Merab Dvalishvili doesn’t scare easily, but a recent car accident left “The Machine” shaken up.

During a visit to New York, Dvalishvili and associates found themselves in an accident that involved at least three vehicles. The bantamweight contender’s friend Giorgi Kiknadze shared video of the aftermath of the collision, which can be watched below.

Dvalishvili can be heard saying, “I’m good” as he assesses the situation from inside the car. He also later shared the video on his Instagram Stories along with a caption reading, “Everything is good. Every one is safe.”

It’s unclear from the video if anyone outside of Dvalishvili’s party suffered any injuries in the crash.

The fighter later exited his car, a ride-share, and then took video of the damage done to the other vehicles. Two (including the one that Dvalishvili and company were in) suffered massive impacts to their sides, while another had its front left side completely blown out.

“I am in New York for one day, a couple of hours, and I got in a huge accident,” Dvalishvili said. “I was in Uber and our car got hit by some other cars. Look at the damage. I was sitting here and got hit, thank God I’m OK. F*ck. Now my bags are inside.”

Dvalishvili is currently on a 10-fight win streak in the loaded bantamweight division, and he awaits his next booking, which is expected to be a title bout against champion Sean O’Malley.
