Legacy FC 44 is now officially in the books and Sage Northcutt had a huge night in Texas.
Northcutt (5-0) submitted Rocky Long (21-34-1) in the second round, sending the 56-fight veteran into retirement. But the bigger news for 19-year-old Northcutt was that the win secured him a UFC contract. He’ll return to Houston on Oct. 3 for his debut at UFC 192.
