Corey Hill (1-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), a promising skyscraper of a lightweight who appeared on “The Ultimate Fighter 5,” will make his long-awaited official UFC debut against Joe Veres (4-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 12.

Veres’ agent, Ken Pavia, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the fight had been offered to Veres and that bout agreements have been signed.

UFC Fight Night 12 takes place Jan. 23 and airs on Spike TV.

Hill, a 6-foot-4 155-pounder from Brooksville, Fla., appeared on the lightweights-only season of “The Ultimate Fighter” earlier this year. On the reality series, he admitted he lied about his past experience to get on the show. He had just one professional fight, though he told show producers he had a few more. Hill eventually defeated Rob Emerson in a preliminary bout but lost to Nate Diaz in the quarterfinals.

Despite the 29-year-old’s inexperience, the MMA world has been abuzz about his potential — thanks largely to what is a 8- to 10-inch height advantage (and major reach advantage) over most of his fellow 155-pounders.

I am really excited to see that Corey Hill is returning soon. He shows a lot of promise, in what's already a tight division.

I always saw Hill as kind of a gimmicky guy. Yeah hes got a huge reach for a lightweight but thats about it. I wasnt impressed with anything else and i think most guys in the UFC would eat him up on the ground. Or standing up.

you dont speak for me you noob you

jj but yeah giving him a 0-1 in ufc 10 sec KO is worse than giving him a ufc debutant, but he is very very green and also rusty, they obviously want Corey to win and stay in the UFC, tho this fight will be an unseen prelim
