Sage Northcutt sends special birthday wish to Christy Teigen


Sage Northcutt is busy in Texas these days preparing for his fight on Dec. 17 in Sacramento against Mickey Gall. But the welterweight took time out of his schedule this week to put out a challenge to all of his followers on Instagram: who could break an apple in half with their bare hands like “Super Sage” himself?

Check it out!

Well, superstar model Christy Teigen watched Northcutt perform the amazing apple destruction and had a special request for him on her birthday.

Please someone, I need #supersage to rip open an apple as he says happy birthday to me. It's all I want
