Fund Raiser for Injured UFC Fighter Corey Hill

Corey HillTUF veteran Corey Hill snapped his leg at the "Fights for the Troops" event last week. The injury was horrific and will require Hill to lay off from fighting for 12 to 18 months. That's a long time to go between paychecks.

Presumably the UFC's health insurance is paying for his surgery and rehab, but Corey has a family to support. So his team mates at Gracie Tampa have started a get well fund to help out:

Gracie Tampa's - Corey Hill Get Well Fund

Please help Corey get through his leg surgery and recovery. All donations are greatly appreciated and will help Corey with his medical bills and provide for his wife and three children through this holiday season.

Do what you can.

UPDATE: For those who don't feel professional athletes merit assistance, lets remember that Corey gets paid $8000 per fight (plus $8000 win bonus) and only fought three times this year, going 1-2. That's $32,000 gross, not net. After he pays his trainers, fees, etc, I'd be surprised if he brought home $25,000.

He won't be working in the UFC next year and I doubt his job prospects are particularly good until he recovers from having his shin bone snapped in half.

These guys fight for our entertainment. Have some MMA community spirit.
