Matt Grice has part of skull reattached successfully

UFC Featherweight, Matt Grice, is still healing up from a horrific car accident that occurred earlier this year. In September, Grice was rear-ended by a driver at a very high speed. The accident caused serious brain damage to Grice, and multiple surgeries were needed to save his life. One of those surgeries included removing part of his skull.

This week, Grice underwent yet another brain surgery. This time, his piece of skull that was once removed, was put back in place. Grice tweeted the aftermath in good spirits:

Thankfully, the surgery was deemed to be successful, and Grice should heal up well. Here is to hoping a speedy and successful recovery for Grice. We wish him nothing but a healthy future for him and his family.

As a fighter, Grice has a record of 15-5 overall, and 1-2 in the UFC. Earlier this year he was involved in one of the fight of the year candidates against Dennis Bermudez. The fight was a razor close, back and forth battle that saw both men leave everything they had inside the Octagon. That fight garnered Matt a lot of new fans, and showed what a true warrior he is.
