There aren’t too many fighters who are as nice as Sage Northcutt. He’s usually complimentary to everyone and rarely projects a semblance of anger or annoyance. But when Mickey Gall called him out shortly after defeating CM Punk at UFC 203, the 20-year-old finally showed a few cracks in his nice guy façade.
Gall made fun of Northcutt’s spiky hair and called the young MMA prodigy “corny” and was more than happy to fight him next. Northcutt told “The MMA Hour” that he watched Gall’s expletive-laced rant and wasn’t impressed at all by Gall’s words or his performance.
“I think just him going in and fighting two guys that had no fights — I think they were both close to 40 years old, too — it’s almost like fighting someone’s dad that only trained very little for a fight,” Northcutt said. “It was definitely interesting if you think of it that way.”
