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."
