UFC Fighter Wins, Does Unbelievable Somersault as Tribute to Fallen Foe

By Stephen Douglas

Bryan Barberena submitted Sage Northcutt in the 2nd round of their fight at UFC on FOX 18 last night. With the win, Barberena improves to 11-3 in his career, including a 2-1 record in the UFC. Most impressively, he derailed the Sage Northcutt hype train. Just 19-years old, Northcutt was fighting his third UFC bout in 4 months, billed as a star, and making much more money than other, more well-established fighters.

Oh, and that somersault? That was a little fun at the expense of Northcutt.
