One of Britain’s most exciting fighters politely offers to take on Sage Northcutt

All for this!

Darragh Murphy

Well this sounds interesting.

Sage Northcutt remains one of the biggest names in the UFC’s lightweight division despite the fact that his shine has been slightly dulled by the pair of defeats in his admittedly young career.

Many considered Northcutt lucky to be given the split decision nod in his return to action on Saturday night, when he eked past Thibault Gouti on the UFC Fight Night 126 card.

‘Super’ Sage is up there with the most hyped prospects in UFC history and certain fighters understandably feel somewhat hard done by the fact that they’ve not received the promotion and backing of the 21-year-old who rose to prominence on the TV show Dana White’s Looking For A Fight.

Northcutt has been the subject of many callouts since making his Octagon debut as a teenager in 2015 and the latest has come via none other than British 155lbs star Marc Diakiese.

Diakiese wasted no time in endearing himself to UFC fans with his thrilling striking style which earned him three consecutive victories after making his much-publicised switch from BAMMA in 2016.

But after suffering back-to-back defeats, ‘Bonecrusher’ is well aware that he needs to get back in the win column and he needs to do it in style.

The Doncaster fighter is eager to share the Octagon with Northcutt next and he issued his callout in the most polite manner imaginable, poking fun at the famously wholesome attitude of Northcutt in the process.

Get this fight booked!
