    I don't think so, but losing to that goofball Gall has got to sting

    No, UFC just need to keep feeding him cans like before. Give him fighters with no ground game.

    Interesting concept. Punk's stand up needs to be seen.

    Yes, because there's not a lot of guys in the UFC he's good enough to beat right now. He's 20 and still has upside but he needs to go away for a while and develop more before coming back to the big league.

    Instead of top dogs like Gall and Barbarena?

    They may try and milk another fight and cut their losses - Sage does not appear to be a fighter.

    Pretty hard to develop slowly now he's been in the spotlight so soon.

    Yes. He needs to take a drop in competition and hone his skills. At this rate he will be done by the time he's 25. It's what is best for him.

    Sage beat his previous opponent. What's the rationale to cut him?

    I think his problem is that he's a student. A part time fighter. He isn't learning fast enough to fight legit guys.

    No. Just give him some time off and for the love of fuck, force him to train his grappling, at gunpoint if you have to.

    I mean what else can they do. They can't just keep feeding him 1 contract guys.

    What was it this time Sage? Strep throat? Deep throat? Choke throat?

    It would be foolish to cut him at this point he's young. The kid needs to take some serious time off and refine his ground game.

    It's also crazy how he dosent seem stronger for all of those muscles he has
