Sage Northcutt turns down Mickey Gall fight, posts photos of jacked physique instead

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Sage Northcutt was called out by fellow 170-pound rising star Mickey Gall, who demanded a "Super" showdown just minutes after planishing CM Punk at the UFC 203 pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend in Cleveland, Ohio.

Yeah, no.

"Sage would never be able to be ready for that one because he hasn't been able to train due to several things," Northcutt's dad told Jonathan Shrager. "Sage has a staph infection; the UFC's trying to find an appropriate infectious disease doctor to look at it this week."

About that...

Northcutt was busy on social media last night (Sept. 13, 2016) to show off his jacked physique, while also promoting his sponsor. Not that I'm an expert on infectious disease, but something about working out at the gym with Staph infection gives me the willies.

Take a look:

A few days before that, he was out tear-assing through the mud in one of those little dirt buggies.

Clearly this kid needs a doctor, STAT!
