    Matt Hughes hit by Train

    Taken from TMZ.com

    UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes was badly injured in a car accident in Illinois on Friday when a truck he was in collided with a moving train, law enforcement tells TMZ Sports.
    We're told the accident occurred at 10:39 AM. Law enforcement says 1 person was transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Dana White says that injured person is in fact Hughes.
    Investigators are at the crash site trying to figure out what went wrong.
    White says Hughes suffered head trauma and his family is on their way out to be with him.
    Hughes is a UFC Hall of Famer -- a 2-time welterweight champion who beat stars like GSP, BJ Penn and Royce Gracie. He last fought in the UFC in 2011.
    Earlier this year, he mulled a comeback.

    They had a vid of him rolling a couple months ago, but think it was just for good press. He didn't look all there, was wearing his shoes on the mat, and was very light flo-ing, probably just to go through basic motions again.

    Saw something else recently of him visiting the nurses that looked after him. He looked a lot better in the face, and seems to be putting more of his mass back on....which I guess is pretty extraordinarily considering he's lucky to have survived that!!
