Matt Grice, a legend in Oklahoma high school wrestling who has had two stints in the UFC, was scheduled to undergo brain surgery tonight after being rear-ended at a stop light.
Grice, 32, was hit from behind at a red light in Pottawatmie County in Oklahoima and was scheduled for surgery tonight at OU Presbyterian hospital.
Grice is the only high school wrestler in the history of the state of Okahoma to win Outstanding Wrestler three times, and when you consider the wrestlers that have come out of the state, that is quite the statement.
But injuries plagued him in college. He's now 15-5 as an MMA fighter, and works as a police officer in Oklahoma City as his regular job. His last fight was a loss to Dennis Bermudez on Feb. 23 in Anaheim, Calif., which was one of the most amazing fights so far this year.
