The megacard for UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas is filling up with a lot of familiar names. Name like McGregor, Diaz, Aldo and Edgar. Now, Sage Northcutt has been added to that list.
It was reported this morning by this morning by GQ Magazine that Northcutt will be getting in the octagon at UFC 200 against Enrique Marin at lightweight. The bout was confirmed by UFC Vice President of public relations, Dave Sholler, via Twitter.
Northcutt is currently 7-1, and hasn't been in the octagon since his second round submission loss back in January to Bryan Barberena at UFC on FOX 18. Northcutt partially blames that loss due to an illness he suffered in the week leading up to that fight, one that put him in the hospital just days before.
Prior to that, Northcutt was recruited via Dana White's "Looking for a Fight" show on UFC Fight Pass.
Marin is no stranger to the TV circuit either. He is an alumni of Ultimate Fighter Latin America 2, but lost his UFC debut to Erick Montano by split decision. Prior to that, the Spanish professor (yes, really), had won six fight in a row.
The lineup for UFC 200 is still being decided and we can expect more match ups to be announced in the days and weeks ahead. It's even been teased that a possible women's title fight could be added.
