Muay Thai champion disgusted with Sage Dad and left in disgust. At UFC 200, Sage Northcutt is set to face Enrique Marin. This will be the first time that Sage will enter the Octagon since suffering his first professional defeat by the hands of Bryan Barberena this past January.
Ilya Grad, the Israeli Muay Thai champion, was to train and spar with Northcutt, but things did not go very well. Grad left in anger because he thought Sage’s father was interfering with their training session. He posted on his Instagram account that Sage’s dad was the worst coach he has ever seen.
@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 ??
