Expectations are high when you reach the pinnacle of a professional sport and may not be a better example than 19-year-old Sage Northcutt, who was handpicked by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White on his new reality show "Looking for a Fight."
And it turns out ... the undefeated lightweight really can fight.
The third-youngest fighter to debut in UFC clobbered 13-fight veteran Francisco Trevino in his Octagon debut on the "Prelims" portion of the UFC 192 pay-per-view (PPV) card inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas tonight (Oct. 3, 2015) after the latter slipped throwing a high kick.
Northcutt, a native of Katy, Texas, blitzed Trevino and took him down handily, where he unloaded a barrage of elbows prompting referee Herb Dean to intervene (somewhat controversially).
Northcutt improves his overall mixed martial arts (MMA) record to 6-0, while Trevino falls to 12-2.
