The free agent recently appeared at One Championship: Heart Of A Lion this past Friday and said the following to Fox Sports Asia about potentially signing with One Championship:
“You know what, I’m actually in Singapore right now to talk with Mr. Chatri about possibly being a ONE Championship fighter. That’s what I’m talking about, that’d be cool.”
Northcutt holds a 6-2-0 record in the UFC (11-2-0 overall), with those victories coming over Francisco Trevino, Cody Pfister, Enrique Marin, Michel Quinones, Thibault Gouti and the aforementioned Ottow. The fighter was signed to the UFC after appearing on Dana White’s Lookin’ For A Fight and has been with the promotion ever since.
If the fighter does choose to sign with One Championship, it would be the latest in a big series of signings for the promotion. As One Championship recently came to deals with former UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez, former UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson (via trade) and former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate (who will serve as One Championships Vice President).
