In a highly anticipated debut, Sage Northcutt entered the octagon for the first time and took on Francisco Trevino.
Sage came out with a nice side kick. Trevino came in with a kick, got caught, or slipped and went down.
After that Sage went into super mode and went crazy with his strikes. Trevino got to his feet but Sage went full Chuck Liddell and showed up crazy striking speed with his punches while Trevino was against the cage. Then he ducked down and got a big doubled leg takedown.
From there, Sage kept on him, landing tons of punches and elbows in a matter of seconds. The referee saw enough and stopped the fight. Trevino was really upset, protesting the stoppage, he even gave Herb Dean a little push.
Trevino took a lot of shots and looked a little wobbly standing up.
RESULT: Northcutt wins via TKO at :57 of round 1
