Walka z Bryanem Barbareną, była błędną decyzją wg Sage’a Northcutta ale jeszcze większym błędem wg sparringpartnera Ilya Grada jest trener ojciec Sage’a, który jego zdaniem jest kompletnym przeciwieństwem dobrego trenera. Grad radzi… wiej póki jeszcze masz czas.
@supersagenorthcutt came in for sparring today preparing for UFC 200. I want to say something nice about the kid but oh my what a disaster it was. His dad is probably the worst coach I've seen in my life. He walks around talking shit from the start like we owe him something, then he interrupting his real coach during the rounds and gives poor Sage negative pet talk in between! Then at the 3rd round when I was just warming up and started pushing the pace they accused me of trying to hurt him and retired him from sparring! ? – When I train someone for a fight I want to put them in difficult situations, as you would in a real fight but these clowns just want him to do well and when he doesn't they accused me of some shit and made a scene! Never have I seen such bad coaching in my life! You have great potential kid, If you smart tell your dad to stay away from your fight camp so you could actually get some training done! Good luck for 200 ✌️
