Sage Northcutt, Thibault Gouti to Clash at UFC Fight Night 126 in Austin

By Tristen Critchfield Dec 21, 2017

Sage Northcutt will compete in his home state when he faces Thibault Gouti at UFC Fight Night 126 in Austin.

The Las Vegas-based promotion confirmed the lightweight pairing on Thursday. UFC Fight Night 126 takes place at the Frank Erwin Center on Feb. 18 and also includes a heavyweight duel pitting Derrick Lewis against Marcin Tybura. The card is expected to air on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

A native of Katy, Texas, Northcutt has gone 4-2 during his Octagon tenure. Most recently, the 21-year-old Team Alpha Male product earned a unanimous verdict over Michel Quinones at UFC Fight Night 120 on Nov. 11.

Gouti, meanwhile, halted a three-bout skid – and earned his first promotional triumph -- with a first-round technical knockout of Andrew Holbrook at UFC Fight Night 115 on Sept. 2. The 30-year-old Frenchman is 12-3 over the course of his pro career.
