The UFC sends its thoughts and prayers to featherweight Matt Grice, who was involved in a serious auto accident over the weekend that required surgery. More details on his condition will be posted as they are received.

There's not much details on this story but he has a fight coming up next month against Jeremy Larsen at UFC 166 that will probably be cancelled because of this.

Probably? He's having emergency brain surgery. I hope he can live a normal life after all this is over.

As of last night the only news I could find was on the UFC website. And that as you see was very brief in description. So thanks for the more in depth story on this Goatenstein.

Here's an update. Vitals are stable but still in serious condition.

I hope he gets trough this and comes back, I think he's underrated at 145.

Only just seen this can't believe things like this happen. Hope he pulls through for his family.

I imagine his career is definitely over isn't it?
