UFC Will Pay For The Broken Leg Corey Hill Fractured At UFN 16 ‘Fight for the Troops’ Event

UFC lightweight fighter Corey Hill suffered a serious leg fracture during his fight against Dale Hartt at the UFN 16: ‘Fight for the Troops’ event held last Wednesday.  We posted a picture and short video of the incident here on UFCFight.com showing the gruesome injury. 

Gracie Tampa created the "Corey Hill Get Well Fund" in an effort to assist his wife and three children financially.  Although Zuffa (owners of the UFC) have officially taken responsibility of all of the medical expenses, Hill still needs all of the financial assistance he can get.  After all, he will not be able to work for at least a year and a half due to the lengthy recovery time.

Here’s a snip from the UFC President Dana White:

"Corey Hill is still in the hospital. He had surgery, they put a plate
in his leg. We paid for all that. We covered all those expenses. He’ll
go into rehab, we’ll pay for that too."

Corey Hill Undergoes Surgery Due To A Leg Fracture He Suffered Against Dale Hartt, Out 12 to 18 Months (UFN 16: ‘Fight for the Troops)

Corey "The Real Deal" Hill lost to Dale Hartt due to a leg fracture Hill sustained in their bout at the UFN 16: "Fight for the Troops" event.  During the second round of the fight, Hartt checked a right leg kick from Hill.  The video and pictures we posted earlier this week, clearly showed Hill breaking his right leg (shin area) in two completely separate pieces.  Hill fell to the floor once he tried to step back on the broken leg.  The referee immediately jumped in to stop the fight and doctors rushed into the cage to assist the injured Hill.

The UFC has announced that Corey Hill is currently at the Cape Fear Valley center in Fayetteville, North Carolina.  It is at this hospital where surgeons are taking care of his right leg fracture.  Apparently the doctors at the facility told media that Hill will be out from MMA competition somewhere between 12-18 months.  We wish Hill the very best of luck on his road to recovery.
