We will get to see how Sage Northcutt deals with adversity, as the prospect was given a new opponent just over a week away from UFC on FOX 18.

Northcutt will now open the FOX main card against Bryan Barberena after an injury knocked Andrew Holbrook out. The card, which takes place January 30, features Anthony Johnson vs. Ryan Bader in the main event.

After competing at lightweight in his first two bouts, Northcutt (7-0) will fight at welterweight vs. Barberena (10-3).
