Before

UFC president Dana White shared before and after photos of a horrific cut suffered by Gregory Rodrigues.

This past Saturday, Rodrigues took on Chidi Njokuani on the main card of UFC Vegas 60. Rodrigues went into the bout off an impressive knockout victory over Julian Marquez in June and scored another highlight-reel finish over Njokuani with punches in the second round. There was a moment when the contest appeared to be in danger of being called off by the doctor when Njokuani opened a rough cut right above Rodrigues’ nose.

“RoboCop” managed to power through the slash and get add a second straight win, making it two and one for the year, with the sole loss coming in Feb. to Armen Petrosyan.

Following the fight, White took to his Instagram to update the fans on Rodrigues’ nasty cut. He posted two photos on his story where one is a clear view of the gnarly wound and the other after getting stitches.
