He better. If he develops good standup to go along with his wrestling. 6'4 155. He'll have gigantic reach advantages on everyone. In my opinion, he'd be a force in the division.

I really hope he does because if he develops a good ground game and some more technical striking he is gonna be a force in that division. with his hieght he can easily move up a wieght class and maybe see him and grove go at it after some more training....

Pretty sure he wouldnt pass up the chance to train with Horn. Didnt Hill say he was only a few hours away form Jeremys camp in Utah?
Anyhow i think Hill needs some sick striking training.
If he can get is boxing up to a good level i think he could keep a lot of guys at bay with it. I just hope he learns some high kicks. With legs that long he could get a guy halfway across the ring.

Exactly...I think they wanted all the guys from season 5, excluding the 2 dudes were actually were fighting, to fight at the finale. Apparently Hill got injured and had to pull out, just like Ydoc said.

I think Corey will be back next year, after some Jeremy Horn training.

Corey hurt his ribs training with Miletich and is currently trying to decide where he's going to train full time, as it is going to involve him moving his family.

If his alter ego helps him be a better fighter then I hope they remain best friends for his entire career. Whatever gets him to fight like he did vs Nate will make for some very entertaining fights.

i am not doubting you, but could you post a source. I would dig it if he trained with Militech or Horn full time.
