UFC featherweight Lerone Murphy is currently resting and recovering in a hospital following an accident on Tuesday that left him severely injured.
The 30-year-old fighter from England and goes by the nickname “The Miracle,” just may be a walking… or cycling “miracle.”
“Ffs I can’t catch a break,” Murphy wrote on Instagram. “Another near death experience. Yesterday while cycling, an oncoming car turned right without looking and we collided at speed. Which caused a nasty head wound. The ambulance took 45 minutes to arrive which nearly caused me to bleed out. I’m here still breathing for a greater purpose clearly.”

This is not the first time Murphy has defied death. The featherweight was shot in the face and neck after leaving a barbershop in the UK in 2013. The incident is the reason how the professional mixed martial artist earned the moniker “The Miracle.”
Murphy (11-0-1) is unbeaten since debuting with the UFC in 2019, following a split draw against Zubaira Tukhugov with wins over Makwan Amirkhani, Douglas Silva de Andrade, and Ricardo Ramos. He had a fight scheduled for this past March against Nate Landwehr but Murphy had to remove himself from the contest.
