‘Cyborg’ Santos, The MMA Fighter Who Had His Skull Caved In, Shared Some NASTY Before And After Surgery Photos

Remember a couple of weeks ago when MMA fighter Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos had his head caved in by a NASTY Michael Page flying knee at Bellator 158? In case you don’t, it was also the same fight that Page pretended to catch a Pokemon after knocking Santos out.

Well, after seven hours of surgery last week Santos shared some before and after photos that, to say the least, are pretty gruesome.


Damn, his head looks like Frankenstein’s monster Proteus on Penny Dreadful, for those that know that reference. The rest of you can just imagine it.

“I had surgery yesterday, and thank God everything went fine,” Santos told MMA Fighting before leaving the hospital on Thrusday. “It lasted seven hours, and the hospital will give Bellator a full report later today. God guided the doctors in this surgery so everything went well.”

Amazingly, according to Santos’s ex-wife Cris “Cyborg” Justino, he says that he wants to be back fighting in the cage within three months.

Uh, yeah, good luck with that, sir. You’re a braver man than I.
