UFC star Dan Hooker has revealed a gruesome cut to his eyebrow as he eyes a return to the octagon next month.

The 32-year-old New Zealander is targeting a first fight of 2023 in Perth on the UFC 284 card, taking place on February 12.

But he has suffered a hiccup in his preparation after cutting his eyebrow.

Hooker shared the gruesome image on social media, adding the caption: “‘Think you’re cut.’ ‘Is it bad, take a picture’ 😅.”

Reacting to the shocking cut, one person said, “Damn bro, it’s deep!”

Another added: “This brings a new definition to ‘opening your third eye'”.

And a third said: “How many stitches Dan? It looks like it’s sore.”

Hooker, who has a professional record of 22 wins and 12 losses, announced his plan to return to the Octagon in Perth earlier this month.

In November, he returned to winning ways, stopping Claudio Puelles in the fourth round at UFC 281 in New York.

It was his first win in 14 months and he now looks closer to home.

Speaking to Freestylebender on YouTube, he said: “UFC Perth, I think that’s the logical next step.

“I feel like I’m just starting out, I feel like this is a fresh start.

“My skill level is one step ahead of ranked and unranked, so I definitely belong there.

“For Perth, it should be a ranked opponent… I think the fans came out and said, and they’re all pretty adamant, that they want someone in the ranks.”

UFC 284 is led by Islam Makhachev against Alexander Volkanovski.
