The youngest man to ever step inside the Octagon has signed with ONE Championship, and has his eyes set on more than their MMA division.
“What I think is cool is, they have, not only do they have MMA, but they also have Muay Thai and they have kickboxing,” Northcutt said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour with Luke Thomas. “So, I want to be the champion in MMA, I want to be the champion in Muay Thai and kickboxing. I want to do it all. And I think that ONE Championship is going to be really cool because I believe that I’m going to display my different skills in each of those and I believe be the champ in each of those. I think it’s the perfect league.”
“I was always keeping the options open to see which direction I take,” Northcutt said of his free agency period.
“But I knew when I was going to have the Zak Ottow fight there was going to be a 90-day period. I wasn’t sure if the UFC was going to make me wait all 90 days to get back with me about re-signing or if they were going to come in to offer and match what some other league was offering.”
