SAGE NORTHCUTT RETURNS TO ONE CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER 4-YEAR LAYOFF
Sage Northcutt takes on Ahmed Mujtaba at ONE Championship Fight Night 10 this May.
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.
