UFC Legend Matt Hughes Comes Out Of Coma

There is positive news on the Matt Hughes medical front.

On Tuesday, news surfaced that the UFC Hall of Famer has come out of his coma. Hughes had been in a coma since June when his vehicle was struck by a train.

Fellow UFC Hall of Famer and close friend Pat Miletich provided an update to MMAFIghting.com.

“He is surprising the doctors,” Miletich said. “He’s making great leaps and he’s no longer in a coma, and he’s improving. It’s going to be a long road. Any type of head trauma at that level, there’s going to be some rehab.”

It’s great news to hear that Hughes is making significant progress.

Hughes has always been a fighter and we hope he continues to make progress during the next stage of his recovery.

Keep them 🙏🏼 up for @matthughes9x who is no longer in a coma. Long road to recovery, but a very encouraging update from @patmiletich pic.twitter.com/NFNJuUOdUE
