UFC’s Sage “Super” Northcutt Starts Viral Trend with “Apple Challenge”

UFC Fighter Sage Northcutt is set to face Mickey Gall at UFC Fight Night, Dec. 17 at Golden 1 Center.

With an 8-1 record, Northcutt undoubtedly spends a lot of time training for his next big contest. But when Sage “Super” Northcutt isn’t in the ring, he’s crushing fruit with his bare hands – and turning the obliteration of fruit into a viral sensation.

His request for fans to send in their own #SuperSage moments was amplified when supermodel and social media mogul Chrissy Teigen tweeted at the fighter with a special birthday request.

Please someone, I need #supersage to rip open an apple as he says happy birthday to me. It’s all I want https://t.co/QZ03Vmb0ON— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 30, 2016

And thus, a match made in Twitter heaven was born.  

This is for Chrissy Teigen’s Birthday! Who can crush an Apple like this? Happy Birthday @chrissyteigen pic.twitter.com/wswNd1V4Ut— Sage Northcutt (@sagenorthcutt) November 30, 2016

We can’t wait to see what else “Super” Sage can do, at Golden 1 Center!
