UFC featherweight Matt Grice remains in intensive care after his
car was struck by another automobile while stopped at an
intersection in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
According to local news reports, the accident happened on Sunday
night between 5 p.m and 6 p.m. Grice, who also serves as an
Oklahoma City police officer, was stopped at a red light when
another driver plowed into the back of his vehicle.
While the driver of that car was treated and released, Grice was
rushed to a local hospital where he had emergency brain surgery.
Though swelling of his brain has subsided overnight, he remains
under sedation as of Monday afternoon, family friend Daniel
Rubenstein told FOX Sports.
The 32-year-old Grice is a father of two daughters.
A four-time Oklahoma state high school wrestling champion and
Division I collegiate wrestler at Oklahoma, Grice (15-5) has had
two separate runs in the UFC. During his current stretch, he is 1-2
as a featherweight, although his most recent bout, a split-decision
loss to Dennis Bermudez in February, is considered to be one of the
most exciting matches of the year, and won Fight of the Night at
