Retired MMA fighter Urijah Faber has been the head of Team Alpha Male since the team was first formed and now there appears to be a new addition to the unit.
According to Faber, lightweight prospect Sage Northcutt is on his way to the team in a full time move.
“Right now, he works out with one of my very good buddies out of Paradigm in Texas, who I actually coached in college at UC Davis,” Faber said on The MMA Hour. “And so, this is a week out (for him) right now. He’s got a full camp, so I’m not sure how much he’s going to be out here for his camp, but it’s probably going to be a more permanent thing for him moving forward. But as of right now, he’s kind of splitting time, and man, what a fast learner and what a positive guy. He’s fun to be around.”
To add to the speculation that Northcutt is heading to Team Alpha Male, the fighter also posted the following on Instagram:
