Jeff Sherwood broke the story this afternoon, “Lightening” Lee Murray was stabbed multiple times in the chest early Wednesday morning outside of a London nightclub. Tonight the one time UFC fighter is battling for his life in a North London hospital.

MMAWeekly spoke with Alexis Demetriades, an instructor at the London Shootfighters Gym where Murray trains. Alexis gave this statement to MMAWeekly.

“I can confirm he was stabbed multiple times, and that he is currently fighting for his life in I.T.U. He got stabbed while he was fighting a group of guys. They are very bad wounds that punctured lungs, ribs, and put a hole in his heart. Please pray for him.”

Murray’s no stranger to street fights. When he last spoke with MMAWeekly, Lee said, “I got two, three, four hundred street fights. I’ve been street fighting all my life.” This evening he fights for his life. On behalf of the entire MMAWeekly staff, our thoughts and prayers are with Lee, his family, and friends.
