News is surfacing that “Super” Sage Northcutt is going to fight on the upcoming blockbuster UFC 200 card in July against the unheralded Enrique Marin. The question on everyone’s mind is, “What is he going to do to shore up his jiu-jitsu game?”
Following his shocking tap at the UFC on Fox: Johnson vs Bader card in January to a barely there arm-triangle choke at the hands of Brian (sp?) Barberena, cries of overrated and overpaid were levied at the 20-year old doe-faced man child with the abs of titanium. Charges of favouritism by the UFC and preferential matchmaking have dogged his time with the promotion, but the Barberena loss highlighted how far he really has to go to reach the heights of the sport, especially in the ultra-competitive light and welterweight divisions.
