UFC president Dana White has shared graphic footage of a fighter cut during his latest event.

The MMA leader returned to its APEX Facility base in Las Vegas on Saturday night for a card headlined by middleweight contenders Sean Strickland and Abus Magomedov.

Strickland picked up an impressive stoppage win in round two before calling for a shot at the UFC middleweight title currently in the possession of Israel Adesanya.

However, the best fight of the night saw Elves Brener battle back from early adversity to score a massive third-round TKO victory and upset Guram Kutateladze.

The Georgian fighter started off well and landed a huge elbow on Brener that opened up a two-inch gash and threatened to bring a premature end to the Fight of the Night that earned both men a $50,000 (£39,450) bonus.

Blood ran down the face of the Brazilian who was sporting a dramatically different look when he went back to his corner to get some advice from former UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.

Ultimately, Brener found his range in round three and dropped Kutateladze with a short-left hook before following up with a series of ground strikes to improve his record to 15-3.

During a post-fight interview with UFC legend Michael Bisping, the 25-year-old played down the nasty cut he had suffered and suggested it is just par of the course.

“Fights are like this. We are warriors, two samurai going for the win. I told you I was here to win and I’m going to make my name in this division,” Brener said.

Despite the fact he was relaxed about the damage to his face, the UFC doctor took a look and stitched up the gnarly gash backstage.

White shared a video that showed just how bad it was on his Instagram page alongside an image of what Brener’s forehead looked like after it had been worked on.

The UFC boss quickly deleted it, but not before the clip sparked a debate about if Brener had just suffered the worst cut in MMA history after being shared on other social media platforms.

It appears there’s been too many to settle on one. Although, it’s safe to say he certainly earned his second UFC win and the big bonus cheque that came with it.
