    He's young. Once he gets his ground game sorted out he can make waves. He's honestly too green and the blueprint is crystal clear on how to beat him.

    He's been practicing martial arts his whole life and looks like he has no idea what he's doing. Even his standup.

    Sage needs to change now that he's still young.Move to a better camp like ATT or Jacksons

    Dudes an adult now. He needs to dump his dad and get a real camp if this is his career.

    That was one of the funniest fights I've ever seen. I like Sage, too.

    Both guys were exposed a bit, imo. Mickey Gall's stock has definitely gone up, but he is a fighter with clear flaws. I don't expect him to last 3 rounds with any top 15 guy any time soon.

    I thought he fight very well, until he got clipped. Shit happens in MMA, everyone loses

    He looks like the guy who studies everything but can't execute it

    Does he have a camp? Following him on social media shows him traveling all of North America training with everyone he can.

    I think that kind of backfired on him tonight with Zahabi cornering against him.

    I always laugh at this type of comment. How is changing camps going to make you a better fighter? All camps train pretty much the same way. This is an individual sport and if you fight badly it's a reflection on yourself not your trainers (these are professional athletes, they know how to train)

    Yes, I watched the fight. He was visibly annoyed with Gall, though.
    Gall might've touched one of Sage's cyborg chips.

    As an ugly man I get a special type of satisfaction seeing pretty boy Sage get exposed so that the industry realize he gets such a big push just because of his looks, but doesn't have much more going on beside that.

    You're probably right, and the time he spends traveling would be better spent training.

    Eh, BJ and Rory were sheltered and privileged, but they had the natural ability to fight and adapt.

    Sage just doesn't have it. Much like 90% of street toughs aren't cut out to be fighters

    Stop white knighting the kid. Sage knows to hand fight when defending a RNC...which he doesn't, why? Because he accepts his defeat and takes the easier way out. He doesn't have the heart for this game, just deal with it...you can't teach "heart". Now Wonderboy, there's a karate guy with heart.

    I don't think mma is his first priority. He's going to school for engineering.

    Yeah he was actually looking good to me but behind the ear. That's the sweet spot.
