Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes is already back to his training ways just two months after his truck was hit by a moving train in Illinois.
The accident occurred on June 16 when a train hit the passenger side of Hughes’ car in the city of Raymond, and the UFC Hall Of Famer was soon airlifted to HSHS St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. Amazingly, Hughes had no internal injuries or broken bones, but was only minimaly responsive for a few days following the accident.
It seems as though the former 170-pound king is doing great on the road to recovery, as his friend Tony Zucca took to Instagram to post the following video of Hughes getting in some jiu-jitsu training:
“I leave for only five days and come back to his ass wanting (and able) to roll! Unbelievable! Spare me the grappling lessons. The only things that are important: firing muscles that haven’t been used in a long time…and having fun! So awesome to see that smile and hear that laugh again. If I posted a video from day one and compared it to today…and you still didn’t believe in miracles…well, there’s nothing that’s ever going to change your mind.”
