Some fighters were thrilled to see Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Sage Northcutt get his comeuppance at the UFC on FOX 18 event last Saturday night (Jan. 30, 2016) inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey (video).
I'm not entirely sure why, as the "Super" 155-pound up-and-comer never said a bad word about anyone, so I guess the only explanation is this.
Woo!!! Tapped like a little Bitch & Tried to tel the Ref Different!! @sagenorthcutt VonFlu/Got You @bryan_barberena pic.twitter.com/xO4jNshOtq— Tony Ferguson (@TonyFergusonXT) January 31, 2016
That must be what he meant by "The Boogeyman."
Undefeated lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, who fights Ferguson at UFC on FOX 19 in April (more on that here), rushed to the aid of Northcutt and had some encouraging words, while also taking the time to give "El Cucuy" a piece of his mind.
"Talk shit about 19 year old, you're jealous of him because he makes more money than you," Nurmagomedov wrote on Twitter. "You are a bum."
We'll find out who gets the last word on April 16.
