Northcutt has been training MMA since the age of 4 and competed all over the world from a young age. His father, Mark, is a black belt in shuri-ryū karate, and his older sister, Colbey, is an amateur kickboxing champion. At the age of 9, Northcutt became the youngest person ever to be on the cover of Sport Karate Magazine. Northcutt has won a total of 77 world youth championships in karate.

Mixed martial arts career
In 2013, Northcutt began competing on the Legacy Fighting Championship amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) series, amassing an amateur record of 5-1 with his only loss coming on his first bout against Charles Sheppard by technical-knockout (TKO) in the first round. At the age of 18, he turned pro and racked up a 5–0 record in 16 months.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Northcutt was expected to face Andrew Holbrook on January 30, 2016 at UFC on Fox 18. However, after Holbrook withdrew from the bout citing an injury eight days prior to the event, Northcutt would instead make his welterweight debut against Bryan Barberena. Northcutt lost the bout via submission (arm-triangle choke) in the second round.
Northcutt was expected to face Claudio Puelles in a lightweight bout on July 29, 2017 at UFC 214. However, Puelles pulled out of the fight in mid-June citing injury and was replaced by John Makdessi. In turn, the fight was canceled on July 14 due to injuries to both fighters.
Northcutt faced Zak Ottow on July 14, 2018 at UFC Fight Night 133. He won the fight via knockout in the second round. Appearing on The Ariel Helwani Show early September, 2018, Northcutt confirmed his contract expired following the fight with Ottow, making him a free agent. In the same appearance, Northcutt said he planned to listen for offers from various promotions.
On November 26, 2018 Dana White confirmed on UFC Unfiltered that the UFC didn't opt to renew Sage Northcutt's contract and is a free agent. White cited reasons, claiming, "Sage is young, and Sage needs some work. Let him get some work in some other organizations, and we will see where this kid ends up in a couple of years. Maybe we will pick him back up again." 
On November 30, 2018 it was announced that Northcutt signed with ONE Championship. On February 26, 2019, it was announced that Northcutt is scheduled to make his promotional debut against Cosmo Alexandre on May 17, 2019 in ONE Championship: Rise of Warriors.
