UFC lightweight prospect Sage Northcutt (6-0 MMA) impressed a lot of people by taking only 57-seconds to TKO Francisco Trevino in his octagon debut earlier this month at UFC 192.
Fellow UFC lightweight Kevin Lee (11-1 MMA) was NOT one of those people.
“The Motown Phenom” recently told MMAJunkie Radio that he could end Northcutt’s career as quickly as it started:
“I think Sage shuts down after the first round. I think as soon I get in there, hit him a couple of times, he shuts down. I don’t think this kid has ever been through anything. I just know he’s a rich, privileged white boy, and as soon as he gets in there and gets hit and sees some adversity thrown into his face, I think he’s going to crumble. I think I’m a better striker than him. I damn sure know I’m a better wrestler than him, so I think I can beat him everywhere. I hope he’s listening in so he can hear me, he can hear what I’m saying about him. I’m going to call (UFC matchmaker) Joe (Silva) as soon as I get off the phone with you guys. We can do it at (UFC) 194. He’ll live the shortest career that the UFC has known.”
Kevin Lee is currently scheduled to fight Leonardo Santos (14-3-1 MMA) at December’s UFC 194 event in Las Vegas.
