Update: Corey Hill Hospitalized, But Not Dead

Despite previous reports to the contrary, former UFC fighter Corey Hill has not passed away.

TMZ Sports broke the news earlier today that Hill had passed away after being pulled off of life support while being hospitalized due to a severe bout of pneumonia.

After their report, the story spread like wildfire, as even the UFC issued a statement offering their condolences to his family and friends.

Since the initial report, TMZ has corrected their story, which now includes comments from Hill’s wife — Lauran — who says Hill is “resting and still alive.”

Lauran Hill added that her husband is a “strong fighter” and asked that the MMA community “pray for him.”

We will keep you updated as more information on Hill’s condition becomes available.
