Sage Northcutt Left With Eight Facial Fractures After Being Knocked Out Inside 29 Seconds
MMA fighter Sage Northcutt's ONE Championship debut ended in the worst way possible when he was knocked out by Cosmo Alexandre inside just 29 seconds of the welterweight.
The former UFC welterweight penned a deal with the Asian promotion back in November and made his debut at the 'Enter the Dragon' show Singapore on Friday night.
But it ended in disaster for the 23-year old as he was caught by a flush right from Brazilian Alexandre in the opening exchanges and was sent crashing to the canvas.
It was Northcutt's third loss of his career and easily the most devastating, particularly because of the injuries he suffered.
He later took to Instagram to reveal that he had suffered no less than EIGHT facial fractures and required to have a nine hour operation as a result.
Northcutt, who was 6-2 in his time in UFC, has hit a standstill in his career but UFC featherweight Cub Swanson feels he'll be back better than ever.
