Golden boy Sage Northcutt entered into the cage at Saturday night’s UFC on FOX 18 a heavily hyped fighter, though not really hyped for his fighting prowess as much as his good looks and charisma. That fact seemed to get under a lot of people’s skin, so when young Northcutt tapped out to a choke that maybe he shouldn’t have tapped out to, the Twitterverse exploded with haters piling on.

Even fellow fighters joined in the fray. Here’s what TUF winner Tony Ferguson had to say:

Top lightweight rising star Khabib Nurmagomedov didn’t like that (he will likely be fighting Ferguson at a UFC on FOX event in April), so the man who wrestles bears chimed in.

Props to Nurmagomedov for sticking up for the youngster. Here’s hoping he kicks Ferguson’s ass all around the Octagon.
