"I’ve always been a thin guy with not a lot of body fat. I walk around on normal days at 166 [pounds]. When I train, I’m in the low 60s, so it makes sense to cut a few pounds rather than fight these guys that are 185-200 pounds cutting down to 170. If they think this guy’s too skinny, that’s their opinion. I have people on the other side that say that my body type’s the perfect frame to win a world title.... Kick something as hard as you can. I don’t think it matters if you’re a big guy or a small guy, you kick something as hard as you can and it runs into science. Action and reaction. For it to snap -- the perfect check, the perfect knee. If you noticed in the first round, I landed some killer leg kicks. That’s why he checked. This is why this happened."
-- Corey Hill sends a message from his couch via Sherdog.com to those who feel his 6'4" frame is too thin to compete at 155 pounds. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 contestant sustained a grizzly leg fracture when his opponent at UFC Fight Night 16: "Fight for the Troops," Dale Hartt, checked a kick from hill during their light weight bout at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., earlier this month. He is now out of the hospital, vowing to return if he can fully recover from the injury, which he feels will take much less than the 12 to 18 months as originally diagnosed.
