Corey Hill returns with a win

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com
 

Former UFC fighter Corey Hill won his comeback fight last night, defeating Jason Trzewieczynski by unanimous decision at an event in Niagara Falls, N.Y.

It was Hill's first fight in 13 months. In Dec. 2008, the former collegiate wrestler suffered one of the most gruesome injuries in MMA history, when he fractured the tibia and fibula in his right leg while throwing a kick. His shin snapped into a V-shape and he fell to the mat as the fight was promptly stopped.

Afterward, Hill was told by doctors that his fighting career was likely over.

The 31-year-old improved to 3-2.

Corey's second loss in the UFC shouldn't have counted against him. I'm surprised after how good the UFC took care of him after the injury that they would let him go? Someone already posted that it might be the UFC letting him fight in smaller promotions to get back into the swing of things, but lots of guys take injury leave and come right back to the big show. Wonder if CindyO could shed some light on this one?TTT for Corey and his recent W, welcome back!

 hey, I got a shout out on bloody elbow!  My commenting job has begun, lol! But I feel what you are saying, it's a small show, so maybe that's why.

How fucked up is the MMA "media" that they have to use posts they stumbled across on an internet forum as their source for a front page story: http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2010/1/24/1267837/corey-hill-and-luigi-fioravanti

Good for Corey to get the full 15mins, he needed that after the injury.
