My thanks to the rabid fans at /r/MortalKombat for digging these up!

In addition to delivering a playable version of the alien from the 1987 sci-fi flick, the Predator DLC comes with a Carl Weathers skin for Jax. If you happen to equip that skin, you’re treated to the above moment, which is a reference to the most bro-tastic moment from Predator:

Hmm, who wants to rewatch Predator right now?

“You’re one ugly motherfucker” is just one of Predator‘s many, many amazing one-liners, and there’s a tiny reference to it in Mortal Kombat X‘s new DLC.
