As it turns out, not was Sage Northcutt brutally knocked out at ONE Championship’s “Enter The Dragon” card Friday, “Super’s” face was fractured in multiple places by Cosmo Alexandre’s right hand.

Northcutt faced the experienced and noted kickboxer in what was the UFC vet’s ONE debut. But, Alexandre needed less than 30 seconds to viciously put Northcutt away.

Since then, Northcutt revealed via the post below that he needed to undergo surgery to repair multiple, facial fractures.

After hearing of the news, Swanson reached out to Northcutt with this classy post:

Hey @sagenorthcutt I had almost the exact same injury in 2011 & I was back in the Octagon a few months later. I’m sure you’ll comeback stronger than ever too

Here’s hoping Northcutt has a full and speedy recovery. It’s going to be interesting to see who ONE matches him up against next. Leading up to “Enter the Dragon”, more than a few, knowledgeable observers noted that Northcutt was going to be in for a serious test with Alexandre.
