Corey Hill Possible to Return in January; Patrick Cote Back Around April

Corey HillUFC lightweight Corey Hill and middleweight Patrick Cote, both sidelined since 2008 with injuries, will return to the Octagon in 2010.

Hill, who suffered a gruesome fight-ending leg break in a December loss to Dale Hartt, was expected to be out of action for up to two years, but he surprisingly resumed training over the summer and tells MMA Weekly he expects to return early next year, possibly in January.

Cote made it to the third-round against middleweight champ Anderson Silva last October, but a torn meniscus in his right knee ended the fight prematurely. Two surgeries have postponed his return, but Cote posted on Facebook on Sunday that rehab was going “very well” and that he will return around April.
