Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes was in a truck that was struck by a train a few months back and his life has been in danger ever since.
Updates provided by Hughes’ family have said that the UFC Hall Of Fame member has been making steady progress since the accident. Tony Zucca, who is a close friend of Hughes and his family, has posted an update saying that the fighter has made some “miracle progress.”
Zucca posted the news on Instagram:
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!
Despite the “miracle progress” made by Hughes, the fighter still has a long road of recovery ahead of him.
