Sage Northcutt Not Impressed With Mickey Gall And Wants Fight
Mickey Gall called out Sage Northcutt after he beat CM Punk at UFC 203 and I got excited for a little bit (half chub). Mickey was hoping to fight the super one as early as November. Sage’s father quickly put the kibosh on that story (ef that guy) saying it was unlikely his son would fight Gall that soon because he was suffering from a staph infection and was skeptical about his son moving back up to 170 since he experienced some problems in the Bryan Barbarena fight.
It appears Sage doesn’t listen to his father (thank God) and is eager to fight the man that beat CM Punk (that is pretty catchy and hopefully his new nickname). Sage went on the MMA Hour Monday and said some pretty mean things (only the way a blonde haired, blue eyed stud can do) about Gall. He stated:
“All I can say is that I have better grappling than him and I believe I have better standup. If I go out there, I can take the fight wherever I want. If I want to go out there and knock him out, I can do that. If I want to take him down and submit him, then I believe I can do that also.”
