Earlier this month, UFC featherweight Matt Grice was involved in a serious car accident. He was stopped at a red light, when another car smashed into the back of his automobile, leaving him in critical condition.

But according to a report from FoxSports.com, Grice’s condition has improved and the fighter has been moved from the intensive care unit and into an acute care hospital.

“This ain’t my first rodeo,” Grice told his wife, Caroline, who then forwarded the message to Fox Sports.

The fighter’s spouse said that Grice was showing signs of his personality and a slight glimmer of a returning memory.

It is unknown whether or not the three-fight UFC veteran will be able to return to his career as a mixed martial artist, but he is soon to undergo speech and physical therapy.

There is a donation fund set up by Grice’s family, which has raised over $21,000 of the $30,000 they need for medical expenses. If you would like to donate, you may do so by CLICKING HERE.

In the description of the donation fund, a family statement reads, “The Grice family thanks all of you for all of your positive thoughts and prayers in this tough time of need. You can email your best wishes to Matt and family at mattgricemma@gmail.com, tweet him at @mattgricemma, or post on his Facebook fan page at https://www.facebook.com/mattgricemma.”
