Corey Hill vs. Justin Buchholz UFC 86 fight in the works

Corey Hill vs Justin Buchholz UFC 86
Lightweights Corey Hill (2-0) and Justin Buchholz (7-2) are in talks to clash at UFC 86 on July 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to the rumors section over at MMAWeekly.com.

Hill -- the lanky and likable contestant from season five of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) -- most recently stopped Joe Veres via technical knockout in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 12 back in January. The 6' 4" Miletich-trained fighter will look to make it two in a row agains the Alaskan native.

Buchholz began his career with the Alaska Fight Championships and eventually migrated to warmer surroundings in Hawaii. He was on a nice four-fight win streak before meeting up with Matt Wiman in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 12 -- he was choked out in less than three minutes.

He'll definitely have his hands full with Hill -- he's a freak to be be competing at 155 pounds and be so tall.

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, and number one contender, Forrest Griffin, will headline the UFC 86 pay-per-view (PPV) event that also features a slew of American Top Team fighters.
