Corey Hill returns with a win
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.
