Huge disparity...

LOL, if we would judge just by their physiques I don't even know how a fight between these two could even be licensed. :laugh:

Pfister going around talking complete shit about Sage all week and then stands there smiling like a little school boy with his buddy. Not a big fan of Sage yet but when a 25 year old is saying his life experience is so much greater than a 19 year olds, it's pretty funny. @oldfan, what do you feel about a normal 25 year old dude using his age as a sign of his great wisdom? haha.

I pretty much always watch these weigh ins for half an hour then think "Why the hell did I just watch those?".

Kids been training since he was 4. Unlikely he's on steroids with nearly 2 decades of training already. He's won 100 karate championships or something insane like that. 15-0 kickboxing too. The kid was literally born to fight. If ever there was a true purebread mma fighter it's Northcutt. His dad was a karate champ, he's a karate champ and he's been training since he could understand English.

HIs dad was also a coke and roid pusher.

I dont care if uou are training since 4. He is still a BOY at age 19.

Id be surprised if he never did roids.

This freaking physique screams roids big time, I think one clue in his benefit is how smooth his skin is. Looks like made of plastic, actually.
Hes 19. Even a grizzly fecker like me had kick ass skin at 19.

I dont think hes roiding. Hes just young with a decade of hard training behind him. The reason he looks so weird is because there's no context. Its a very rare thing to find somebody so young committed to sports all their life. We dont really have anybody to compare him to.

Young athletes dont need roids. They got that endless natural funk going on.

I don't think he's on testosterone either he wouldn't need it at that age, but I'd say his supplement cupboard is stacked full of all types of shit.

No doubt. He probably eats a crap ton of horrendously named stuff that comes out of plastic bottles.

Honestly, in all my years watching sports, I don't recall a single PED bust involving an athlete under 25. I dont remember any under 30 either, but im not brave/certain enough to make that claim.

Sage has insane genetics, 90% of the posters here could do roids and never look as lean and jacked as he does. But some people just have great genetics, as i'm sure some of the posters here do as well.
The problem is theres a culture of drug abuse there, his father who is also his trainer has taken and sold them. Sage also competes in a sport riddled with juice. These days its almost like cycling was where everyone was on something. Someone is getting popped every two weeks now. Benefit of the doubt doesn't rest with the athletes anymore. Same case with Holly Holm, theres no smoke without fire. Even the bosses of the UFC allowed Vitor to fight roided in UFC 152 not so long ago.
The bookies should start opening a sportsbook on roids

I disagree... He's lean with great muscle insertions but he certainly isn't some mass freak. If a guy's life revolves around fitness, what he has shouldn't be unattainable in a natural state.

At 19, his T levels should be fairly high. I'm not going to say the kid is clean; as I have no idea.... but I would argue that his physique alone doesn't damn him.

After watching these weigh ins, I realized how much better they are when the entire Fox team isn't covering them. It annoys the piss out of me when the annalists cut and tell you some stupid fact about the fighter.... or what baseball game is on that weekend.

Lastly.... Cody Pfister looks derp... very derp.

Bold part can't be overlooked. I don't remember seeing anybody close to his physique ever in MMA. I don't know why people automatically buy into "he is training hard since he was a kid" while never thinking the same about other fighters who never popped before and are accused of roiding. Can't other people be grat athletes too?

Anyway, I will maintain my line he is a clean fighter until he fails a test, I only wanted to point out how people's mindset vary depending on who they like, who they don't, because Sage's physice is... extreme.
