Matt Grice, a member of the UFC’s featherweight division, was injured in a car accident in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma Sunday night.
Grice, a member of the Oklahoma City police staff, was hit from behind while at a red light. According to a report by News 9, he is still undergoing brain surgery at this time. Bryan O’Rourke posted on Twitter that he has swelling on his brain and bleeding, which doctors are trying to alleviate.
Grice graduated from Oklahoma University and has been with the UFC since 2011, going 1-2. He is 15-5 overall and scheduled to face Jeremy Larsen this coming October. That will likely be called off now.
Grice was off duty when he was struck.
