UFC featherweight Matt Grice hospitalized in critical condition following Oklahoma car wreck

USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and Oklahoma City police officer Matt Grice was involved in a serious car accident on Sunday night (Sept. 8, 2013) in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma, getting hit from behind while stopped at a red light, according to a report from News9.com.

Grice (15-5) is listed in critical condition following brain surgery.

After taking a unanimous decision win against Leonard Garcia at UFC on FX 3: "Johnson vs. McCall" back in June of 2012, "The Real One" came up short on the judges' scorecards against Dennis Bermudez at the UFC 157: "Rousey vs. Carmouche" pay-per-view (PPV) event last February.

His gritty, three-round war against "The Menace" earned him "Fight of the Night."

Grice was in line to fight Jeremy Larsen at the upcoming UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3" PPV event on Oct. 19 in Houston, Texas, but that fight will undoubtedly be canceled. With more than a month until fight night, there's a chance Larsen will be paired off against a short-notice replacement.

In the meantime, our best goes out to Grice and his family as we wish him a speedy recovery.
