Sage Northcutt knocked out Zak Ottow in the UFC Boise co-main event. Ottow cracked Northcutt with the first punch he threw, making the eyes of his opponent roll back for just a moment, and held him down for the bulk of the first round. Northcutt had his say in the second stanza, tagging Ottow on the feet, forcing him to fall to the floor, and then knocking him out with some savage ground and pound. Then, he did a super-cool flip.
