After a report Saturday that Matt Hughes was awake and responsive, following a vehicle accident on Friday, the UFC Hall of Famer’s sister has provided an update regarding his condition.

Hughes’ sister has posted the following statement on Facebook:

Matthew Hughes, Audra Hughes, Annette Fuller, Emily Hays Hughes

Our family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support.

Please understand that there are many false reports out there by people who say they are close to the family. We will post another update here when we have more news.

Matt is stable and has no broken bones or internal injuries. He has some minor lacerations and bruising and is currently being weaned from his ventilator. He is not yet awake and not responding as we would like to see but we see the fight in him.

Matts strength and determination along with God’s Mercy and Grace will bring him through this.

We ask that you all continue to pray.

The 43 year-old Hughes was airlifted for emergency, medical treatment on Friday, after the truck he was driving was hit a by a train.
