he may not be great but he is the biggest 155er i.ve seen. Just consider how he would do if he got a bjj game. Those arms and legs would consume many of the other LWs.

I guess Corey Hill didn't want to leave his home or his zone.

at first when i read this i thought hill was making a horrible mistake.

but in all reality, hughes specialty is wrestling and corey hill has plenty of experience himself with being a college wrestler

he needs to learn bjj and try to get his striking more crisp, i mean even in his 2nd fight on the show he completely dominated nate diaz on the stand up

and if you think nate diaz just has a weak stand up do me a favor and watch the fight with him and hermes franca

I just think it's not very smart to turn down an offer from a guy like Hughes, he is a top notch fighter and coach....bad call Corey!!

Yeah but is Matt Hughes going to teach him stand up?? Hill already knows how to wrestle. He needs help with BJJ and striking. Joining Matt Hughes wouldn't make sense, and he's staying loyal to Jeremy Horn, you got to respect that.

Is it 100% he is planning on staying with Jeremy Horn's camp?
