Dana White shares Greg Rodrigues cut photo after UFC Fight Night

Hopefully no kids follow Dana White on Instagram.

The UFC president shared a graphic photo of a cut sustained by Gregory Rodrigues during UFC Fight Night 210 on Saturday in Las Vegas. Rodrigues scored a TKO win over Chidi Njokuani in a middleweight bout after sustaining an open wound between his eyebrows that nearly saw the fight stop in the first round.

The cageside doctor let things continue, though, and Rodrigues ended up winning in the second round.

It does at least seem like the cut was stitched up well and Rodrigues was fine. He and Njokuani got a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus for their troubles.

“I know one thing: I’m born for this,” Rodrigues told Daniel Cormier after the fight. “Doesn’t matter, man. You need to kill me.”

Rodrigues, 30, improved his MMA record to 13-4 with the win and is now 4-1 in the UFC.
