Sage Northcutt (7-0) is coming off a second round guillotine choke win over Cody Pfister back in December. He is currently 2-0 in the UFC after a spectacular first round TKO victory at his debut in October last year. Northcutt was a product of the new ‘Dana White Looking for a fight’ series and was signed to the UFC after being discovered.
Bryan Barberena (10-3) is coming off a loss to Chad Laprise at UFC 186 where he lost by a decision. Previous to that loss, he had a successful debut earning himself a third round TKO win over Joe Ellenberger at UFC On FOX 13 in Dec 2014. Barberena is currently 1-1 in the UFC.
This bout is headlined by Anthony Johnson vs Ryan Bader and will take place Jan 30th at the Prudential Center in Newark New Jersey.
