Havent heard anything, its also not really a good look. Im sure he has heard about it, not really that hard to get on twitter and make a small comment regarding it. Like "keep Matt Grice in your thoughts/prayers" or something like that.

Mckenzie would be my guess.

This was my first thought.

I imagine they'll just pull the fight and cut Larsen a show money check. We'll see. It's early still.

It's to big if a card to just pull the fight. They have plenty of time for a short notice camp. All the big ppv cards have 13 fights for the most part

Jesus man, Grice/Bermudez was my FOTY and I'm super bummed about Grice just like anyone, but you're overreacting.

Seriously, just because it doesn't affect the title doesn't mean it doesn't affect the UFC. It's probably a pretty big deal to Larsen and his team over whether he should continue paying money he might not have as an undercard fighter for a training camp for a fight that might not happen.

Not being rhetorical here - how long is enough before it's okay to ask this? How is it some tragic event if they find a replacement for the fight? This wasn't a post in the thread about Matt's accident, it's not like he insulted Grice in ANY way. It really just reads like you chose to be upset over nothing.

The UFC sends its thoughts and prayers to featherweight Matt Grice, who was involved in a serious auto accident over the weekend in his native Oklahoma that required surgery. Grice is currently in the intensive care unit and more details on his condition will be posted as they are received.

@MMAFighting: [Dana] White doesn't have an update on Matt Grice but talked to his wife this morning.

I mean the co-main was a gift for Oliviera and was only because he was fighting Edgar, but I thought he'd maybe drop only a little bit for his next fight as he surprised a lot of people against Edgar.

But then again this is fairly short notice and the line up is pretty much finalized
