After being absent from the public eye for the previous four years, Sage Northcutt will make his comeback to the Circle at ONE Fight Night 10.Northcutt is scheduled to make his long-awaited comeback on May 5 against Ahmed Mujtaba at the 1stBank Centre in Broomfield, Colorado, which will be completely sold out.In 2019, Sage made his debut under the ONE Championship banner, and there was a lot of anticipation surrounding his signing at the time.
On that particular evening, things did not go according to plan for him because he was defeated by Cosmo Alexandre in less than a minute’s time.
Sage was forced to take some time away from competition in order to have surgery on his injuries and go through a lengthy recuperation process, both of which were further delayed by the effects of COVID-19. As a result of the unsatisfactory outcome on his debut, Sage was forced to spend some time away from competition.
Finally, ‘Super’ Sage has the opportunity to put the past in the past by putting on a performance inside the Circle that will live up to the excitement that surrounded him when he first signed with the promotion. This performance will live up to the excitement because it will live up to the expectations that were placed on him at the time.
Sage Northcutt discussed the defeat he suffered in his professional MMA debut and how it affected him mentally during the process of his comeback in an interview with ESPN MMA.
“There were definitely moments when obviously you had an injury, and whether you’re participating in a professional sport or not, it’s kind of like a disappointment any way. You find yourself thinking, “Man, I really want to go back out there.” When it came to me, I had a bad night in my first bout with ONE, and when it was over, I was like, “That hurts.” I’m itching to come back into the game and have a stellar performance. That wasn’t my best performance, but tonight just didn’t work out for me. I wanted to be better as quickly as humanly could.”On May 5th, at ONE Fight Night 10, Sage Northcutt will make his return to compete against Ahmed Mujtaba. Viewers in North America will be able to watch the full event live and without charge on Amazon Prime Video.
