OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City Police officer remains in critical condition following a three-car crash over the weekend.    

Matt Grice was off-duty on Sunday when he suffered a head injury in the accident. Grice is well known not only for his service as a police officer but also as an MMA fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. 

"We hope for the best and he is a strong kid," said Daniel Rubenstein, who is praying for his friend. "He is going to pull through this." 

Rubenstein manages Grice's UFC Career and pointed out he has a lot of people in his corner right now.

"It really speaks lot to his character and a lot of people pulling for him, you know. Even the guys he had fought are really concerned."

Grice was rear ended while at a stoplight on US-177 at 45th St. in Shawnee. The driver who crashed into Grice said he was distracted by a passenger at the time of the accident. Grice suffered a brain injury.

Rubenstein explained this is not the first time Grice has been in a car accident. In 2000, the car he was riding in crashed into a utility pole sending him through the windshield. Grice survived the crash and eight surgeries back then. 

Rubenstein says Grice has even more to live for now.

"He's got a wife and a kid and they are the most important to him."

With no way of knowing the long-term impact of the accident, Rubenstein says they've set up a fund to assist to help the family.

For anyone wanting to make a donation to the Grice family here or a donation can be made in his name at any BancFirst location.
