Sage Northcutt will be fighting Mickey Gall in a welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night on December 17th in Sacramento, California.
Mickey says: Thank YOU 4 demanding this fight & making it happen. I will put on a violent performance of a lifetime
Despite being 4 years younger than Mickey at 20 years of age, Sage Northcutt has 9 fights compared to Mickey’s 3 MMA fights
And Mickey’s 2 UFC fights have been against fighters who were making their MMA debuts.
Sage should have an advantage in the stand up realm as he has been striking practically his entire life,
and Mckey, being a talented brown belt in BJJ, should hold an edge in the ground game.
Both fighters were discovered by the UFC through Dana White’s lookin for a fight show.
Industry insider TalkMMA says he heard from a source who spent about 15 mins with Conor McGregor and his girlfriend Dee,
that Conor is taking around a year off after UFC 205 because Dee is pregnant.
If Conor beats Eddie Alvarez that will put the UFC in a weird spot because he will be holding 2 belts and not be able to defend them for a year.
They could strip him of both belts, or have the winner of Khabib and Michael Johnson take on the winner of Dos Anjos and Tony Ferguson for an interim title.
The featherweight division is even more complicated because the interim champion Jose Aldo says he does not want to fight for the UFC anymore.
So both the official champion and interim champion could be out of action at 145. If Aldo decides to fight again he could take on Max Holloway for the title.
If Aldo decides to leave they could have the winner of Frankie Edgar vs Jeremy Stephens take on the winner of Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis, as Holloway and Pettis
have expressed interest in fighting one another.
