Popular UFC welterweight Sage Northcutt was one of the superstar fighters alongside former UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez. Northcutt, who is well renowned for his sensational striking skills, apparently wants to become a MMA, Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion at One FC.
In a recent interview given to BJPenn.com, One’s CEO Chatri Sityodtong revealed that Northcutt’s dream now is to be a triple world champion in three different sports at One Fighting Championship. Here’s what he had to say:
I love Sage Northcutt, I’m a huge fan. Not only of who he is as an athlete, but also who he is as a human being. His dream now is to be a triple world champion in MMA, Muay Thai and kickboxing in ONE Championship.
If he wants to pull it off, I think Sage can pull it off. Of course it’s going to be hard — very hard — but he’s an incredible striker. He was a Black Belt Magazine Hall of Famer at 15 years old. He’s had hundreds of karate matches. He’s a champion in his own right. I do believe if anybody can win a world title in MMA, Muay Thai and kickboxing, it’s Sage.
