Sage Northcutt returns at UFC 200 against Enrique Marin

Sage Northcutt will return to action at UFC 200 when he faces former "Ultimate Fighter: Latin America" competitor Enrique Marin on the stacked card July 9 in Las Vegas.

UFC officials confirmed the new bout on Thursday via GQ.

Northcutt is coming off his first loss in the UFC after accepting a short-notice welterweight bout with Bryan Barberena at FOX UFC Fight Night in January.

Northcutt says he was ill the week leading up to the fight, and UFC president Dana White even said afterward he regrets letting him accept the bout. But ultimately Northcutt was submitted in the second round by an arm triangle choke.

Now just a few weeks after his 20th birthday, Northcutt accepts his next fight in the UFC as he joins arguably the biggest card of the year.

Marin is a former "Ultimate Fighter" finalist out of Spain, who competed on the most recent season of the Latin America version of the show.

Marin fell to Erick Montano in the finals of the "Ultimate Fighter" tournament after an impressive run on the reality show.

Now he will face Northcutt in a bout at UFC 200 as part of the mega-card taking place at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Northcutt vs. Marin joins a growing lineup for the card in July that includes the main event pitting Conor McGregor against Nate Diaz as well as an interim featherweight title fight between Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo.
