    God, that sucks to see how bad that incident hurt him. It's always sad to see someone who was essentially a pinnacle human in one aspect or another fall victim to time and circumstance.

    I hate to see someone so strong brought down like that but it's good to see he is recovering

    Wow. I had no idea his head injuries were that serious. He doesn't even act or sound like himself any more. I genuinely hope he continues to improve.

    It was pretty awesome when he emerged out of nowhere looking like he had recovered a great deal after the accident. He was in a coma for a while I think, things got very quiet and we started losing hope but then all of a sudden we heard about his "miracle" recovery. The guy was even rolling again(very light, obviously) soon after.

    At least he seems positive you can tell hes still very mentally tough and grateful to be alive. but yeah what a massive impact I wonder if he will improve as years go by.

    what's amazing to me is he still looks pretty big, i expected him to look emaciated from the bed rest and injuries.

    War Hughes! He's got a fighter's spirit, clearly.

    i don't know how he got back to where he's at now, from how he looks in that picture, moving the way he does. he looks like he has limited range of motion.

    Matt Hughes is an animal for sure.

    I saw pictures of him rolling in the gym post accident and he looked great!! He looked like the Matt of old. Then sadly I heard him speak at the press conference. It's sad. He's all messed up.

    Dang! I had no idea he had gotten so messed up.
    Last I saw was him walking out to the octagon. He wasn’t walking very well but I didn’t realize it had affected his speech. Clear case of TBI.
    Too bad
