Matt Grice underwent surgery this week to have his skull re-attached. And the results -- and his recovery -- are nothing short of amazing.

"The walking miracle" that is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight fighter Matt Grice continues his path to a full recovery following a horrific car crash on Sept. 8, 2013, in which a vehicle rear-ended him while at a stop light in Pottawatomi County, Oklahoma.

After undergoing emergency brain surgery and having part of his skull removed, Grice was listed in critical condition.

Ten weeks later, Grice was re-united with his family when he was released from the hospital thanks to his amazing recovery speed. Earlier this week, Grice underwent another surgery to have part of his skull re-attached.

He posted this picture of the results to his Twitter account:

Indeed, the doctors on hand did a mighty fine job. And though he's still enduring rehabilitation, "The Real One" is expected to make a full recovery.

Grice -- who is also a full time police officer in Oklahoma -- eyes a potential return to the Octagon sometime down the road. For now, Grice is focusing on his recovery and enjoying his family as he continues to live up the to the "walking miracle" moniker given to him by his nurses.

And after all he's been through, it's great to see he still has a great sense of humor and positive attitude.
