After being critically injured this past June in a vehicle – train collision, UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes continues to make significant gains in his recovery.
The family of Hughes has reported that the former welterweight champ continues to improve, and his longtime coach, Pat Miletich, recently relayed the same. On Sunday, Hughes friend Tony Zucca posted the image and encouraging comments below.
Prior to the accident, the 43 year-old Hughes had expressed an interest in fighting again.
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!
