MMA fighter Zoran Djodj had his little finger ripped off by a harvester – but finished his work on the farm before going to the hospital.
The Croatian hardman, 31, has confirmed the injury will not stop him fighting Tarhan "The Hulk" Ibragimov on October 19.
The horrifying incident occured when the Djodj, from the village of Ferdinandovac, was harvesting corn.
Local media report that he had attempted to turn off the machine when his hand was pulled inside.
After he finished the job at hand in a makeshift bandage, he went to the hospital.
But they were unable to sew it back together as the machine had completely disingtingrated his little finger.
Instead, his wound was stitched up.
Djodj told local media: "It's not some injury that should stop me from fighting now.
"I didn't even think about postponing my next fight.
"I'm used to so much more pain in MMA fights which hurts much more than right now when the machine severed my finger."
He will take on the Austrian-based fighter in Serbia as part of the SBC fights later this month.
The Croatian has a record of 11 wins, 13 losses and one draw in 25 fights.
