Things have not been going Lombard’s way inside the Octagon over the past year, as he has lost his last three fights in the UFC. But he has few reasons to be thankful about over the weekend. Lombard recently posted some harrowing photos and a video on Instagram which details about the car accident he and his family were involved in.

The accident left his car in a complete mess with windshield shattered and roof crumpled, miraculously no one suffered any serious injury.

Lombard sent out a small message along with the video posted on Instagram,

“Super grateful to these friends who helped me a lot after the accident I had. A miracle I am alive! Me and my family are safe and sound, thank you!”

Lucky to be alive! God is good God is great!
