From a high school state wrestling champion to a quarter finalist on The Ultimate Fighter, Corey Hill will be missed in the MMA community. His wife confirmed to TMZ Sports that he has passed away.
“Corey was a loving husband and devoted father,” Hill’s wife told TMZ Sports in confirming her husband’s death. “He was such a strong role model for our children, and would do anything to keep them safe and happy and healthy... a fighter til the end.”
Only aged 36, Corey Hill spent his early career in the UFC noting his UFC debut against Joe Veres and scoring a second round knockout.
