I met adult, badly disfigured (9)


I believe the answer is:


'disfigured' is the definition.
(mutilating is a kind of disfiguring)

'i met adult badly' is the wordplay.
'badly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'imetadult' is an anagram of 'MUTILATED'.

(Another definition for mutilated that I've seen is " Mangled".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
