UFC’s Matt Grice in intensive care

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

UFC 157.
