Matt Hughes continues to improve after the truck he was driving was hit by a train, and the former UFC champ was seriously injured.

The retired fighter and UFC Hall of Famer was airlifted for emergency medical attention, after the aforementioned accident took place on June 16th. More recently, Hughes’ sister, Beth Hughes Ulrici, reportedly posted this update about him on her Facebook page (quote via MMA Fighting):

“He is improving and continues to show us his heart and determination each day. He has a long road ahead of him and your continued thoughts and prayers will help him with the journey.”

Last weekend, the fighter’s family reported that “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.”
