Super Sage will get out of the squat rack long enough to fit a ONE Championship fight into his schedule this weekend.

Sage, 11-2, is fighting in the 185 pound division in ONE. His opponent is 7-1 Bellator veteran Cosmo Alexandre who last fought in 2016 and managed to beat a guy whose record was 2-4. Cosmo has spent most of his career fighting at 155. He's 37 years old.

I'd say ONE learned its lesson with Eddie Alvarez: Don't sign a UFC "superstar" and match him up with a guy who could beat him in his first fight.

Here's a photo of Sage and his mother.

Weird to see a 7-1 pro take sure a long layoff. Was he injuried?

He's been fighting (not very often) as a kickboxer the past couple of years in Asia and Europe. He's got a pretty good record in kickboxing: 69-19.

That's a very real possibility. Sage should win if he fights smart but trying to compete on the feet could be a huge mistake. I'm very interested in how this fight plays out.

Cosmo is going for a dive.  ONE FC is run by the Asian mafia and they will build Sage up.

I’m still shocked the UFC just let a top prospect walk like that

One fc had a death due to weight cutting and so they don't cut weight anymore. It's a different system. 

That's why you got lightweights fighting at 185

True but I think Eddie losing actually gave ONE FC a bigger name. Showing a former UFC champ in Eddie. Possibly a goat st LW with his resume losing just adds value to One’s fighters

It’s MMA rules im pretty sure mate. Father Time or not- Cosmo fucks Sage up standing. I’m willing to bet on that

He isn’t a top prospect, he’s a pretty face.

I think they didn’t see him as worth what he could get elsewhere, while in Japan they can favourably match him up and make him some pretty boy karate star

Ah okay gotcha

Thanks man

I've only seen Cosmo lose in kickboxing. I know he's around but I've only seen him in a couple Glory fights. I've been watching more on Glory's YT channel. I had no idea he has an MMA record.

 

I hope Sage does well in ONE. I think he can be a pretty big star in Asia.

Wait, is he really curling the Olympic bar?

2 X 10-lb bumper plates + 2 X 25-lb bumper plates + 45-lb bar = 115 lbs?

That's pretty damn impressive for a lightweight.
