Video: Sage Northcutt gets Claymation treatement after explosive UFC 192 debut

Sage Northcutt began his path to potential mixed martial arts (MMA) super stardom after knocking out Francisco Trevino in the very first minute of their Lightweight bout this past weekend (Sat., Oct. 3, 2015) at UFC 192 on Houston, Texas.

See it again here.

Just as impressive was his post-fight celebration, which saw the 19-year old nearly jump out of The Toyota Center after showing of his freakish athletic ability with his insane front and back flips. That was good enough to earn Sage the claymation treatment via the good folks at Claymated.

It's certainly a much better effort than this:

After making quick work of Trevino, expect Northcutt to step back into the Octagon sooner rather than later. In fact, he intends to turn up the training at the short-term expense of his education.

"Last semester, I was taking classes full time and I didn't have enough time to train MMA," Northcutt told "UFC Tonight." "This semester, I took off some of my classes and this was the first fight I truly got to train for. I might take a little time off from school to train. I'd be a totally different animal if I trained full time."

If that's the case, maybe the talented striker can reach Georges St-Pierre-level success in the future.

Perhaps even surpass it.
