A few big names that were formerly part of the UFC roster have found a new home in Southeast Asia under the ONE Championship banner. All of whom were former champions - namely Eddie Alvarez, Demetrious Johnson, and most recently, retired ex-women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, who was tapped to hold a Vice President position in the company.

It looks like this list is continuously growing, with the likely addition of Sage Northcutt. The 22-year-old fighter was in Singapore this week to have a dialogue with ONE Championship founder and CEO Chatri Sityodtong about a possible deal.

“You know what, I’m actually in Singapore right now to talk with Mr. Chatri about possibly being a ONE Championship fighter,” Northcutt told Andrew Whitelaw of FOX Sports Asia. “That’s what I’m talking about, that’d be cool.”

“Super Sage”, for a time, was one of the company’s bannered superstars when he appeared on the debut episode of Dana White’s Lookin’ for a Fight web series in 2015. After going 6-2 in the UFC, he decided to opt for free agency in early September.

Northcutt last saw action in July, where he defeated Zak Ottow via second-round knockout. He currently holds a record of 11-2, with eight wins by stoppage.
