles. With Northcutt, I keep watching and wondering why he's such a big deal.

    He's not quite the same level in MMA as Cruickshank, not to say he couldn't get there or even surpass him, but he's simply not there yet.

    holy shit. Cruickshank was top 10 at one point as had a legit top 5 mustache right now. Sage is the 3rd worst fighter to step into the cage since zuffa took over.

    He got dropped by a 3-0 BJJ fighter. His striking is whack.
