After a pair of 19-year-olds provided the biggest stories from last month’s World Wrestling Championships in Las Vegas, the UFC showed off a prodigy all its own in lightweight Sage Northcutt.

Perhaps the most impressive part of Northcutt’s UFC 192 victory over Francisco Trevino, was what came after the 57-second fight. The six-footer from Katy, Texas, showed off his gymnastics skills in the octagon by turning a cartwheel into a high-flying back flip.

Then, Northcutt followed his interview with Joe Rogan with an even more impressive standing front flip.

Northcutt handled his post-fight press conference like the fight itself — with rapid-fire self-assuredness. The Texas A&M student, who could pass for a young Dolph Lundgren, is hoping for a quick turnaround for his next date in the octagon.
