Sage Northcutt signs with Reebok

Add UFC rising star Sage Northcutt’s name to the list of high-profile fighters who have signed individual sponsorship deals with Reebok.

The 19-year-old lightweight made the announcement on his social media accounts on Wednesday and Reebok, the exclusive outfitter of the UFC, confirmed the deal shortly thereafter.

Northcutt joins the likes of megastars Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor, and former champions Chris Weidman, Johny Hendricks, and Anthony Pettis as a few of the only fighters on the roster also signed to individual deals.

Under the current UFC-Reebok payout structure, Northcutt is set to receive $1,500 a fight for adhereing to all outfitting policies during fight week. His pockets will likely be a bit fatter with his new individual deal in place.

Northcutt entered the UFC with a perfect 5-0 record and was highly touted after his appearance on Dana White’s show "Lookin’ for a Fight". He started his UFC career with a bang, finishing his first two opponents but suffered a setback against Bryan Barberena in January, his third fight in four months.

Northcutt returns on July 9 at UFC 200, where he’ll take the Octagon, officially, as a Reebok-sponsored athlete.
