Urijah Faber Claiming That Sage Northcutt Is Coming To Team Alpha Male


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:
