Court McGee fixed his broken nose in the middle of a match and is now a 'f—— savage,' according to UFC opponent Carlos Condit.
McGee fought grizzled veteran Condit in the final preliminary bout on the "UFC Fight Island 4" card on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Condit began the fight well and landed a right hook in the final second of the opening round — a punch he threw so hard that it rearranged McGee's face.
The 35-year-old convinced the referee Marc Goddard that he was able to continue once he picked himself up from the floor.
When he retreated to his corner to sit on his stool during the break between rounds, however, broadcast cameras showed that the punch had knocked his nose out of shape.
Rather than leaving his nose out of place, McGee attempted to reset it himself. "I set it moments after this in the 2nd. I felt that it was crooked after I stood up," he tweeted after the fight alongside a picture of his displaced nose.
McGee overcame the injury to fight for another 10 minutes, though he lost a unanimous decision to Condit with scores of 30-27 across the board.
Regardless, Condit was amazed at his opponent's heart, ability to withstand punishment, and repair his wounds on the fly.
"Well this dude fixed it himself, he's a f—— savage," Condit told reporters after the match.
"I think I forgot about it because it wasn't crooked any more. But dude, what a gangster."
The victory bucked a five fight losing streak for Condit as he scored his first win since a 2015 stoppage over Thiago Alves, and now advances his record to 31 wins (15 knockouts, 13 submissions, and three decisions) against 13 losses.
