Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Saggo made his professional debut in August 2009, winning a fight in Northern Ireland. He amassed a record of 9-1, competing primarily for various regional promotions in Canada before signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the spring of 2014.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Saggo was expected to face Marcin Bandel on April 11, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 64. However, Saggo pulled out of the bout due to an injury to his achilles tendon and was replaced by promotional newcomer Stevie Ray.
BTC Fight PromotionsEdit
Following his release from the UFC, Saggo signed a multi-fight deal with BTC Fight Promotions out of Burlington, Ontario. He had his first fight on November 24, 2018 against Adam Assenza at BTC 4 for the BTC Lightweight Championship and won via first round rear-naked choke.
On May 9, Saggo vacated the lightweight title in preparation for a catchweight bout against Deivison Ribeiro on June 1, 2019 at BTC 6.
