See, when you first hear about a 6’4″ fighter who weighs 155 pounds, you’re like “Cool! What a freak!”
And then you actually see him at the weigh-in. Good Lord. Corey Hill looks like he’s been dead for six months. You could see most of his organs. All Joe Veres has to do tonight is kick him in the ribs and he’ll turn to dust and blow away. They had to take this photo five times because flies kept landing on Corey’s face. Skinny, is what I’m sayin’.
At an official 5’6″, Veres is giving up 10 inches to Hill during the UFN 12 undercard tonight, though you can’t really tell in this photo because Hill is sort of hunched over and Veres is wearing heels:
Also, Mike Swick is sporting a concave stomach to go with his new weight class…
…and Michihiro “OMG”* Omigawa will be stepping into the Octagon with a glorious mullet.
* Not his real nickname, unfortunately.
