That tall skinny dude from TUF5 is making some awesome career decisions. First he turned down a chance to be a part of Matt Hughes’ gay-sounding H.I.T. Squad, and now he’s popped up in a tiny show out in Iowa that was promoted by Amsterdam Strip Clubs this weekend. Corey won the fight against some random guy in the first round via ground n pound.
Now at first I was wondering: WTF is up with Corey not being in the UFC? But then I got to thinkin’ … Hill ‘snuck’ onto the show with only one real MMA fight to his name. Going into the UFC with this kinda experience and getting dismantled is not the best way to start a career. So in that way, all the power to Corey for sharpening his skills and earning a spot in the big show.
But why the fuck is he fighting in shady strip club shows? I’d be amazed if he got paid more than 500 bucks for the fight. Someone get this guy Ken Pavia’s number. Ken will line him up with a dozen fights against suitable fodder and have him making more cheddar than most of the TUF guys are making in the UFC.
