This past Saturday at UFC on FOX 18 Sage Northcutt suffered the first loss of his professional career.

Northcutt fought Bryan Barberena, who was a late fill-in for Andrew Holbrook. Barberena picked up a 2nd round submission win over Northcutt, which lead many to criticize Northcutt for what they believed was a premature tap.

Many fighters took to social media after the fight to critique Northcutt, however some sent positive words of encouragement.

As always, Northcutt remained optimistic, and announced that he would be training full time at Tristar gym.

In the video above, Northcutt shows off his moves on a hoverboard while spinning a basketball and thanking his fans for their support.
