Sage Northcutt dispatched Zak Ottow in the second round of the co-main event at UFC Fight Night 133 on Saturday night at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho.
Ottow looked like he was slowing in the second round when Northcutt hit him with a jab-hook that caught Ottow. Then, Northcutt continued with hammer fists to get the win.
Northcutt, 22, improved to 11-2 on his MMA career. He is now on a three-fight win streak, as he has also defeated Michel Quinones and Thibault Gouti, also at UFC Fight Night events, by unanimous decision.
This was his first time he had a fight ruled as a KO (punches). His previous knockouts were TKO’s with three as TKO’s (punches) and the other was a TKO (Elbows and Punches) against Francisco Trevino at UFC 192.
Ottow, 31, fell to 16-6 in his MMA career. This was the third time he has lost a fight by knockout, but this is the first time he suffered a KO and not a TKO.
He had his one fight win streak go out the door with this loss to Northcutt, as he defeated Mike Pyle at UFC 222 by TKO (Punches). This was the first-time he lost a fight by a KO since losing to Zachary Micklewright at Caged Aggression 12 on March 15th, 2014.
Northcutt improved to 2-0 in 2018. Since February, he has defeated Gouti and Ottow in this calendar year and may have another fight before the year is completed.
Ottow fell to 1-1 in 2018. Since March, he defeated Pyle, before losing to Northcutt.
