Sage Northcutt Returns to ONE Championship After 4-Year Layoff

The long wait is over - Sage Northcutt is finally back in action. He fights Ahmed Mujtaba in a welterweight bout on May 5th for ONE Championship Fight Night 10 - ONE’s U.S. debut.

Northcutt (11-3) has been out of action since his middleweight fight with Cosmo Alexandre - his ONE debut - in which he suffered brutal facial fractures that took him out of action. Complications from COVID-19 delayed Northcutt’s return to action, but after 4 long years, he’s moving down to welterweight to take on Mujtaba.

Mujtaba (10-2) is 4-2 over 6 fights for ONE Championship, coming off two first-round finishes.

ONE Championship Fight Night 10 is the promotion’s first event on American soil - headlined by the trilogy between ONE bantamweight champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger Adriano Moraes.
