UFC Quick Quote: Corey Hill medical expenses covered

"Corey Hill is still in the hospital. He had surgery, they put a plate in his leg. We paid for all that. We covered all those expenses. He'll go into rehab, we'll pay for that too."

-- UFC President Dana White tells Steve Cofield over at Yahoo!Sports.com that the promotion is picking up the tab after Corey Hill's shin was shattered to smithereens at UFC Fight Night 16: "Fight for the Troops" earlier this month. There were several readers asking this question when we talked about White's reaction to the carnage right here. It's more than likely a costly endeavor, which is not exclusive to just Hill -- the promotion covers its fighters despite apparently not having medical insurance. This latest update, of course, should not stop fans from donating to the Corey Hill fund. The father of three will likely be out of work for a very long time ... not to mention it's nearly impossible for him to pick up a side job in the meantime while recovering from such a catastrophic injury.
