Friday the MMA world was dealt a blow when Matt Hughes was life flighted out of a train accident and into a local hospital, where he remained in a coma.
Now here we are, three days removed from the tragedy, and the Hughes family has released an official statement.
The statement reads:
Official Family Statement
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.
