Sage Northcutt training at Team Alpha Male expected to become ‘permanent thing’ after UFC 214

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Northcutt vs Gall Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight adonis, Sage Northcutt, is withdrawing from college and enrolling in Team Alpha Male (TAM).

Just as soon as he’s done with his next fight.

That’s according to TAM head cheese Urijah Faber, who gave the “Super” prospect a few good looks in recent days as the 21-year-old Northcutt gears up for his return to the 155-pound division.

“He’s got a full camp, so I’m not sure how much he’s going to be out here for his camp, but it’s probably going to be a more permanent thing for him moving forward,” Faber told The MMA Hour. “But as of right now, he’s kind of splitting time, and man, what a fast learner and what a positive guy. He’s fun to be around.”

Let’s hope Tyron Woodley isn’t the jealous type.

Northcutt (8-2) returns against Peruvian upstart Claudio Puelles at the upcoming UFC 214: “Cormier vs. Jones 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for July 29, 2017 inside Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
