Sage Northcutt has detailed the brutal injuries that he suffered during the KO loss to Cosmo Alexandre at ONE: ‘Enter the Dragon’. The UFC veteran suffered eight fractures and had to undergo a nine hour operation in Singapore.
Northcutt posted an update on Facebook in which he shared the x-ray of his injured face:
ONE: ‘Enter the Dragon’ was a night of massive upsets. The likes of Shinya Aoki, Giorgio Petrosyan and Yodsaenklai Fairtex all suffered devastating defeats.
But the biggest knockout of the night was undoubtedly Alexandre’s finish of Northcutt. The Brazilian landed a right hand just 25 seconds into the opening round which instantly ended the contest.

Next up for Alexandre could well be a welterweight title shot. The reigning champion is Zebaztian Kadestam and, after emphatically defeating a touted prospect last Friday, the Brazilian could well have established himself as the number one contender.
Another welterweight who could be in the mix is Yoshihiro Akiyama. The Japanese veteran makes his promotional debut against Agilan Thani at ONE: ‘Legendary Quest’ next month.
