19-year-old Sage Northcutt has won two straight fights in the Octagon, and the UFC is giving him another high profile booking to start off 2016.
It was announced during Saturday’s UFC on Fox 17 broadcast that Northcutt will take on Andrew Holbrook next month on the main card of UFC on Fox 18, joining Anthony Johnson vs. Ryan Bader and Josh Barnett vs. Roy Nelson as three of the four confirmed main card fights for that event.
“Super” Sage made his debut in October with a 57 second win over Francisco Trevino, and added a second round submission over Cody Pfister just last week at UFC Fight Night 80. The 11-0 Holbrook made his UFC debut on the undercard of UFC on Fox 16 in July, defeating former TUF runner-up Ramsey Nijem by split decision to keep his record unblemished.
The UFC on Fox 18 card hits the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Saturday, January 30.
