UFC welterweight Ricardo Almeida walked away unscathed from an ugly car crash in New Jersey on Thursday. "Cachorrão" was driving alone on his way to the airport when he rear-ended a FedEx delivery truck on the New Jersey Turnpike, totaling his Land Cruiser (shown above in a picture from Almeida's Twitter account). "Thank you for the well wishes," Almeida wrote on Twitter yesterday shortly after the accident. "Amazingly not a single scratch. Felt like something just push me out of harm's way."
