SAGE NORTHCUTT KNOWS YOU WANT TO PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE
By Mike Bohn, rollingstone.com
Sage Northcutt is a 19-year-old UFC action figure who folds frying pans in half, studies petroleum engineering at Texas A&M for fun, avoids music with "cussing, curse words and inappropriate stuff" and is polite almost to the point of parody – during our 15-minute chat, he said "sir" or "thank you" 23 times.
Combine those courtesies with his All-American looks, undefeated record inside the Octagon and Hollywood marquee nickname ("Super Sage Northcutt") and you have all the makings of a genuine UFC megastar. And not surprisingly, there is no shortage of folks who'd like nothing more than to rip his head off – beginning with Bryan "Bam Bam" Barberena, who takes on Northcutt at Saturday's UFC on Fox 18 (8 p.m. ET).
