Sage Northcutt has provided a positive update after suffering multiple facial fractures.
On May 17, Northcutt made his ONE Championship debut against Cosmo Alexandre. The bout only lasted 29 seconds and it did not go “Super” Sage’s way. Northcutt was knocked out cold in one punch and underwent a nine-hour surgery to fix eight fractures.

Prior to the Alexandre loss, Northcutt was riding a three-fight winning streak under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner. UFC president Dana White claimed the promotion chose not to re-sign Northcutt, but “Super” Sage denied the claim and said he was offered a bout with Demian Maia.
