Sage Northcutt was destroyed way more than anyone thought after a 29-second, first-round knockout in his ONE Championship debut -- turns out he suffered 8 fractures and was in surgery for 9 hours to repair the damage.
Northcutt posted a horrific pic of the aftermath ... hooked up to all sorts of stuff post-op in the hospital.
