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.[11]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Northcutt was featured in the debut episode of Dana White's Looking For A Fight.[12] After a victory at Legacy Fighting Championship 44, he was signed to the UFC.[4][9][13]

In his UFC debut, Northcutt also made his lightweight debut when he faced Francisco Trevino on October 3, 2015 at UFC 192. He won via technical-knockout (TKO) in 57 seconds.[14]

Northcutt's second UFC fight was against Cody Pfister on December 10, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 80.[15][16] Northcutt won the fight via guillotine choke in the second round.[17]

Northcutt was expected to face Andrew Holbrook on January 30, 2016 at UFC on Fox 18.[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.[19][20] Northcutt lost the bout via Arm Triangle in the second round.[21]
