"Following one of the most exciting fights in all of 2007 in a win over Jason Black at UFC 77, Oklahoma native Matt Grice took some time off from competing in MMA to attend the police academy and help solidify a future for his wife and young daughter.

Grice asked permission from the Ultimate Fighting Championship to take the time off to attend the academy. They were accommodating to let him do what he had to do, while holding his contract in place to allow for his return to the Octagon."

I can't imagine training on the cop schedule that I work. By the time I figure in the family obligations, there's hardly enough time for me to get in an hour at the gym each day. I can't imaging making time for serious MMA training. Hope it all works out for him.

I was really impressed with Grice in his win over Jason Black. As a matter of fact, that exact fight is the one that made me fall in love with the LW division. It's also one of the first fights that I watched on this site.

I'm glad to see him back, and I really hope he does well. War Grice!

i like grice, looked great against jason black and was dominating terry etim before making a mistake. with his wrestling and his toughness he could turn into a pretty decent fighter for the ufc. grice vs. manny gamburyan in his first fight back.
