WATCH: MMA fighter gets eight broken bones in his face in 29 seconds

Sage Northcutt subsequently joked about his ‘Terminator face’ following the brutal fight.

MMA fighter Sage Northcutt has joked about his “terminator face” after he was battered so badly in a 29-second fight that he was left with half his face smashed up, much like the iconic Terminator on the 90s movie poster. Northcutt underwent an intensive nine hours of surgery after he suffered eight fractures in his bloody defeat to Cosmo Alexandre last week at his ONE Championship debut.

The 23-year-old Texan fighter tweeted, “Fresh out of surgery…I had eight fractures and a nine-hour intense operation. Feeling blessed for the amazing care and all the support from @onechampionship, my family/friends and fans!”.

“My Terminator face is not too Shabby.. ‘I’ll be back!’ Next post is catheter removal…stay tuned -JK,” he added to his 792,000 followers.
