On Friday, on the main card of ONE: Enter The Dragon in Singapore, former UFC talent Sage Northcutt made his debut in the ONE Championship ring. He was welcomed to the Asian martial arts powerhouse by kickboxing talent Cosmo Alexandre, who he met in a mixed martial arts bout.

Northcutt’s ONE Championship did not go as he planned. In fact, this first bout on Asian soil went disastrously for the former UFC wunderkind, as he was knocked out cold by his Brazilian foe in less than 30 seconds.
