Emerson i think had the win , his leg kicks did more damamge then Hill's jabs. Also thought hill would of been dominating with the way he seemed. THe fight was actually a let down. Props to Emerson though on a good fight.

I'm not hating on Corey, at all. With Corey, you see athletic ability and willingness to fight, but there's nothing else yet. I think someone like Bas could really mold him into a complete fighter, or at the very least, give him some Muay Thai lessons. Corey with knee's could be very, very dangerous. There's potential.

That's what I was thinking. With his wrestling ability and height I was surprised Jens didn't have him working the clinch more, throwing knees and elbows. Really he kind of used the Tim Sylvia approach. Although Corey was willing to engage a bit more than Timmy.

Same here. I thought Jens would tell Hill to use his reach more, but oh well.

I do not get Dana's mancrush on Rob Emerson, at all.

boring fight i feel cory did win the third because he pushed the action. if it was not for that it would have looked like delahyoa vs mayweather... someone needs to push the action other wise mma will become very boring.

No i don't agree, Emerson clearly won round 2. the 3rd round was closer but emmerson won it. He did more damage and connected more.

Overall i wasn't impressed with either fighter, Corey needs some serious training. I don't think he will make it all the way to the finals.

Hill's a can.

With his size advantage, he should be picking people apart with ease, and just be a beast in there. But, he's not.

If he faces someone like Gray in the 2nd Round - he's gonna be dominated.

No way he won the 3rd round...atleast not from the fight I saw. The leg kicks alone won me over...

I was screaming at my tv for a tap at the end of the second...thats how saw the fight ending before hand. An 8" reach advantage is huge...I would have thought Emerson would have shot for more take downs...the reach wouldn't have been as big of an issue there, and it probably would have worked in Emerson's favor.

i think emerson won the 2nd and 3rd rounds for sure,but corey brings alot more hype to the scene his loud and very emotional and emerson is kinda laid back.who knows maybe thats what the ufc is looking for .there are a few fights i questioned since season 1, why did this guy win when it was pretty clear that he got his ass beat?

fists of fury

I think that just might be from having very little experience. I imagine after a few months training we'll see a different Corey Hill.
