Ex-UFC champion hospitalized after truck collides with moving train

Famed mixed martial artist Matt Hughes was injured Friday morning after his pickup truck was struck by a train in Montgomery County, Illinois.

UFC president Dana White earlier said he had been in contact with Hughes' family. It's not clear exactly what state he is in, but his family is headed to meet him, per White. Hughes (45-9) is now 43-years old and retired from fighting in 2011.

Hughes' accident took place north of his hometown of Hillsboro, Illinois.

In a statement, the hospital reported a trauma team stabilized Hughes and passed on a request from the Hughes family asking for privacy.

He is a Two-time Welterweight Champion.

Hughes also has victories over the likes of Matt Serra, B.J. Penn, Royce Gracie, Frank Trigg and Sean Sherk, among others.
