You probably only know Darrell Horcher as the dude who stepped up to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov on late notice at the last UFC on FOX event. Regardless, he’s a UFC fighter now, and we nearly lost him to a motorcycle accident.
As per FOX Sports:
UFC lightweight Darrell Horcher was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident this past Wednesday night that left the fighter’s bike mangled and torn after a car pulled out in front of him near his home in Pennsylvania.
According to Horcher’s manager, Brian Butler of Suckerpunch Entertainment, the UFC fighter hit the Jeep that pulled out in front of him and he flew 240 feet while skidding on the pavement below.
There’s no helmet law in Pennsylvania for motorcycle riders, but Horcher was wearing his when he got hit. Otherwise, his manager believes the fighter probably wouldn’t have survived.
Yikes! Thank goodness he’s relatively okay. It took years for Frank Mir to recover from his motorcycle accident.
