Sabretooth antagonizes Wolverine and the other X-Men as a member of Magneto's "Brotherhood of Mutants", battling them on several occasions. It all came to a head at Liberty Island where Magneto's plan was being carried out inside the Statue of Liberty's head.
Wolverine is pinned to the wall by Magneto's power over his adamantium metal skeleton, his hands stuck against his chest so that he will impale himself if he extends his claws. The others are pinned by sheets of metal also controlled by Magneto. Sabretooth comes down and basically is there to watch them, taking Cyclops’ visor so that he must keep his eyes closed, otherwise he will kill Jean with his optic blasts.
Eventually Wolverine has no other option but to extend his claws, putting them straight through his body and somehow releasing himself from Magneto's power. Sabretooth inspects his "corpse", but is then attacked once Wolverine heals his wound. The two end up on top of the statue's head, slugging it out with almost equal strength, abilities and with Sabretooth seemingly also having a healing factor to survive Wolverine's blows.
Wolverine is able to retrieve the dog-tags of his that Sabretooth took earlier in the film from him, but is then launched off the statue's head. He manages to hang on however, just out of Sabretooth's view, so the henchman returns inside the head and approaches the incapacitated Storm, saying "You still owe me a scream..." (A reference to a line he used in an earlier encounter with Storm).
Wolverine leaps back into the head, revealing that Sabretooth had "Dropped somethin'", Cyclops' visor. Jean used her telekinetic abilities to pull the visor to Cyclops' eyes, pointing it in an arc directed at Sabretooth as Cyclops opens his eyes. Sabretooth is hit with the incoming beam full on, sending him sailing through the wall of the statue's head and plummeting right through the boat that he and the other Brotherhood members had taken to the island.
