UFC Quick Quote: Corey Hill wants to be Anderson Silva

Corey Hill

"I just hope that the fans see the potential we see down here in Iowa. I want them to see the explosiveness of this new threat in the lightweight division. There are a lot of great guys out there and I'm still far away from where we're trying to go, but we're looking for me to be the Anderson Silva of the lightweights. There's not that standout, terrible guy that everybody's afraid of, and I essentially want to be that guy."

-- Popular contestant on season five of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Corey Hill, tells UFC.com that he aspires to one day be a devastating force in the lightweight division much like champion Anderson Silva is in the middleweight class today. The 6'4" beanstalk is set to make his official Octagon debut against Joe Veres next week at UFC Fight Night 12 on January 23 from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
