UFC fighter Sage Northcutt is reportedly set to join the world renowned Team Alpha Male fight camp.
That’s the world according to TAM leader Urijah Faber, who told Ariel Helwani on ‘The MMA Hour’ show that, Northcutt is, “out here learning the good stuff.He and I just got done doing a little private (lesson),” before adding that he was looking to make the arrangement more permanent.
“Right now, he works out with one of my very good buddies out of Paradigm in Texas, who I actually coached in college at UC Davis. And so, this is a week out (for him) right now. He’s got a full camp, so I’m not sure how much he’s going to be out here for his camp, but it’s probably going to be a more permanent thing for him moving forward. But as of right now, he’s kind of splitting time, and man, what a fast learner and what a positive guy. He’s fun to be around.”
With a 3-2 record in the Octagon, Northcutt may not have lived up to the early hype from the UFC PR machine so far, but it’s worth bearing in mind that he’s still only 21-years-old, and a well-respected gym like Team Alpha Male would be a great place to continue to develop his skills.
