Bryan Barberena scored potentially the biggest win of Saturday night at UFC Fight Night: Johnson vs. Bader when he upset surging lightweight Sage Northcutt with a second-round submission in Newark, N.J.
But Barberena wasn’t done after forcing the 19-year-old to quickly tap embarrassingly out of half guard. During his post-fight interview, after letting the world know he’s got a hype train of his own, Barberena made it clear that Northcutt isn’t the only one who can do crazy front flips.
OK, maybe Northcutt is. But what Barberena really showed us is that ungodly athleticism doesn’t guarantee you squat inside the Octagon.
With the win, Barberena improves to 2-0 in the Octagon, 10-3 overall, while Northcutt falls to 7-1.
