Matt Hughes making ‘miracle’ progress in recovery

Matt Hughes is a legend in the UFC. His welterweight title reigns, the way he carried himself as a champion, and the excitement his bouts gave fans cannot be overstated. Matt was airlifted to a hospital after his truck was hit by a train on June 16th and there was legitimate concern for his health as he had been in a coma and was barely responsive for a time. Now, Hughes has been showing the same fighting spirit he always displayed in the octagon and his recovery is being described as a “miracle”.

Hughes’ good friend posted an encouraging update and a photo on social media on Sunday that made a lot of people breathe a sigh of relief.

“I can’t even describe the emotions I am feeling as I write this post. Less than two months ago I didn’t know if my best friend was going to make it, and tonight we made a jail break for sushi (in disguise. Ha). Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions! His progress is nothing short of a miracle. He is working so hard and fights through the frustration. He is, as he’s always been, an inspiration. I can’t wait to hit the mats with him again…and he told me today that he has “one more round” left in him! Ha. (He laughed…but definitely wasn’t joking!). Thank you for all of your prayers! Please keep them up as he still has a long road ahead of him. I am witnessing the power of them firsthand! So thankful!”

We wish Matt a speedy recovery and our thoughts continue to be with his family. Country boys can survive.
