I can’t even describe the emotions I am feeling as I write this post. Less than two months ago I didn’t know if my best friend was going to make it, and tonight we made a jail break for sushi (in disguise. Ha). Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions! His progress is nothing short of a miracle. He is working so hard and fights through the frustration. He is, as he’s always been, an inspiration. I can’t wait to hit the mats with him again…and he told me today that he has “one more round” left in him! Ha. (He laughed…but definitely wasn’t joking!). Thank you for all of your prayers! Please keep them up as he still has a long road ahead of him. I am witnessing the power of them firsthand! So thankful!

On June 16th, UFC legend Matt Hughes was nearly killed when his truck collided with an oncoming train in Iowa, and he has been hospitalized ever since the accident. Matt Hughes’ close friend Tony Zucca shared this photo on Instagram, of him pushing Matt Hughes down the street in a wheelchair, the first time we have seen Matt Hughes since the accident. Matt Hughes has clearly lost a significant amount of weight and muscle mass, he is not yet walking, but he is alive and out of a hospital bed. Matt Hughes is a fighter, and we hope he fights his way to a full recovery, it’s good to see that he is making progress since his brush with death.
