One of the greatest welterweights of all time – Matt Hughes – was honored at UFC Fight Night 124.

Already a member of the UFC’s Hall of Fame, the legendary former champ got some well-deserved attention for the simple act of surviving. You see, back in June, Hughes suffered a brain injury when his truck was hit by a train, and after emerging from a coma, the Illinois farmboy-at-heart has made a dramatic recovery.

Credit goes to Hughes for fighting through an injury that would’ve ended lesser men, and credit to the UFC for honoring him.
