Corey Hill Biography:
Corey “The Real Deal” Hill was born in West Virginia, but grew up in a small pig farm in Tampa Bay, Florida. While he was a student at Springstead High School, he was a member of the football, track and wrestling teams. Thanks to his wrestling prowess, he was able to obtain a scholarship to Colby Community College in Kansas. Later on, he enrolled at Upper Iowa University, but dropped out of the school even though he only had twelve credits left to finish. Before he seriously began to train in mixed martial arts, Hill was working as a homebuilder. Currently, he trains with the Kongo Do Fight Team in Colorado Spring, Colorado, where he also resides with his wife and two children.
As a competitor on SpikeTV’s The Ultimate Fighter 5, Hill expects that his great striking ability and wrestling background will help him do well in the Octagon ring.
