I think these are the kind of fights Northcutt needs, tough opponents that can hurt him if he slips defensively but that he is just a lit bit better then. Ottow might of been better of if he had let Northcutt back up after that first series but his strategy was obviously to try and ground him. As a fighter it is sometimes hard to gauge how badly an opponent is hurt particularly if you are focused on a strategy, this is where his corner should of been telling him to get it back to his feet where he had rocked him initially. Good defense by Northcutt that allowed him to recover from that first shot.

I disagree, Ottow could not do shit on the ground, he even gassed on top while attacking. Not poor ground game, it was a solid defense. Not world class either, but solid. Keep in mind, Northcutt was rocked before the first takedown.
Ottow could probsbly have won standing up. He thought he could beat Northcutt easy on the ground with a wrestling background, big mistake.
Superior cardio is also a skill. Paired with decent explosiveness I get the impression Northcut is gaining momentum. He simply needs more experience, but cardio and power wise he is already at elite level. 
His chin is still his weakness, sticking it out as a huge target and keeping the left low, inviting timed counter attacks as seen in the first connect. This is an issue. He is lacking a proper defense and dodging standing up, every time he attacks he is pretty vulnerable for a counter.
Other than that, with a few more fights and with that conditioning I see him fighting for a title after 3-4 more wins.

Ottow looked poor gassing so quickly, he only got tagged a few times. But yeh Sage recovered from the first round on his back and put his opponent away, can’t ask for more than that. Let’s see how he progresses, he’s still so early on in his career.

So much potential if he can just put it all together. Just need's to work on his defense. And keep his chin from being exposed. Sage coild one day be the champ. Or be a guy like randleman who just never really evolved to what he could have been.

He actually did well on the ground.
